Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, on Wednesday described the governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state, Dr. Dakuku Peterside, as a dependable, capable and vibrant young man with the required mental and physical attributes to drive any government anywhere in the world.
The governor, who gave the commendation while presenting Peterside to the people of Ikwerre Local Government Area in Isiokpo, during a rally, described the governorship hopeful as a gift to Rivers State, adding that a people can only make progress if they choose their leaders carefully.
He said: “When you compare the difference between Peterside and the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr Nyesom Wike, you can see that Peterside is trust-worthy, dedicated, resourceful, dynamic and young.
“I brought two of them up and I know them very well. Wike, our small friend, has acquired expensive tastes and he has houses in every part of the world. So, he is not a man you can trust with your money because he worked with us. President Goodluck Jonathan does not prosecute thieves around him if not, I would have forwarded documents on Wike but doing that will amount to mere waste of time”.
