The APC leader continued by saying that the people of Rivers are aware of their true leaders, those who have their best interests at heart rather than those who are using the current economic climate to their benefit.

According to Naija News, Peterside made this statement while addressing at a rally in Opobo, the administrative center for the Opobo/Nkoro Local Government Area.

Wike cannot affect how the residents of the state would cast their ballots in the elections of 2023, according to the former Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).

The APC leader said that Rivers’ residents could now see through Wike’s antics and claimed that the previous seven years had been among the worst in the history of Rivers due to “leadership driven by selfish interest and uncontrolled ego.”

He added:

“Opobo/Nkoro people are one of the most politically enlightened stocks in Rivers State and no one can deceive us with a Greek gift. Governor Wike had the opportunity of developing Opobo-Nkoro in the past 7 years but did not do it. He preferred to fret away our resources junketing abroad searching for personal relevance that will not add value to Rivers state and her people.

“We will remind our people how much Wike and his cohorts failed them and why we cannot continue in that trajectory. Nigerians are unanimous that the next election will be about character, competence and service delivery. It will not be about ethnicity. Opobo- Nkoro people know that a competent governor with a character they would be proud of would be superior to brandishing ethnic sentiment.”

The Opobo and Nkoro ethnic groups were among Rivers’ most politically astute, according to Peterside. He stated that because of this, people could not be duped or subjected to extortion using any Greek gift.

He said:

“Rivers people know who their true leaders are; not those who presently take advantage of the harsh economic situation to hoodwink and turn them into articles of political and financial merchandise.

“There is no doubt that the last seven remain the worst in Rivers’ history. The ordinary Rivers man and woman were left out of governance while those in authority enriched themselves, appropriated the people’s commonwealth and shamelessly brandished even that which they stole, before the people. Rivers people never had it this bad.”
