The Rivers State governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Dakuku Adol Peterside who has vowed to maintain the legacies of the present administration in the State has assured the people of Bonny Local Government area that he will engage in land reclamation and shore protection if elected governor.

Speaking as an Ibani son, Dakuku pointed out that the major problem with the people of the area is lack of land space.
The APC candidate said the people have less land space for the building of their residential homes, hence most of them have found alternative by traveling to Port Harcourt to buy land.
He promised the people that he will reclaim the land for the them to allow more land space for building and other activities.
He said the act of land reclamation and shore protection is a tedious one but assured the people that his administration will achieve it within his four years in office.
