Governor Wike stated this during the inauguration of the Isiopko Internal Roads Phase 2 in Ikwerre Local Government Area, performed by the 2019 Vice Presidential Candidate of PDP, Peter Obi on Wednesday.
The governor stated that he has laid a good foundation of leadership by completing all the projects that he inherited from his predecessor and will complete all the projects that he initiated so that his successor will have a smooth sail in governance to initiate his projects and pursue them.
“No matter the tactics they deplore, no party can take Rivers State away from PDP. They have to convince the people why they need the support of Rivers people. It is already known, they have nothing to offer,” Wike said.
The Governor added;
“We have something to offer and we have offered it to the people. They are angry that we are commissioning projects. Our business as a party is to make the other people to have serious high blood pressure.”
Wike further stated that;
“Anywhere they are now they are crying that we are in every local government inaugurating projects. We are not vindictive. We are a government that carries everybody along.”
The governor also stated that only local government Council Chairmen who have demonstrated competence in office and have evidence of projects they have provided will qualify for re-election.
“Government is about what you can bring to your people. It is not what you will put in your pocket,” he said.
