The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has reiterated that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will take back the reins of governance at the federal level in 2019.
Addressing the party’s delegates at the state congress at the Obi Wali Cultural Centre in Port Harcourt yesterday, Wike said the reorganisation of the party would place it in a sound position to attain victory in 2019.
He said: “The PDP will return to the seat of power at the federal level by 2019. This congress is part of the process of repositioning the party.”
He assured the people of the state that the party would continue to deliver on all fronts in line with the pledges contained in the New Rivers Development Blueprint.
The governor said his administration had lived up to the expectations of the people of the state in the execution of pro-people projects and programmes.
He said: “This administration will showcase our superlative performance in the last one year between May 23 and May 29. The people will know first hand the quality projects we have executed.”
The state congress witnessed voting for new state executives of the party by 1024 accredited delegates from the 23 local government areas of the state.
