2023: Nwanosike Tips Wike For President
Re-elected chairman of Ikwerre local government council, Engr. Samuel Nwanosike has tipped the Governor of Rivers State Chief Nyesom Ezebunwo Wike to emerge as the next president of Nigeria in 2023.
Nwanosike who spoke at an event he organized to appreciate members of his re-election campaign team at Igwuruta, expressed the belief that by the grace of God, Nigerians will elect Gov. Wike as the next President of the country.
He described the governor as a man of truth who has touched the lives of Rivers people in all facets of development.
According to the Chairman, Governor Wike has been grooming leaders that will take over the mantle of political leadership of Rivers state, adding that the governor has proven himself as a tested and capable leader. “Wike is a gift to Nigeria nation, for always standing for the truth,” he declared.
The chairman berated critics of the local government elections in the state describing them as of bad losers who never engaged in election campaign the way his party the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) did.
“The PDP campaigned vigorously in all the 23 local governments and wards. It is baffling that a student who failed to read properly for an exam could blame his lecturer for his failure.”
On the comment by a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Chiefs Emeka Bekee over the local council election, the Ikwerre Council boss said, the APC chieftain had no audacity to criticized Governor Wike over the council election, adding that the 2021 local council election under the Wike administration cannot be compared to what he termed the sham council election conducted by former Governor Chibuike Amaeachi within two weeks before leaving office in 2015.
“Nigerians are aware that a count of competent jurisdiction annulled that election as null and void. In the history of democracy in Rivers state, Governor Wike inaugurated a properly constituted Rivers State Independent Electoral Commission (RSIEC) which conducted local government election where there were no violence and manipulations but free and fair,” Nwanosike stated.
He expressed the readiness and commitments of the elected leaders of the local government council to work for the development of Ikwerre people, adding that all ongoing projects will be completed and new ones stated.
Nwanosike thanked the campaign team headed by Hon. Sonny Nwadkiko for their effort in the election. The event was attended by the elected and serving councilors of the council.
