The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State has has congratulated State and National Assembly members of the party from the State for their successful inauguration.
The State PDP Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah in a statement in Port Harcourt said looking back at all that happened during and after the elections that brought the lawmakers to office, one cannot but acknowledge and thank God for His mercies and love for Rivers State.
The statement, signed by the media aide to the state PDP Chairman, Jerry Needam and made available to newsmen in Port Harcourt, said the only way, the party can show gratitude to God is to do that which is right for the welfare and good of all Rivers people.
Obuah said though it is regrettable that lives were lost for justice to prevail during the elections, it is therefore imperative, particularly on the part of the lawmakers, to ensure that the sacrifice of these martyrs were not in vain.
He particularly expressed gratitude to God for Rivers State and the State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike for the courage to withstand the political storm that characterized the elections in the State and prayed that the grace that sustained him continues to direct his footsteps in the days ahead.
Bro Obuah however, stressed the need for team work, if the lofty ideals and policies of the PDP-led government must remain on course and eventually actualized.
He therefore charged the lawmakers not to forget that the interests of their individual constituencies are paramount and to ensure that Governor Wike is given all the necessary support and encouragement to govern the State.
The State PDP boss while praying and committing the new lawmakers both at the State and Federal levels including the Wike administration in God’s hands, also pleaded with Rivers people to be understanding and patient, stressing that quality leadership and good governance require time and diligence.

Bode George Urges FG To Relax Lagos Lockdown
A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George has urged federal government to relax the lockdown it imposed on Lagos State as a result of COVID- 19 pandemic.
George, who made the call in a statement in Lagos, yesterday said the lockdown imposed since March 29 was adversely affecting livelihoods and bringing up security challenges.
He said though government intended to curb the spread of the virus with the lockdown, the directive had left many Nigerians hungry at home without palliatives.
The PDP chieftain noted that there must be a balance between curbing the spread of the virus and protecting livelihoods and asked the government to relax the lockdown while putting safety measures in place.
“Everywhere in Lagos is now locked down. The markets, banking halls, the local grocery shops, the supermarkets, the transportation services are all halted, frozen by the federal government directives since March 29.
“On the surface level, the federal government’s position is to ensure safety, prevent communal spread of the virus and banish this scourge from our shores.
“Lagosians have been staying at home for about a month now. In a largely informal economy where most of our people depend on daily wages, the burden of lack of income is devastating.
“There is a natural growing anger in Lagos as the most vulnerable are ravaged with hunger,” George said.
