The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State, has applauded the invitation to Governor Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike by Chattam House, London, to deliver lecture on sustainable development.
The party described the development an affirmation by the international community of Wike’s commitment and contribution to the development of the state.
Chairman of PDP in the state, Chief Felix Obuah, in a statement issued in Port Harcourt, noted that through prudent use of meager resources available to him and his selfless efforts, the governor has ensured that infrastructural development is decentralized in the State which has ensured that the people have access to basic amenities.
Obuah said all these unprecedented efforts of the Wike-led administration are not only noted within the state, but also appreciated by international assessors who are so excited that besides conferring the governor with awards of excellence in leadership.
He further observed that the international recognitions accorded the governor have also rubbished his political opponents and their prejudices against his developmental efforts in the State.
The PDP chairman said, “We are also happy because we have been vindicated of our choice of Governor Wike as the best bet for the Office of Governor of Rivers State.
“Again, we are excited because the assessment by the international organizations is open to all public officers nationwide irrespective of the sector and it’s on record that no member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) whether at the state or federal level was considered worthy of recognition.”
While wishing the governor a very successful outing at the international conference, Obuah reassured that the PDP-led government in the state will stop at nothing in redeeming the State from the economic stagnation undeservedly poised on it by the immediate past administration.
He employed the people to always remain supportive and pray for Wike, whom he described as an internationally acclaimed agent of development.
