His excellency, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike is the governor of the oil rich Rivers state. What many do not know about him, however, is his determination to put his party, the People’s Democratic Party, first in his political undertakings.
Testimonies abound of his commitment and faith in the party, which is second to none. He is not just a rock in PDP but a stabilizing factor in Nigeria Democracy. He is always ensuring that the needed opposition that is an influential ingredient in democratic culture is established in Nigeria.
His faith in PDP has helped in developing democracy in Nigeria. Aside from his commitment to the betterment of Democracy in Nigeria, Wike has turned his own Rivers state to an enviable state with his outstanding projects that cut across every sector of the Rivers state economy.
From Building bridges to schools, hospitals to provision of pipe borne water, critical hospital facilities to comfortable accommodation for both Legislature, executive and judiciary staff, he ranks first on many counts. Rivers State is the bride of many investors.
Governor Wike towers above many of his peers in accountability, probity and truth. His frank opinion on many national issues has him a darling of many citizens, especially the youths across political and ethnic divides.
His contributions towards deepening the practice of constitutional democracy would always remain golden in the annals of Nigerian political history.
Long the Rivers State born political icon who has had a tremendous impact on our democratic culture, Governor Nyesom Wike,
Long live the People’s Democratic Party, PDP,
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
