The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike on the Distinguished Award in Infrastructure Delivery recently conferred on him by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The party in a statement on Saturday evening said Wike is most deserving of the award and has demonstrated the ability of the PDP to meet the needs of people.
The PDP statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba also described Governor Wike as a committed member of the party and hailed him as ‘Mr.Project.’
Naija News recalls President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday honoured Wike and 43 others including a former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, and other PDP Governors with service awards.
People who are eligible for the award must be living public officials or private citizens excelling consistently in a given sphere of influence, in good character standing, and must also be at the forefront of service and innovation.
Reacting to the development, Ologunagba said the award conferred on Wike and some other Governors of the party is due to their execution of people-oriented projects as contained in the PDP manifesto.
He added that Nigerians are assured of such developments on a national scale if they return the party to power in 2023.
He ended by urging Wike to continue to do more.
The full statement reads: “The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) congratulates Rivers State Governor, H.E Nyesom Wike on his conferment of the Distinguished Award in Infrastructure Delivery at the Nigeria Excellence in Public Service Award, in recognition of his exceptional accomplishments on infrastructure in line with the manifesto of the PDP.
“This national Award on this outstanding PDP Governor is an admission by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government of exceptional development strides that can only be conceptualized, driven and executed under the policy thrust and manifesto of the PDP.
“Governor Wike, as a committed member of the PDP has been executing legacy projects alongside other governors elected on the platform of our Party in line with the policies and programmes of the PDP arising from the deep thoughts and analysis of the needs of the people.
“PDP governors are outstanding in turning their States into “Oases of Development” through delivery of landmark people-oriented infrastructural projects. This informs why Nigerians across board are rallying with the PDP knowing that with a PDP Federal Government by May 29, 2023, Nigeria will become an “Ocean of Development”.
“The PDP applauds Governor Wike and urges him to see the Award as a call to do more in the service of our dear fatherland and humanity.
“Congratulations Mr. Project!”
