The union of all Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) registered political parties in Rivers State has passed a vote of confidence on the government of Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike and urged him to keep up the tempo.
The group under the auspices of Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC), a body of all registered political parties, made their position known on Friday when they paid a courtesy visit to Governor Wike at Government House in Port Harcourt.
The IPAC Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah, said Governor Wike had performed creditably well within his first 100 days in office and deserved all the encomium being showered on him by the people of the State.
Bro. Obuah, who is also the State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said Governor Wike has convinced critics that he meant well for the people.
The IPAC leader stated that the vote of confidence on Wike by 28 of the 29 registered political parties in the State was further informed by the Governor’s nonpartisan disposition in the projects so far executed in the State.
Obuah remarked that the Governor had so performed that members of IPAC had become speechless, adding that there was nothing to criticize about at the moment.
He said that majority of members of IPAC are opposing political parties, they were conventionally bound to criticize his administration, but that the Governor’s achievement within so short a time has made that impossible.
Bro. Obuah assured Governor Wike that IPAC would continue to support his administration, adding that no one would stop his government, which he described as ‘God ordained’.
