From Blessing Ibunge, Port Harcourt
The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has congratulated State and National Assembly members of the party, for their successful inauguration.
The state Chairman of PDP, Mr Felix Obuah also thanked God for his intervention in the victory of the party members during the 2019 general elections in the state.
He said “looking back to all that happened during and after the elections that brought the lawmakers to office, one cannot but acknowledge and thank God for His mercies and love for Rivers State.
“The only way, we can show gratitude to God is to do that which is right for the welfare and good of all Rivers people.”
The PDP boss who regretted the lose of lives during the elections, said that “it is imperative particularly on the part of the lawmakers to ensure that the sacrifice of these martyrs was not in vain”.
He expressed gratitude to God for Rivers State and the State Governor, Barr Nyesom Wike for the courage to withstand the political storm that characterized the elections in the State and prayed that the grace that sustained him continues to direct his footsteps in the days ahead.
Obuah however, stressed the need for team work if the lofty ideals and policies of the PDP-led government must remain on course and eventually actualized.
He therefore charged the lawmakers not to forget that the interests of their individual constituencies are paramount and to ensure that Governor Wike is given all the necessary support and encouragement to govern the State.
The State PDP boss while praying and committing the new lawmakers both at the State and federal levels including the Wike administration in God’s hands, also pleaded with Rivers people to be understanding and patient, stressing that quality leadership and good governance require time and diligence.
