Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has charged the recently elected National Assembly members in the state not to pledge loyalty to the Peoples Democratic Party National Working Committee, when inaugurated.
Wike said the party’s leadership did not contribute to the success of their elections, therefore, the lawmakers must only be concerned about the unity of the country and the interest of Rivers State.
Governor Wike stated this when the House of Representatives members-elect on the platform of the PDP visited him to present their certificates of return.
The governor said he is optimistic that the PDP in the state will perform well in the next election as it did in the February 25 polls, even as more groups endorse the party for the March 18 election.
Wike’s comments come few hours after he took aim at the campaign team of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, over their protest of the outcome of the February 25 poll.
Atiku came second in the keenly contested presidential election, polling 6,984,520 votes, while winner Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) got 8,794,726 votes.
