PDP Has Lost Popularity In Rivers State – Victor Fingesi



The governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party in Rivers State, Victor Fingesi has come out to say that the Peoples Democratic Party is now a minority in the state, despite being the party in government.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.

According to him, the party has lost popularity going by recent developments in the state and the failure of the government to deliver democratic dividends, but he can vow to make the people proud if elected.

He added that the major problem the state is battling with is poverty, and it is the reason there is an increased rate of crime and insecurity in Rivers.

His words, “The PDP is a minority in Rivers State. There is a silent majority in Rivers State that is just there.”

“Go to your villages, many of them are not members of a political party, but they are just there to vote. Their leaders will push them to vote here or there.”

“The population of Rivers State compared to the population of people who claim to be members of the PDP there are very insignificant.”

“But because we are a state that since 1999 voted PDP, most people think there is infrastructure but there is no infrastructure.”

“There will be no more poverty in Rivers State in the first two years of our administration. It sounds impossible and difficult for people to believe but the state has all it takes for everybody to be rich.”

“Being rich is not to have a billion naira in the account, being rich is to be very comfortable to live without stress and live where children can go to school freely.”

“The major problem we have is poverty. Poverty is the reason we are having an increased rate of crime and insecurity.”

“A state that is blessed with natural and human resources, generating N57.3 billion annually, yet having over 1,714,188 unemployed youths, 188,590 out-of-school teenagers (as recorded by the Nigeria Bureau of Statistics), clearly shows that something is not right. Obviously, that is leadership.”
