As the world observes the International Women’s Day on Tuesday, March 8, 2016, the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State, Bro. Felix Obuah felicitates with women in the State and charged them to continue to help in building good homes and to support the administration of Chief (Barr) NyesomEzenwoWike in his efforts in enhancing moral family values in the society.

In a statement signed by Bro. Obuah’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, the PDP Chairman described Governor Wike’s gender friendly disposition as second to none, adding that the Governor not only chose a woman, Dr. (Mrs) Ipalibo Harry Banigo as his Deputy but had placed several women in positions of trust in his administration.

Bro. Obuah added that in this phase of the nation’s democracy, the place of women in national development cannot be overemphasized. He noted that any government which fails to factor in the role of women in national planning would be doing so at its peril.

The PDP Chairman seized the opportunity of the International Women’s Day to specially thank Rivers women for their love and support for the party and the massive votes given Governor Wike and other PDP Candidates during the 2015 General Elections, and urged them to replicate same in the State and National Assembly Re-run Elections billed for March 19, 2016.

The PDP Chairman, Bro. Obuah enjoined the women to come out in their thousands on the National and State Assembly re-run election day and cast their votes for all the PDP Candidates.

The State PDP Chairman further used the occasion of the Mothers’ Day to commiserate with the women of the Rivers South-East Senatorial District on the gruesome murder of over 17 Ogonis, including pregnant women in Yeghe, Gokana Local Government Area and Bori, Khana Local Government Area by men of the Nigerian Army on February 22 and 23, 2016, an operation instigated by Magnus Abe and Barry Mpigi.

He stated that voting massively for all PDP Candidates during the Rerun Election would serve as pay back for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Candidates in the State whose desperation led to the killing of Ogoni children and pregnant women in Yeghe and Bori and other Ogoni communities.
