Obi said: “If I had the opportunity of serving this country, the people of Rivers State, the people of Niger Delta would remain grateful to me because I would change the Niger Delta.

These oils we get from Niger Delta, people will see. What you are doing in Port Harcourt is to bring back the state from what it used to be.”

Obi added: “We assured Governor Wike that we will continue to work with him, continue the path you are treading and remain consistent. It is not easy when you are saying the truth.

It is not easy when you seek agreement, you have all those who live up to confusion as your enemy.

Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike has told residents to wait for his decision on the presidential candidate to vote for in 2023.

Wike said they should, however, vote massively for the candidates of the PDP in other positions such as governorship, National Assembly and House of Assembly.

Speaking on Tuesday while inaugurating the Rukpoku-Izo-Ogbodo-Igwuruta link road constructed by his administration, the Governor said they were still talking on the issue of the 2023 presidential election and whom they would support for the poll.

Wike said: “We have started doing Eneka internal roads phases one and two, Eneka to Igbo Etche, we are doing the SAARs Road going straight to Rikpogbodu. Remember from Eledo down to Rikpogbodu and Obirikwere road, I was the one who did it. I have now done Rumuakwu to Eneka road; Rumuakwu to Igwuruta link road.

“So, you are the ones owing us now. You did first for us and we retaliated by doing for you. Now we have come to ask you again to come and do for us. If you do for us, it means we will come and do for you again.

“You will vote for our governor, our Senatorial Candidates, House of Rep’ candidates and Assembly candidates. Then the other one I will come and tell you where you will vote. Don’t worry calm down, these ones I have mentioned now make sure you come and vote for them. Very soon, we will meet in our houses and take a decision where we are going to. We are still talking”.

Towards the end of his speech, the Governor stressed he was concerned only about Rivers PDP and its candidates saying “it is carry go” for the candidates from the State.

He said: “I have seen the picture of how here was. If you are doing business here or live here go and put the picture in front of your house. As you wake up, you see the state of the road before and now.

“It will make you to say this is the government we believe in and this is the party at the state level, listen to what I said ‘party at the state level we believe in’. At the state level this party is doing well and you must continue with us. I am speaking on a national TV. I want anybody anywhere to hear me. They won’t do me anything and they don’t have the capacity to try me”.

He added: “These other people know there is no way they can win Rivers State. They are only making noise to go collect money from people so that at the end of the day they will say they were rigged out.

“Who and who are following you? Which local government will you win and who are those there that will make you to win elections. There are opinion leaders that are influencers of people. You must vote for a party that has brought dividends of democracy.

“All about governance is the happiness of the people. Some people say they were governors for eight years, they didn’t do anything. So we have done our part”.

Peter Obi: If you truly love Igbo drop your presidential ambition-Anambra youths

A coalition of youths in Anambra State has asked the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Mr. Peter Obi, to bury his ambition, if he truly loves Igbo.

They said his entry into the race would spoil the chances of Ndigbo becoming the president after 2023 without proper alliance with other ethnic groups.

Briefing reporters yesterday in Awka, Anambra State, the National Leader of the coalition, Dr. Chinedu Ekwealor, said Obi’s entry into the presidential race was to give an advantage to one of the leading parties, All Progressives Congress (APC), to win the election.

The group said: “Our brother, Peter Obi, does not have this alliance and knows very well that an irate social media mob does not, and cannot, make him president.

“Obi’s presidential run is sabotage to Ndigbo. What he has only succeeded in doing is increasing APC’s chances of winning the election by depleting the votes of the Southeast for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“The implication is that the South Easterners will have to stay out of power for a minimum of another 16 years.

“This is because after Tinubu (if he wins), power will return to the North for another eight years, leaving Ndigbo out for another 16 solid years.

“If Obi truly loves Ndigbo, he should step down forthwith and strategise with other well-meaning Igbo elite in charting a way forward for the Igbo nation.

“We repeat, the presidency is not won on the premise of wishful thinking and hullabaloo of an untamed mob, who probably do not even understand the need for a pathway for the Igbo nation, pushing for a new narrative for the Igbo nation.”
