Rivers State governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has called on Nigerians to pull the country from the brink of extinction by voting out President Muhammadu Buhari on February 16.
He said that Nigeria is at an unfortunate crossroad, saying that everyone is, therefore, under obligation to salvage the country from the grip of a non-performing president.
He spoke yesterday during the 2019 PDP Campaign Rally at State School 1, Bori.
He said: “On February 16, 2019, all Nigerians should persevere at the polling units to ensure we vote Atiku Abubakar and other PDP candidates and sack President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Nigerians is at a crossroad and anything can happen at anytime. The enemies of the country will never succeed”.
He urged Nigerians to defend their votes and their permanent voters cards, alleging that “the APC Federal Government has set up a committee to steal PVCs.”
The governor warned security agencies and INEC against plotting to rig. He said that any official involved in rigging would suffer the consequences.
He said that his administration has kept all his promises to the Ogoni people, pointing out that his second term would witness more profound projects in the area.
Wike warned the people of Khana Local Government Area against being deceived by the empty promises of the APC-led Federal Government.
He said that the Buhari administration has used the Ogoni Clean up exercise as a lying political tool, saying that it would never be implemented.
Governor Wike said that at the Federal level, President Buhari wants to cripple the judiciary and the legislature, the way the Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi closed the courts and State House of Assembly of Rivers State in 2013.
Also speaking, Deputy Governor Ipalibo Harry Banigo expressed happiness that Khana people are solidly behind Governor Wike. She said that Wike would never disappoint the Khana people.
