Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has once again expressed hope that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, will regain its lost glory at the federal level in 2019.
PDP, which was hitherto referred to as the largest party in Africa, was defeated in the 2015 presidential election by the All Progressives Congress, APC, after 16 years in power.
Addressing delegates of the PDP at the Rivers State Congress of the party at the Obi Wali Cultural Centre in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, Governor Wike said the reorganisation of the party will place it on a sound position to attain victory in 2019.
The governor assured the people of Rivers State that the party will continue to deliver on all fronts in line with the pledges contained in the New Rivers Development Blueprint.
He added, “This administration will showcase our superlative performance in the last one year between May 23 and May 29. The people will know firsthand the quality projects we have executed.”
