Rivers State PDP governorship Candidate, Barrister Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that the State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi abandoned the APC Presidential Campaign when it dawned on him that the PDP has overrun his party in the state.
He said that whether Amaechi spends the rest of the campaign period in Rivers State, the APC would be roundly defeated in all the 23 local government areas in the state.
A statement signed by Simeon Nwakaudu, Special Assistant (Media), noted this in his address at the PDP Ahoada East LGA Governorship rally during the week. Barrister Wike said: “Whether outgoing governor Amaechi sleeps in Rivers State till election, the APC will be roundly defeated in all local governments of the state.
“Amaechi abandoned his principal and embattled APC Presidential Candidate to run back to salvage his party. But, there is nothing Amaechi can do for his boy and the APC. It is PDP all the way. The people of Rivers State belong to PDP and no matter the amount of stolen funds Amaechi spends, PDP will win Rivers State”.
