Bori (Rivers) The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers, Mr Nyesom Wike, on Thursday urged Ogoni people to vote for President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 election.
Speaking at a ‘’Thank You’’ rally in Bori, in Khana Local Government Area, Wike said that Jonathan had implemented about 70 per cent of the United Nations Environment Report (UNEP) on the cleaning of Ogoni land.
He said that if elected as governor of the state, he would carry everybody along, with a sense of belonging for all.
He urged them not to vote for the opposition, because their yearnings and aspirations would not be met.
Wike, former minister of state for education, said ‘’ I will be governor for all Rivers people if elected. ‘’We will carry everybody along.
‘’I am also an Ogoni son and that’s why I came here to thank you people after emerging as the governorship candidate of our party. We will commence the full election campaign in January,’’ he said.
Wike stated that PDP was poised to reclaim Rivers from the opposition, claiming that the state rightly belonged to the party. (NAN)
