The Peoples  Democratic Party  (PDP) caucus  of the  National Assembly has endorsed Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike for a second term.
Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu declared  that the endorsement is a fallout of Governor Wike’s  excellent performance, which has transformed Rivers State.
He spoke on Wednesday when he commissioned Ulakwo II-Afara-Nihi Road in Etche Local Government Area constructed  by the Wike administration.
He said: “If you take the statistics and look at what Governor Wike has done in two years , I can safely say that he has done more than all APC Governors put together “.
The Deputy Senate President said that Governor Wike has changed the story of Rivers State  from a state where  insecurity was rife eight years ago, to the centre of development projects in the country.
Ekweremadu said: “A lot more will still happen over the next six years of Governor Wike’s leadership.  Governor Wike is creating economic  corridors which will enhance economic development. More of Wike will transform Nigeria   “.
He expressed satisfaction  with the statewide  execution of projects by Governor Wike, saying that the sustained commissioning of projects  across Rivers State  in the last three weeks indicate that the governor  is a true example  of good governance.
In his remarks, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike stated that only the PDP can salvage Nigeria, because leaders of the party have the right vision for the development of the country.
He said while the APC prefers giving excuses for non performance, the PDP has remained committed to the delivery  of quality  projects.
The governor  berated the leadership of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) for trying to play politics with the development  of the  state. He warned the Managing Director of NDDC against taking further steps to undermine development of Rivers State as the people will resist him.
He assured Etche people  that he will continue  to execute people oriented projects  to cater for their developmental needs. He said in the next five weeks, his administration  will commission two other roads in Etche and flag off a road.
Member Representing Etche/Omuma Federal Constituency, Chief Jerome Eke described the roads constructed by Governor Wike in Etche Land as life saving. He said the economic and political relevance of the roads will be felt during the next  campaign.
Rivers State Works Commissioner, Iheanyichuwu Bathuel said that the 8-kilometre road was constructed to link communities  in the area.
Managing Director of Lubrik Construction Company, Golbert Sassine said that the Rivers State Government  has paid in full for the construction  of the road.
