Dr. Jerry Mene further explained  that they were in the office of  the special adviser to brief him on the workings of the group, elaborating that PDP Total Grass root Movement  in Rivers State has 24 members per unit as monitors in the 4442 units  across the 23 Local Government areas of the state,  and  that in the past three months,  they have been involved in door to door campaign for Wike’s re-election in 2019.

He  thanked  the special adviser  for giving them the opportunity to have the meeting and requested for opportunity to visit the governor, to,  among other things, present an  award to him as the Best Community Friendly Governor in Nigeria.

In his remarks,  Barr.  Emeh   welcomed the PDP Total Grassroots Movement and thanked them for what they have been doing for PDP in Rivers State.

The Emohua born  politician said that he is happy that the organization  has a national outlook  and was inaugurated by the party at the national level, and also cooperating  with  the Sir Felix Obuah led executive in the state.

Excited with the work of the organization for Governor  Wike, Chief Emeh  geclared that a vote for the governor is a vote for prosperity, for continuity and   for the security of   the future of Rivers State.

The special adviser assured his guests that the PDP in Rivers State is adequately prepared to win all elections in 2019, and warned that Rivers people are ready to resist any attempt by the APC  to rig the forthcoming elections.

“We are happy that your organization,  with a  national outlook  and a chapter in Rivers  state appreciates the difference that Governor Wike is making to advance the course of development in the state, and working for his re-election in 2019.

“Wike is a passionate and loving politician, who is committed to the welfare of the people of Rivers  state. His  candidature cuts across ethnic barriers and so has  eliminated the age long reverine upland dichotomy, as our people are now convinced  and united  in opinion, more than ever before, that only ability to perform, rather than primordial sentiments, should be the precondition for voting any body into office”, the political strategist  emphasized.

 

In a related development, another group known as Divine Peace for Niger Delta Youth Initiative  were also on a visit to the office of the Governor’ s Special Adviser on Political Matters and Strategy, Chief Emeh Glory Emeh, on Wednesday,   to brief him on their programmes in support of  Governor Wike’s re-election in 2019.

In his address, the  National President of the group, Engr. Peter Angolapu and National Secretary, Christopher Ordu, described Governor Wike as a trusted and reliable  leader, who has the interest of Rivers people at heart,  just as the same for others who live and do business in Rivers State.

Engr. Angolapu commended the governor for all the numerous projects he has put in place for the benefit of people of Rivers State, and assured that Divine Peace for Niger Delta Youth Initiative,  which has over five thousand members in the  State, are  ready to support the governor’s  second term bid in 2019.

Responding,  the Special Adviser to the Governor on Political Matters and Strategy, Barr. Emeh Glory Emeh, thanked the Divine Peace for Niger Delta Youth Initiative for their visit and show of love for the governor.

“I am happy to receive you today. Your decision to work for Governor Wike  is not  misplaced because Wike has demonstrated love and passion for the interest of our people. At the moment, we have over 50 Non Governmental Organizations galvanizing support for the re-election of the governor and at the appropriate time, we will put all of you together to start off a formal campaign for the re-election of our governor.

“Meanwhile, I will urge your members to keep their PVCs handy because it is with that you can actualize the objective of having Governor Wike continue with his good works,” he stressed.
