A coalition of twelve men who previously served as Local Government Coordinators for the Grassroots Development Initiative (GDI), a key political pressure group instrumental in Wike’s ascent to the Rivers State governorship in 2015, is the latest to align with the Rivers governor.

The coordinators represent various local government areas including Ogu/Bolo, Port Harcourt City, Opobo/Nkoro, Gokana, Bonny, Ahoada West, Ahoada East, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni, Oyigbo, Asari-Toru, Akuku-Toru, and Obio/Akpor, where Wike hails from.

The former caretaker chairman of Obio/Akpor LGA, Onunwo, emphasized that their decision to support Fubara stemmed from freely giving him their votes and mandate, a choice upheld by the Supreme Court.

He expressed confidence in the success of the current administration’s policies and programs, as well as the dedication and hard work of the former GDI coordinators.

Onunwo stated, “We want the public, Rivers people, and all Nigerians to know that GDI is the group founded by the former governor and now Federal Capital Territory Minister, Chief Nyesom Wike. That group brought him to power in 2015 and supported his ambition in 2019. That group is his strength.”

“Today, Rivers’ interest is to protect our votes that brought in Sir Siminalayi Fubara, Executive Governor of Rivers State, in the most credible, fair, and violence-free election. We have come to join millions of Rivers women, youths, elders, and other well-meaning people who insist that we must protect our votes to sustain democracy. Our concern is that we voted for PDP and Sir Siminalayi Fubara, and we must protect that mandate with all we have.”

Additionally, he issued a warning to those opposing Government House Chief of Staff Dr. Edison Ehie, cautioning them to reconsider or face the wrath of Rivers’ women, youths, and elders.
