Tonye Dele Cole over his emergence as the Governoship flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Rivers State for the 2019 general elections, after a keenly contested primaries.
Your emergence is both symbolic and historic. It is symbolic because it signifies a new dawn of development and good governance for Rivers State; it is historic because it brings political balance to our dear State, therefore, bringing an end to the undemocratic, unjust and inequitable reign of political power in the upland section of Rivers State for over two decades.
Within the short while you have interacted with Rivers people, you have re-ignited the spirit of oneness in the hearts of our people with the catchwords “One Rivers, One people” you have strengthened the hopes and aspirations of our people with your vision of prosperity for all and you have rekindled the confidence of the common man in our collective aspirations as a people with the trending phrase “Make we do am?”
Today, the people have spoken and the mandate has been given. We believe in your vision of growth, development and wealth creation for our people. We share in your passion to evolve a Rivers State that will reflect the stupendous wealth it’s endowed with through provision of quality healthcare, education, social and infrastructural developments.
We make no bones about our position that you are the best person to lift our dear State out of the firm grips of poverty and underdevelopment. We reaffirm our total confidence in your ability to salvage our State from the precipice and call on all well-meaning Rivers sons and daughters to unite with you as we begin the walk to our freedom.
We explicitly commend our leader, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, Honourable Minister of Transportation and DG Buhari-Osinbajo Presidential Campaign Organization for putting all machinery on ground to ensure a credible and fair primaries.
Congratulations once again, Sir!
