The Rivers State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has commended Gov Nyesom wike for the warm reception and successful hosting of President Muhammadu Buhari who was represented by his Vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo during the flag-off of the UNEP Report on Ogoni Clean-up.
The State PDP chairman, Bro Felix Obuah said the successful flag-off of the UNEP Report graced by the physical presence of Gov Wike himself has exposed the lies of political detractors that there is insecurity in the State just to disparage the efforts of the State government.
He said, “The State chief executive has by his conduct and peaceful disposition not minding the malicious insinuations of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) in the State before and during the Presidential visit.”
Bro Obuah wondered why certain overzealous politicians who claim they are more qualified than others to lead the people find it difficult to support and acknowledge the commendable efforts of the governor.
He took particular exception to the statement of the APC on the eve of the President’s visit that there were plans to protest and disrupt the flag-off of the UNEP Report in the State, describing it as stupidity of the highest order.
“If not for the grace of God and maybe, the insistence of the Presidential entourage to see things for themselves, that irresponsible statement was enough to make the president put off the flag-off.
“But thank God, they came despite the politics of calumny and they have witnessed the peaceful disposition of our action governor and his earnest prayer to have the clean-up of Ogoni land and elsewhere in the Niger Delta kick off. This is political maturity,” Bro Obuah stressed.
