2015: Rivers leaders reject PDP
Prominent leaders from the 23 local government areas of Rivers State Friday urged voters in the state to stand with Hon. Peterside Dakuku in February 2015, so that they can continuously put the state on the right track to a prosperous and productive future.
Meeting under the umbrella of Rivers Consolidated Forum (RCF) in Elele Alimini to discuss Rivers’ future and how to get the state there, the leaders said Dakuku would create jobs if elected in 2015.
“How will Rivers be in 2019? In four years, we expect to see Rivers State leading the rest of the states in the country. We expect to see a state where government is consigned to protecting the rights of each individual. We also expect an economic revival” they said.
Attended by political and opinion leaders across the 23 local government areas in the state, the leaders said “Rivers people will enjoy a dynamic and thriving economy”
“Dakuku will offer a stable political and economic business environment that will attract foreign investors. He will take seriously the issue of security in our state” the leaders who cut across party lines said.
Speaking to journalists after the meeting, Chairperson of Rivers Consolidation Forum, Mrs. Ibifuro Thompson Tatua advised the people to choose carefully in 2015.
“I’ll be clear because I know what the people want to hear. Dakuku is the best candidate. He will be governor in 2015” she said.
On poverty, lack of jobs, failing schools and income inequality in the country, Tatua praised Amaechi for addressing political and economic challenges in Rivers State.
“The state is better off since Rotimi Amaechi took office. The economy is growing” she said.
“Delivering a quality education for our children, strengthening businesses and expanding services are what you get by voting the All Progressive Congress (APC)”.
“Dakuku will help Rivers people achieve their dreams. He will focus on the needs and problems of the people” she added.
