Rivers State PDP Governorship Candidate, Barrister Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that the party has decided to make a woman the deputy governor for 2015.
The candidate made the announcement at Omagwa, Ikwerre LGA on Christmas Day where he celebrated the Christian festival with the people of the area.
He said that the female deputy governorship candidate will be unveiled by the Party by Tuesday next week.
He said: “We are getting women involved in decision making of the state. The campaign is now for women to take to the next level. We have gone beyond the stage of just sharing wrapper to women as empowerment. This is a new era in Rivers State.
“The faith of Rivers people does not lie in the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC. We are for the PDP all the way”.
He urged the people to remain vigilant as the APC was sewing fake police uniforms in an attempt to rig the 2015 election.
Barrister Wike charged the people to resist any attempt to compromise the electoral process by the APC.
A PDP chieftain in Ikwerre LGA, Ernest Wosu regretted that Amaechi failed the people, hence the decision to support a politician with pedigree.
The celebration was marked by cutting of the Christmas Cake and choral rendition.
The event attracted thousands of Ikwerre people.
