APC Vows To Produce Rivers Gov In 2019
A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in Rivers State, Prof. Henry Arinze Ugboma, has said the party would produce the next governor in the state come 2019.
Ugboma who is chief medical director (CMD) of the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH), stated this while receiving defectors from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area, ONELGA (Omoku), on Saturday.
According to him, Governor Nyesom Wike had not shown commitment to development of the state.
Ugboma, an indigene of Ndoni in ONELGA, where a ex-Governor Peter Odili, also hails from, promised that the 2019 elections will be devoid of violence, killings and rigging.
The CMD said: “I am happy I am a member of the APC family. Something different is beginning to happen in ONELGA. The over 100 PDP members that have just joined APC in ONELGA, you will not regret the wise decision. About two years ago, I stood on this ground (the playground of Federal College of Education (FCE), Technical, Omoku) and I declared for the APC. I did not make a mistake joining the APC. Today, my story is different.
“Your stories shall also be different. Your lives shall change for the better. God shall use you to rewrite the stories of your families. You are not making a mistake by joining the APC. You have taken the golden steps to victory.”
