Wike's thanksgiving event hailed as a success

29 February 2016, 18:54

Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed gratitude to members of the public for attending the thanksgiving service held this past weekend in support of the endorsement of Governor Nyesom Wike's election.

Rivers PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah, expressed “boundless joy” and “gratitude” over the attendance at Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt.

The PDP Chairman particularly thanked the people of Rivers State, the PDP faithful from the 23 Local Government Areas and the non-indigenes who defied hot conditions to attend the PDP-organised event.

He also appreciated the attendance by the National Chairman, Alhaji Ali Modu Sherriff, the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, and members of the National Assembly led by the Minority Leader, House of Representatives, Leo Ogwu.

“The party in the state is proud of the national leaders and will continue to support all programmes and policies of the party aimed at the development and successes of the party at the state and national levels,” Obuah said.

He commended Wike, for all his support leading to the success of the party and the event.

Obual commended the Supreme Court for the ruling.

The rival All Progressives Congress had challenged the election of Wike citing violence and vote rigging.

Earlier, it denounced the thanksgiving service as “shameful” and “insensitive.”
