The Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers State will on Saturday (today) unveil its governorship candidate, Siminalayi Fubara, ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The Chairman, Publicity and Communications Committee of the PDP campaign, Chief Ogbonna Nwuke, said the PDP would show strength during electioneering campaign and continue to dominate political space in the state.
He said all was set for the unveiling of the candidate at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, Igwuruita, near Port Harcourt.
Nwuke said, “Rivers State is PDP and PDP is Rivers State. The PDP will be asking for a fresh mandate of four years from the Rivers people.
“We and the people are one and remain appreciative of the support they have continued to give the party.
“Let me say that the request for a fresh mandate is borne out of the conviction that we have kept our part of the social contract. Governor Wike has done exceedingly well.
“Most Nigerians agree that Governor Nyesom Wike has surpassed the expectation of many. He has put the Rivers State on a path to genuine development and progress.
“We are ready, not just for the unveiling ceremony, but for the campaign in all the 23 local government areas of the state,” he added.
