OPOBO NKORO LGA APC NEW MEDIA TEAM CALL ON DAKUKU TO CONTEST
The group wrote;
IT’S NOT ONLY WHAT YOU FOCUS ON BUT HOW
The established truth remains that, everyone is focusing on going into Brick House Ph come 2019. There are too many individuals and groups who are working to unsettle the incumbent governor Nyesom Wike in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Rivers state but the question underlying is “HOW” are they going about it.
The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Rivers state is the highest interested party in defeating the Governor. In the APC, there seemed to be too many qualified persons for this contest but of particular focus is _Dr. Dakuku Peterside_ the party’s candidate in 2015.
Dr. _Peterside_ though is yet to indicate interest in contesting next year’s elections but has on every occasion constructively critiqued all the inhumane policies of the current governor, something that is yet to be heard of anyone else.
Dr. _Peterside_ had and still have a better plan for the development of our dear state as can be seen in the *Road Map to Prosperity*. This dreams for our Rivers state cannot be allowed to end on the pages of the book containing it.
Dr. _Dakuku Peterside_ done so well for the *Nigeria Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA)* as the Director General. Dr. _Peterside_ whose time as the boss of the agency has seen the agency being very proactive in it’s regulatory affairs, got mariners to take compliance very seriously and remitted to the nation’s coffers more than any other Director General in the history of the agency (emphasis remains ours).
Going forward and in consideration to the fact that Rivers state is lagging behind in terms of development and human capacity development, and taking into cognizance the positive changes Dr. _Peterside’s_ has brought to *NIMASA*, we have no other choice than to respectfully and humbly call on Dr. _Dakuku Peterside_ to put himself forward for the gubernatorial ticket of the APC to contest for the governorship election in Rivers state come 2019.
As a people, we shall do everything within the ambit of every established laws to see to the realization of this ambition..
God bless you even as you consider our call!!
