Rivers At 50: Rivers PDP Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah Advocates Love Among Rivers People

As Rivers State celebrates 50 years in existence, the State Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro. Felix Obuah has called on all Rivers people to love one another irrespective of religion, social status, beliefs and political affiliations.

Bro. Obuah said what is paramount at the moment is gratitude to God, whose Grace, Goodness and Mercies had taken the State to an enviable height.

The PDP Chairman enjoined the people to use the 50th anniversary to demonstrate love, peace, oneness and justice, and patriotism, stressing that through this, Rivers State will wax stronger and truly take its rightful place as the Treasure Base of the Nation which other States would emulate.

In his words, “as the Jubilee Governor, Wike has brought peace, development and unity amongst Rivers people.  He is a unifying factor and a bridge builder. 

“I urge every Rivers man and woman to pull down every barrier and limitations and give Mr. Project all the support he needs to take the State to greater levels”.

On whether Rivers State, in 50 years, has actualized the vision of her founding fathers, Bro. Obuah said although the State is not there yet, but with Wike, he is optimistic that the dreams of the founding fathers of the State would be achieved.

According to the PDP Chairman, Governor Wike is building legacies that will not only compete favourably with infrastructures put in place by Diette-Spiff and Dr. Peter Odili, but those that will stand the test of time and would at the end of the day, surpass what had been on ground.

Bro. Obuah, while appealing for unity of purpose, urged Rivers people to embrace the ideals of patriotism, selflessness and total dedication to the development of the State, stressing that these traits were quintessential for actualizing the Rivers Dream, adding that the efforts of past and present leaders of the State have clearly proved that there is unity in diversity. “This, we all need to sustain as a people”, Obuah emphasized.

He commended the initiative of honouring heroes and eminent Rivers leaders both present and past, particularly those who have made significant contributions towards promoting national unity and development in the State.

The PDP Chairman said the awards are not mere symbol of recognition but avenues to encourage the younger generation towards patriotism and love of the State.

“Rivers people should be passionate in their advocacy for unity, love and neighborliness.  They should be patriotic and champion ideals that would contribute to the development of the State”, Obuah advised.
