Youths Of Rivers State Declare Governor Nyesome Wike As Their Candidate For The 2019 Election
The youths, under the auspices of One Million Youths for New Rivers State, disclosed their decision, this weekend, in Port Harcourt, to support the second term bid of Governor Wike during a solidarity rally for Governor Nyesome Wike.
The youths in their hundreds, who stormed the city of Port Harcourt from the 23 local government areas of the state, said they had adopted Wike as their sole candidate for the election.
Coordinator of the group and a member of Rivers State House of Assembly, Edison Ehie, said the endorsement became necessary following the massive infrastructural development initiated by Wike across the state despite the economic meltdown.
Ehie said the reason for the call was to sustain the projects the governor has on ground, stressing that youths would ensure his re-election.
He said, “We the One Million Youths for New Rivers have endorsed Governor Wike as our candidate for the 2019 election. We are calling on him to re-contest and we will give him all the support.”
