The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers state, Sir Siminalayi Fubara has affirmed that the people of Opobo/Nkoro LGA know what to do as it concerns the forthcoming electoral season, and as such would sound like a broken record telling them what to do.

Speaking at the grand finale of the PVC sensitization rally at Opobo ultra modern car park on Saturday, the PDP standard bearer maintained that only non-indigens would in their struggle for support, tow the path of abusing people to attract attention.

Sir Fubara stated that as an indigen and free born of Opobo whose home training, parentage, and ancestral home still stands in the kingdom, only character worthy of emulation can be attributed to him, and not the other way around. He added that at the appropriate time, the host LGA will do the needful.

President General of the Grassroot Development Initiative, Chief Bright Amaewhule while addressing the GDI family said in championing the PVC awareness campaign across the 23 LGAs, subscription to the 5G service is sacrosanct as it favours both the rich and poor without discrimination.

Also speaking at the event, former civil service commisser, Mrs Sotonye Toby Fulton stated that having concluded the first assignment of successful PVC registration, the actual collection becomes more imperative as it is the power, right and voice of the electorate.

She equally added that entrenching good governance begins with the PVC, citing an example of the Opobo/Nkoro axis of the Unity road constructed by the executive governor of Rivers state, Chief (Barr) Nyesom Ezenwo Wike. Going forward she urged everyone to remain simplified to sustain development in the area.

Earlier, the executive chairman of Opobo/Nkoro LGA Rt. Hon (Dr) Enyiada Clifford Cookey-Gam exclaimed that the grand finale homecoming to Ibani nation, without doubt summarizes the adage, “he who laughs last, laughs best”, given the carnival-like outing in the LGA.

The council boss went further with assurances that all PVCs still in custody of INEC will be picked by the indigenous owners in the shortest possible time. He added that they are ready to make a statement with the PVC; speaking in unity and in one voice as history is being made in the state.

The side attraction of the event is the special appearance of a renowned rap king, Dandizzy as he thrilled the audience with his captivating freestyle. Interestingly, Dandizzy is from Opobo kingdom.

Among those in Fubara’s entourage at the event were, the deputy governorship candidate, Prof. Mrs Nma Ngozi Odu; chairman of inter-party advisory council, Amb. Desmond Akawor and his team; Deputy Speaker, Rivers State House of Assembly, Rt Hon. Edison Ehie; the Majority leader of Rivers State House of Assembly, Hon Martin Amaewhule; Mayor of Port Harcourt, Hon Alwell Ihunda and other council chairmen; Dr Sam Sam Jaja; Sen.
