This came as Wike urged Nigerians irrespective of their linguistic and religious  affiliations, to use their voter cards to sack the non-performing All Progressives Congress, APC-led Federal Government in 2019.

The non-indigenes,  under the platform of Non-indigenes Without Borders, trooped  to Government House, Port Harcourt,  where they declared their unalloyed support for Wike, come 2019.

Spokesman of the Igbo Community in Rivers State, Chief Emeka Vitalis, said that the Igbos will vote en-masse for Wike because his development projects have helped their businesses to grow.

The visit was like a carnival as different ethnic groups displayed their cultural dances and attires.

The non-indigenes stated that their support for Wike stemmed from his outstanding developmental strides which have improved their standard of living.

Responding, Wike assured the non-indigenes that he will continue to deliver quality projects and programmes that will improve the lives of residents of the state.

In his remarks, Alhaji Omotayo of the Yoruba Community and Henry Iyoha of the Edo/Delta Community in Rivers State said their endorsements of Wike stems from commitment to the welfare of all residents of the state.

The Bayelsa community in Rivers, represented by Agbai Tom, the Akwa Ibom/Cross River State community in Rivers State  led by Obong Godwin Inyang and the Muslim community in the state led by Hajia Mariam  also announced their respective endorsements for the re-election of Governor Wike.

Spokesman of the Hausa Community, Alhaji Maisundu said the Hausa Community  will mobilise votes for Wike in 2019 because he is a de-tribalised leader.

Commissioner of Special Duties, Emeka Onowu who is a non-indigene noted that Governor Wike has been a father to the non-indigenes, carrying them along as he develops the State.

Responding, Wike assured the non-indigenes that he will continue to deliver quality projects and programmes that will improve the lives of residents of the state.
