MY GOVERNMENT WILL TURN ETCHE INTO AN ECONOMIC HUB – TONYE COLE
The Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC Rivers state Pastor Tonye Cole has assured Etche people of speedy development if he is elected and sworn into office come may this year.
The candidate of the party Tonye Cole gave this assurance while flagging off his campaign exercise in Chokocho in Etche Local Government area of Rivers State. He said it’s sad that Etche being one of the local government areas that has contributed to the economic strength of the state, will be relegated and deprived of development because of politics.
“Because you have chosen to affiliate with us, the State Govt has denied you what is rightfully yours”.
“I am here to assure you that your steadfastness will not be in vain.
“You stood for respect and dignity, When we form government, we shall treat you with the respect and dignity you have shown”.
Cole added that Governor wike and the PDP having tried every means to ensure that APC is not on the ballot but failed. After failing in the courts they tried a different option of executive orders to stop them from campaigning.
“Wike has tried all he can to stop us from participating in this election by using the court but here we are today”
“They came and lied that we would not be on the ballot, they said inec will not recognise us. But we are here on ground to tell you that we on the ballot and we are campaigning”.
Also speaking, the APC Chairman in the State High Chief Emeka Beke
called on Etche people to vote themselves out of the political bondage that Governor Nyesom Wike has put them by voting all the APC candidates come May 27th.
“I am speaking as the chairman of this party; God has told me we are going to win this election”. He appealed to Etche people to take advantage of the ongoing Voter’s card collection exercise to collect their PVC.
Speaking on behalf of other flag bearers for State and national assembly, Senatorial candidate representing Rivers South East, Engr. Ndubuisi Nwankwo, promised that if elected, they are going to use their offices to canvas for the development of Etche and Rivers State at large.
