“Show me one new thing to indicate that Rivers people have benefited from the 2.1 million votes given to President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2011 elections.
"I was voted into office to defend the interests of Rivers people and I will continue to defend the interests of Rivers people. The Bonny-Bodo federal road has been abandoned... if you compare Lagos international airport, Kano, Benin, Enugu and others, you will understand that ours is backward. But why Rivers State?
"I can see that we don’t have federal support, and that is why I said, we can only defend our interests as Rivers people through our votes... We will embark on house to house campaign to tell our people the need for them to fight for their interests."
The governor emphatically stressed that 2015 will not be like 2011 in Nigeria!
