He said Wike should be allowed to complete his eight years in office, disclosing that the body has endorsed Wike to continue his developmental work.

Nwanosike said: “Governor Nyesom Wike has created an enabling environment for effective grassroots participation in politics by fixing a date for the local government elections.

“Our leader, Governor Nyesom Wike, has redefined the People’s Democratic Party in the past years. With the ongoing development projects in the 23 local government areas of the state, Governor Wike has shown that he has managed our resources well.

“No one can stop Governor Wike from completing the good work God has called him to do in the state. We will support his second tenure. Wike will sweep all the votes in the 23 LGA and their wards.”
