Wike tasks lawmakers on unity for better outcome in 2023



Governor Nyesom Wike has urged representatives of Rivers State in the National Assembly to remain united for the “collective recovery of the positions lost at the national (level) in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.”

He also charged them to be focus as well as keep faith with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and defend the interest of the state without fear.

Wike made the appeal yesterday while presenting 15 sports utility vehicles (SUVs) to the legislators at Government House, Port Harcourt.

Represented by the state PDP chairman, Desmond Akawor, the governor said the gesture was to facilitate effective discharge of their legislative duties.


Responding, Senator George Sekibo (Rivers East) thanked the state chief executive for the gifts.

He noted that despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic on finances, the governor still saved for the vehicles.

Also speaking, the member representing Khana/Gokana Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Dumnamene Dekor, applauded the benevolence, adding that Wike had been consistent in encouraging them to protect the interest of Rivers people.

Similarly, his Obio/Akpor Federal Constituency colleague, Kingsley Chinda, assured the governor of their continued support.

Boma Goodhead, who represents Akuku-Toru/Asari-Toru Federal Constituency, prayed for greater triumph for Wike, “because he has always integrated the National Assembly members in the scheme of things.”

In his remarks, Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Dr. Tammy Danagogo, stressed the existing understanding between the federal parliamentarians and the current administration.

He said the synergy was informed by his principal’s capacity to “unify all segments of leaders.”
