The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State has invited Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom to embark on tour of Governor Nyesom Wike’s projects in the state.
Chairman of the PDP in the state, Felix Obuah extended the invitation to Governor Ortom in a statement issued in Port Harcourt.
Obuah said the invitation became necessary because it would avail the Benue Governor better understanding of how to develop a state.
He advised Governor Ortom to tackle the issue of insecurity in Benue State or borrow a lead from Rivers.
According the the statement, “As Prominent Nigerians from within and outside Rivers State, including Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, continue to visit the State and join Governor Nyesom Wike on projects tour, pouring commendations and satisfactory comments on the various developmental projects initiated by the current administration in the State, the Chairman, Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Bro Felix Obuah, has extended invitation to the Benue State Governor, Mr. Samuel Ortom, for similar undertaking across the State.
“The PDP Chairman, while commending the Vice President, Prof. Osinbajo, other Governors, Senior citizens, religious and political leaders, who have made out time in spite of their tight schedules to come and see for themselves the developmental projects in Rivers State, particularly lauded similar visits by some All Progressives Congress, APC, Governors, who have demonstrated high spirit of patriotism and statesmanship during such visits and tours of completed and ongoing projects embarked upon by Gov Wike across the State.
“Apart from the landmark peace and security in the State, which is largely a product of the various deliberate and committed efforts and successful amnesty programme of Governor Wike, Port-Harcourt, the State capital, and its environs now wear a new look, following the Operation Keep Rivers State Clean initiative of the current administration.
Obuah maintained that, “infrastructural, human capacity and institutional development have been top priorities of the Gov Wike administration for which Rivers people, residents and business operators in the State are happy about.
“We expresse grave concern over the insecurity leading to continued loss of lives of innocent citizens in Benue State under the watch of Mr. Ortom, noting that any government worth its salt should be able to provide security for lives and property of its citizens, a great feat that the Wike administration has achieved, even in the face of apparent distractions and politicization of insecurity by the opposition party in the State.
“The PDP Chairman believes that visiting Rivers State and embarking on tour of developmental projects will avail Gov Ortom the opportunity to tap from Gov Wike’s wealth of experience and success story.”
“No man knows it all. If your style of leadership does not work, learn and adopt Gov Wike’s proactiveness in governance”, Obuah stated, while also commending the Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike “for the judicious use of the first tranche of the Paris Club fund from the federal government, even though it was meagre, compared to what was released to other APC controlled States.”
