Port Harcourt — The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State, Siminialayi Fubara, says he will make Omoku a gas hub when elected as governor in the forthcoming general election.
Omoku in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni already plays host to the Nigerian Agip Oil Company, the Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited as well as other oil firms.
Fubara urged the people of ONELGA to deliver overwhelming votes for the PDP in the coming elections and be sure of enjoying the gains of being the gas hub of the state as well as experience sustained peace, economic empowerment and enhanced business opportunities.
The governorship candidate spoke at the Local Government Campaign flag-off rally of the Rivers State PDP at Felix Obuah Pavilion, Omoku Town in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area of Rivers State.
He recounted the successes of the Governor Nyesom Wike administration in the state, which, he said, he would reenact when elected, assuring of further development, particularly in ONELGA where, he said, the phase two of the Ahoada -Omoku Road will be completed to ease mobility in the area.
“What we stand for is good governance. Good governance is providing services. Good governance is making life easy, and that is what my principal has done for you and that is where I stand with you.
“Let me also add, after our road for accessibility, Omoku will be a gas hub. You know what it means for your city to be a gas hub. Businesses will come, investment come, employment problem will be over,” he stated.
Also speaking, Governor Wike explained that when Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni, Abua/Odual, Ahoada East, Ahoada West local Government Areas of the state experienced flooding last year, the state was abandoned to its fate.
Wike said the 2023 general election in the state will be a crucial moment that the electorate will use to decide against those who hate the state, saying that the election will be “a fight to finish”.
“That is how you know those who hate Rivers State, that is how you know those who love us. If you hate Rivers State, we will not give you our votes. We will only give our votes to those who love Rivers State.
“It is a fight to finish. Do not be afraid. We are going to win at the end of the day. You know that we have always won. We will continue to win. Success has always been with us. God has been with us. This time is not going to be different. God will continue to lead us.”
Also, the Rivers State deputy governor, Dr Ipalibo Harry-Banigo, who is Rivers West Senatorial District candidate, assured that if elected, he would jealously protest the interest of the state.
