Former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman in Rivers State, Bro. Felix Amaechi Obuah has called on the people of Ogba/ Egbema/Ndoni Local Government area and Orashi region of the state, to support Prof. Ngozi Ordu who he said is an elder sister and qualified person for the position of Deputy Governor of Rivers State under the PDP.
It will be recalled that Bro. Felix Obuah who is popularly known as Go Round had aspired to be the candidate of the party but had to withdraw in the last minute owing to what most political watchers believed to be his desire to respect the wish of the party which later nominated Senibo Sim Fubara as the candidate of the party.
Bro. Obuah who met with the Deputy Governorship candidate said he trusts her to be a good deputy to the Governorship candidate.
He used the opportunity to appeal to the people of the LGA and the Orashi region to support her.
He said since it wasn’t possible for him to make it to the Brick House, they should all support her to make it there alongside the candidate of the party Sim Fubara whom the former Chairman of the Rivers Waste Management Agency RIWAMA described as a sellable candidate who will build on the enviable legacy of the state Governor Barr. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.
Harcourt, today our sister who is very qualified is on the verge of going there.
I will support her. My interest is the peace and prosperity of our area” he said
Prof Ngozi Ordu was former Commissioner of Education in Rivers State during the era of Celestine Omehia.
She was a Senior Lecturer of Food Microbiology & Public Health in the Department of Microbiology, Faculty of Biological Sciences, College of Natural & Applied Sciences.
She obtained her first degree in Microbiology from Paisley College of Technology, Renfrewshire, Scotland.
