The six Peoples Dem­ocratic Party (PDP) members in the Rivers State House of Assembly opposed to Governor Rotimi Amaechi, have thrown their weight behind President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term ambition.

The lawmakers, who are led by Ev­ans Bapakaye Bipi represent­ing Ogu/Bolo Constituency, include Martin Amaewhule represent­ing Obio/Akpor Constituency I, Michael Okechukwu Chinda representing Obio/Akpor Con­stuency II.

Others are Victor Ihunwo representing Port-Harcourt Constituency III, Kelechi Nwogu representing Omuma Constituency and Ibani Ikuiyi representing Andoni Constitu­ency.

A statement issued in Port Harcourt, the state capital yesterday and signed by the six lawmakers, also en­dorsed the Minister of State for Education, Nyesom Wike, as the PDP flag-bearer in the 2015 governorship election in the state.

According to them, their decision to endorse the president’s re-election bid was informed by his transfor­mation agenda, which they said was fast-tracking development in the country.

The statement read in part: “The transformation agenda of the Jonathan administration has been felt in critical sectors of the economy, such as power, aviation, oil and gas, education, agriculture, trade and invest­ment, health and tourism.

“The transformation agenda has also led to the development of key infrastructure, particu­larly roads, as well as economic empowerment of citizens and the improvement of the well-being of Nigerians.

“If the Jonathan administra­tion could achieve these in less than four years, we believe that if given a second term, it would achieve more and place Nigeria in a better position among the comity of nations”.

The lawmakers ex­plained that their support for Wike’s governor­ship ambition in 2015 was borne out of his achievements in the educa­tion sector in the country, and his leadership qualities.

They assured the minister that he would get their support any time he decides to formally declare his ambition to run in the Rivers State governorship race.
