In appreciation of the outstanding performance of Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, thousands of Rivers youths on Wednesday staged a 4-kilometre walk , endorsing the governor for a second term.
The 4-kilometre walk tagged Walk4Wike Season 2, took off from the Port Harcourt Pleasure Park through the length of Aba Road and terminated at the Government House, Port Harcourt.
In the course of the long trek, the youths shared handbooks, DVDs containing Governor Wike’s achievements and sang pro-Wike campaign songs to further sell the governor to the people.
The walk which was coordinated by D-Source Connect Group, had endorsements and participation from hundreds of social media and civil society groups .
Speaking after the Walk, Convener of the Walk4Wike Season 2, Barrister Vincent Dike Amadi declared that Rivers youths resolved to stage walk as a way of telling the international community and other Nigerians that the people were in full support of Governor Wike.
He said that contrary to the negative propaganda being sponsored by opposition elements, Governor Wike has performed creditably, churning people oriented projects across the state.
Amadi said: “The youths of Rivers State have come to say that come 2019, Governor Wike should present himself for a second term.
” We will March across the 23 Local Government Areas to promote the candidature of Governor Wike and to ensure that he wins in 2019″.
