The Kengema Unity Forum has endorsed Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, for a second term.
The group stated that the endorsement was in appreciation of the quality projects and programmes executed by the state governor.
The group, on a solidarity visit to the Government House Port Harcourt on Monday, declared that they would work diligently for the re-election of Governor Wike in 2019.
Leader of Kengema Unity Forum (KUF), Honourable Sobomabo Jackreece, declared that the performance of the governor had endeared him to all development loving people of Rivers State.
He said that Wike, aside diligent execution of projects, has exhibited love for all sections of the state through political patronage.
"Come 2019, the KUF will work for the re-election of Governor Wike because he has used the mandate to improve the lives of the people.
"Our members across the state will work for the re-election of the Rivers State governor because we have seen his handiwork. We urge Governor Wike to continue to carry the KUF along in all appointments", Jackreece said.
Responding, Wike assured the leader and members of the Kengema Unity Forum that he would sustain the development projects being executed across the state.
Wike said that he has a covenant with the Rivers people to perform, noting that he will always keep his own side of the bargain.
His words: "The KUF supported us during the campaigns for 2015 and I have also reciprocated by ensuring execution of projects and appointments within available resources.
"I am happy that you have endorsed me for a second term. Be rest assured that I will continue to work hard to justify your trust. Projects like the Buguma Internal Roads, Degema Internal Roads, Land Reclamation, Abonnema Ring Road and Degema Zonal Hospital will be completed among other ongoing projects in Kalabari land."
He charged the leader and members of KUF to continue with their peaceful mobilisation for his re-election, noting that their efforts will promote the interest of the people.
