Court Judgment: Ignore Wike's Comments, APC Tells Rivers People

Tonye Dele Cole, governorship aspirant under the ruling All Progressives Congress, in Rivers, ahead of the 2019 general election, has stated that he would restore peace and unity to the state if he gets elected as the state governor.

Cole, who happens to be one of the governorship aspirants on the platform of APC, revealed this in an interview on Thursday in Port Harcourt.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Cole stated that Rivers state has been struggling with challenges of political division and even bitterness which had slowed down its development.

There is an entrenched bitterness in the state and that’s why we need to unite; we need to stand as a people and until we are able to achieve this, sustainable development will continue to elude us.

“As an experienced businessman and true Rivers son, I know that our people are desirous to work. They are desirous for peace and unity.

“So, I know that if given the enabling atmosphere, our unemployed youths would contribute to our economic development,’’ he said.

Cole stated that the people of the state are suffering from lack of good infrasturcture and will do anything possible to place and administration that will get it done in place.

All these good infrastructure that we haven’t had for years, we know that we want them and I believe that once these are in place, investors will be attracted to the state and employment will be guaranteed for youths,’’ he said.
