Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has urged the  people of the state to remain  resolute  in the protection of their votes during  the  forthcoming rerun legislative elections.
Commissioning the phase one of the  reconstructed Nkpogu Bridge/Road and Ground Breaking for Phase 2, Governor Wike said  that  the  people of  Rivers State insist on  free and fair elections  despite  the  antics of  the  APC.
He charged the people of the state  to  vote for  PDP  candidates  during  the  rerun legislative elections for the sustenance of development  in the State.
The governor said : “There is no need to  allow  the  APC  to  come back to the state.  If you allow them to  come back,  they will  scuttle  development projects for our people.
“We are children  of light. We are in the promised land and we cannot return to the days of darkness represented by the APC “.
He added: “We must protect our votes to reclaim  our mandate.  This is our opportunity  to  tell Nigerians  once again  that this is a PDP state”.
Commenting  on  the  bridge, Governor Wike  said  it was started from the very beginning  to its completion.  He said the immediate  past  government  awarded the contract in 2012 but refused to fund the  project.
He said  the  bridge and road project will  improve  traffic  between  LNG and Trans-Amadi areas of  the  town.
The governor  called  on  the  people  to cooperate  with the contractor  to execute the phase 2 within the  approved timeline and specifications.
The programme  was attended  by  the  Deputy National Chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, Former Rivers State Governor, Sir Celestine Omehia,  Former Deputy Speaker of House of Representatives, Rt Hon. Austin Opara and Senator Lee  Maeba.
