Ahead of the 2023 Rivers State governorship election, the governorship candidate of the Accord Party in Rivers Chief Dumo Lulu Briggs, has said that he has the capacity to grow the state economy that will contain everyone.
The Governor hopeful stated this at an event on Sunday 19 June tagged “An Evening with DLB; a Conversation on the business of Rivers State” organized to converse with Captains of Industries and Entrepreneurs on how to create a better business environment and harnessing the immense economic potentials in the State.
“the reason why you should vote for me is not because am a good man, nice man or I am a philanthropist. That doesn’t count at the end of the day. The reason why you should vote for me is that you see me as someone that has the capacity to grow the economy that will contain all of us. See me as someone that grow institutions to hold our operations.”
“We are going to address our public institutions and make sure that our education is key. It is easier to build strong children than repair broken men.”
“2023 shall be a defining moment in our history as a people and we are serious about forming the next government, we are serious about the business of getting Rivers State working again,” he said.
Chief Dumo Lulu Briggs while talking on forming an inclusive government if elected to power also lamented over the economic and infrastructural development in the State while comparing Rivers state to Lagos State, stating that Rivers state has what it takes to amount to Lagos State.
The evening took another turn with the cutting of cake to celebrate the Governorship candidate, Chief Dumo Lulu Briggs, who recently turned a year older last week Monday.
