Rivers South-East PDP Campaign Rally Rivers PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah Gives Kudos To Ogonis, Others For Massive Turn-out

By Rivers State PDP

The overwhelming massive turn-out of the Ogoni people and the people of the other six Local Government Areas that make up the Rivers South/East Senatorial District for the National and State Assembly re-run campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is a political statement and an indisputable endorsement of the PDP and its candidates for the election.

Bro Felix Obuah, State chairman of the PDP made this declaration while reacting to the overpowering crowd that flooded Bori, Ogoni, venue of the Senatorial District’s campaign rally.

Expressing his joy and satisfaction with the love and warm reception exhibited by the hosts, the Ogoni people, through a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, the State PDP boss said he was amazed by the enthusiasm and steadfastness shown by the grieving Ogoni people who just about a week ago lost a number of their people to overzealous political office seekers from the area who incited unwarranted military attack on the people.

Bro Obuah, who described the support exhibited by the Ogoni people as simply infectious and unprecedented promised that they will not regret following the right path by choosing to support Governor Nyesom Wike-led government and the PDP.

He urged them to translate all their love and support to another amazing victory for the PDP by coming out enmasse on Saturday, March 19, to vote for all PDP candidates, conduct themselves peacefully but guard their votes religiously.

According the State PDP chairman, all the Rivers South/East and the Ogoni people in particular must be greatly rewarded by government for their support and enjoined them not to relent.

“May I once more reiterate our great concern about the regrettable onslaught that was brought on the Ogoni people recently by the desperate opposition politicians from the area and wish to express our condolences to the affected families. We, as a party will ensure that those that lost their lives in that barbaric encounter did not die in vain neither will their assailants go scot free.

But to be able to carry out all our plans and prayers we need to form a formidable force to back-up our able and action governor, Chief Barr. Nyesom Wike by revalidating our mandate to all the PDP candidates for the National and State Assembly on Saturday.

As you carry out this civil responsibility, we pray we’ll gather here again shortly after the election for greater victory celebration,” Bro Obuah prayed.
