Peterside prays for widows of Ido, promises to assist them


Rivers State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Dakuku Peterside, has described widows of Ido community in Asari-Toru Local Government Area as courageous and forward-looking women who have defied all odds to support a progressive party.
He prayed for them and pledged to do everything in his power to alleviate their burden.
Dakuku said widowhood is not a curse but an accident of life.
The APC candidate made the statement during the party’s ward rally in Asari-Toru Local Government Area.
He charged the widows to continue to live courageously, adding that “God is the husband of every widow, so you have nothing to fear because God is on your side”.
He also commended them for being supportive of APC, despite the challenge of everyday living.
Peterside later thanked the people of Ido, describing them as a good community for taking care of their widows.
Afterwards, he made presentations to the women and promised to do more in future.
Responding on behalf of the widows, Mrs Juliana Obutobo, expressed gratitude for the gifts and prayed God to continue to bless Peterside for remembering them. He described the APC candidate as a God-fearing person who is more likely to remember the poor and the vulnerable when he assumes office as governor of Rivers State.
For that reason and for the fact that Peterside is the first candidate to visit Ido, the women promised to deploy everything at their disposal for APC’s door-to-door campaign and to vote massively for Peterside and the party on election day.
They also promised to protect their votes on March 28 and April 11.
