Wike Declares To Re-contest In 2019

Gov. Nyesom Wike

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has declared his intention to seek re-election in 2019, saying the support of youths from the 23 local government areas was the reason for his declaration.

The governor also cited the endorsements from women, elders, ethnic nationalities and non-indigenes from the 23 local government areas, as yet another reason to fight for protection of the state beyond 2019.

Wike made the declaration on Saturday before commissioning the secretariat of the One Million Youths for New Rivers State, in Port Harcourt.

He said, “I want to tell you that I am prepared for that election (2019). Since the youths are the ones saying that I should come out to contest, I am ready to come out.

“Let the security agencies know that we are prepared. When they are thinking of shooting, they will fall asleep, until the elections are over and we are declared winners.”
