(By Iheanyi Ezinwo) – As 2019 draws nearer, the political strength of Governor Ezenwo Nyesom Wike is increasing in geometric progression as a new organisation,  Wike Solidarity Movement, WSM, sets up structures in the 23 Local Government Areas of the state.
Speaking at the official inauguration of the body on Friday in Port Harcourt, the Chairman of Board of Trustees and former Secretary to State Government, Hon. Gabriel Pidomson described the organisation as peculiar one with emphasis on Governor Wike’s re-election in 2019.
He said WSM has offices from the units, wards, local governments and state level and that their duty is to ensure that Wike gets re-elected in 2019.
Earlier, chairman of the occasion who is also the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state, Bro. Felix Obuah had thanked the group for conceiving and actualising the movement.

Emeka Olowu , Senator George Sekibo, former chairman senate committee on Defence and chairman of PDP Elders Forum, Chief Ferdinand Anabraba as well as Hon. Bright Amaewhule, Majority leader of Rivers State House of Assembly believe that, with the level of mobilisation recorded today, that the All Progressives Congress or any other party for that matter will no longer exist in Rivers State.
