The market women, youths and commercial motor cyclists in unison said they would work for the re-election of the governor because his projects have impacted their lives positively.

The LG chairman noted that the decision to re-elect Wike flows from the fact that more projects would be attracted to the area during his second term.

He declared: “All Rivers youths will stay at the INEC office and defend their votes. We will not be intimidated by the use of SARS, military or thugs. We shall stand firm to defend votes cast in favour of the PDP and Governor Wike”.
Secretary-General of the One Million Youths for New Rivers State, Mr Major Jack noted that the large turn-out of the masses in Ikwerre Local Government Area indicates that Governor Wike’s re-election was a foregone conclusion.
Thousands of residents responded to the sensitization tour which was marked by rallies, distribution of handbills and direct reach-out by One Million Youths for New Rivers State volunteers.
Highpoint of the occasion was the acceptance of APC decampees into the PDP.
The spokesman of the decampees stated that they are impressed with the performance of Wike.
Meanwhile, the Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike has challenged the contractors handling the Rivers State Judges’ Quarters to ensure that they deliver the project in the next two months.
