Rivers State Accord Party Gubernatorial Candidate in the forthcoming 2023 election, Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs has spoken of his capacity and readiness to win the election.
Lulu-Briggs believes that the state governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike will vote for him in the March 11 election, adding that he will get over 90 per cent of the votes in Wike’s LGA, Obio/Akpor.
Dumo stated this during a road show and commissioning of the Obio/Akpor Accord Party Secretariat, located along Eliozu-Rumuokoro Road, Port Harcourt.
At Obio/Akpor during his campaign, he said “I want to thank my wonderful brothers from the most powerful local government in Rivers State. You are not only the most populous local government area in Rivers State, but this local government is also the local government of the current governor of Rivers State.
“So this local government is a very important local government and I’m glad you have two of your industrious sons and a very vibrant daughter contesting for elections under our platform, Accord.
“You know the beautiful thing about this election we are running; it’s an election where votes shall count and all the people know that at this time in Rivers State, there is no better candidate than Dumo Lulu-Briggs, they know.
“Growing up as a young man, my father always says to me, that the hour shall find the man and this hour, Rivers State has found me. That is why I continue to ask all of us that even in our campaigns, we should be mindful of the language that we employ, we don’t want to create irreconcilable differences because we have humongous task ahead of us.
“Rivers State is a great state and we want to move our people from poverty into prosperity, so we shall have no time for quarrels. We have the heart to carry everybody along and they all know it. Something tells me that, even on Election Day, the current governor of this state shall cast his vote for me, because he knows that I have a pure heart and a fantastic head.
“He knows that my head can expand the economy to accommodate all of us, he knows, and he knows that I have the disposition to spread opportunities everywhere and that I shall bear no grudge no matter what, that we shall make sure that we provide equal opportunities for every rivers man, woman and child and we shall do that so that the corresponding expectations of responsibility from all is not undeserved.
“So I know that on Election Day, even your governor knows that Dumo Lulu Briggs is the man for this time. So when I say that I shall get over 90 per cent of the votes in Obio Akpor, I’m saying that because I know that even the strong man himself on that day shall vote for me.
“You know the governor is a strong man; there is no doubt about it. You can take everything away from him, but you would not take that one away from him, he is a strong man. He is a strong man of Nigerian politics, but he knows that this is one man who has no godfather except God the father and because God the father is also his own father, on Election Day, his father will tell him that as one of my children, go and vote for my son, Dumo Lulu Briggs.”
