In the spirit of the EID-AL-ADHA celebration by Muslim faithfuls all over the Nation, on Monday, 11th July, 2022, the Accord Governorship candidate in Rivers State, Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs,
visited the Sarikin Hausawa, Rivers State, Alhaji Issa Madaki’s palace, at Dline, Port Harcourt, to celebrate Salah with the Hausa community.
A statement by Mr. Iyene Douglas, State Publicity Secretary, Rivers Accord, issued on 12/7/2022, disclosed that, receiving their guest, the spokesperson of the community, Alh. Haliu Uman, thanked Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs, for finding the time to come and counting them worthy of such honor.
He then noted in clear terms that, with the New Electoral act, they now know that their votes will count this time, and as such they will not consider party but will prioritize personality; that personality that will always put people first, irrespective of tribe or religion.
According to the spokesperson, it is in that resolve they have also chosen to go out to tell their people that they have seen a candidate that has the character they seek, and that they will convince people to cast their votes for him at the 2023 Governorship election, noting that he is part of them as they are part of him.
While responding, the Accord Governorship candidate, Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs stated that his visit to the Hausa community was propelled by his love for the people, believing that every Rivers resident is an indigene of Rivers State and none should be so seen as a non-indigene.
According to him, he has come to celebrate with his family, the Hausa community, in this season of celebration. On how ready and prepared the party is, Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs assured the Hausa community that the Party isn’t a third force, but stands as the only solution to the predicaments of Rivers State.
He added that, the WE agenda, putting the PEOPLE first initiative has so far become the gospel of salvation that the people of Rivers State has come to embrace, and surely the party is ready to go for it, after all, her aim is for the progress and success of Rivers PEOPLE.
The State Publicity Secretary Mr Iyene Douglas described the outcome of the visit as, “another great favour received in the sight of men (the Hausa community) as they have ab initio received favour in the sight of God. Because we put PEOPLE first, the PEOPLE have continued to put us first.
Accord! Oneness and Progress!
Oneness and Progress! In One Accord!
