Rivers PDP Builds Momentum Ahead of Saturday’s Governorship Election

Even though the opposition parties have continued to sling mud and make accusations against the PDP in Rivers, the state’s leading party has maintained that they are in high spirits and continue to build momentum, having been assured to ace the race in the March 18 governorship and state assembly elections, Ibim Semenitari writes.

Despite the negative press, the PDP has been able to stay ahead of its 16 other competitors, having gained the support of a number of influential leaders in the state and having a strong grassroots presence. Furthermore, the PDP has been organizing regular campaign events and engaging with local communities, which has helped to keep them in the lead.

Siminalayi Fubara, the governorship candidate of the Rivers Democratic Party, has continued to attract several endorsements from different organizations, including some rival parties collapsing their structure to endorse him as the worthy man for the Rivers state top job.

This is largely due to his long track record of advocating for the betterment of Rivers state, his political ideology which resonates with the people of the state, and his strong leadership skills. He has been able to convince people from different backgrounds and political affiliations that he is the right person to lead Rivers state.

Some of the organizations that have endorsed Fubara are Rivers Professionals (RivPro), Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Religious Bodies, Leadership of the Labour Party in Rivers, and the list of endorsement badges are endless.

These endorsements are significant for Fubara because they demonstrate that he has the support of organizations from different sectors of the state. This indicates that he is a reliable and trustworthy candidate and will bring positive change to Rivers State.

The opposition can already smell the loss ahead of Saturday’s election and has started to cry blue murder! The latest of their finger-pointing is accusing, without evidence, the ruling PDP of conniving with INEC and security agencies to rig the election In Rivers.

The PDP has consistently followed the rules and regulations of the electoral process, and there is no evidence to suggest that they have been involved in any impropriety. In addition, INEC and security agencies have been diligent in ensuring the election is fair and free from any manipulation.

The tantrums notwithstanding, PDP’s Siminalayi Fubara remains formidable as he takes stock of his diligent work thus far, to deliver him victory, as several independent election polls and political pundits have predicted.

His campaign strategy of focusing on critical issues such as health care, education, and employment has resonated with the electorate and he has been able to gain widespread support. His record of delivering practical solutions to local issues has also endeared him to many voters and he is seen as a strong and capable leader.

This is evidenced by the fact that he has had a consistent lead in the polls and received endorsements from various stakeholders, including local and national organizations. The success of his campaign can also be attributed to his strong communication skills and his ability to connect with voters on a personal level.
