(By Iheanyi Ezinwo)- Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has inaugurated committees responsible for the organisation of the South South rally of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, with a charge to the chairmen, secretaries and members of the committees that money do not win election but commitment, passion and love for the party.
Speaking at the Rivers State PDP 2019 Campaign head quarters in Port Harcourt on Monday, Governor Wike informed the committees that the rally, billed for the Adokiye Amiesimaka stadium in Port Harcourt, comes up February 11, even as he stressed that money only aids those who love the party to put all relevant machinery in place to achieve success.
Wike, who is the coordinator of the PDP presidential campaign in the south south, said the assignment of the committees demands total commitment for the world to know that South South Nigeria is PDP, and that PDP is the South South, just as he further explained that the chairmen of venue, security, media committees have to come from Rivers State, where the event is taking place but that all the six states of the south south are well represented in the committees.
Earlier, the National Vice Chairman of PDP, South South, Bro. Emma Ogidi, had informed the gathering that Governor Wike is the coordinator of the presidential campaign in the South South zone of Nigeria, and the one to carry out the inauguration of the committees for the presidential campaign rally.
He urged all those concerned to work hard, assuring that the PDP is going to win the 2019 presidential election, and that their sacrifices for the party shall not be forgotten.
Present at the inauguration ceremony were PDP chairmen in the six states of the south south and other party chieftains.
