According to her “The people have said clearly what they want and God has decreed it also.
Wike is a threat to the nation’s democracy. He is not the type of governor Rivers people want for a second term. He will go down in history as a governor that concentrated on white elephant projects, exacerbation of the security crisis and withdrawing financial aide to Rivers State students abroad” she opined.

She said such candidate is no other person than Tonye Cole, stressing that “he has character and integrity . He will pay attention to people with disabilities, embark on general reforms, revolutionize social infrastructure, particularly roads, basic health care, potable water, functional educational system and healthy ecosystem”
“The business man and governorship hopeful has the decency to live above board. He will respect the autonomy of the Rivers State House of Assembly, make state’s development more inclusive and put the poor first. He will also focus on education, the economy, poverty reduction and empowerment ”
