The Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, on Sunday emerged as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2019 general election in Rivers.
Wike, while making an acceptance speech after emerging victorious at the PDP primary election, thanked the delegates for electing him.
The Governor promised that he would not disappoint those who placed their confidence in him.
“In the past three and half years, we have experienced tremendous economic growth as a result of our investments in the security system which has attracted local and foreign investors.
“As a former council Chairman, a former Chief of Staff and a former Minister, I shall bring my experience to bear in the continued governance of the state,” Wike said.
The governor also pledged to provide more democracy dividends for the people in his second tenure, while asking Rivers people to vote massively to return the PDP to power in 2019.
