Governor Wike has on Tuesday said APC is gone, Ejesgist.ng reports
The governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has stated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not receive any support from the electorate in Rivers in the upcoming general elections in 2023 since the party’s spirit and strength have left, leaving the corpse.
Wike spoke on Tuesday at the Mgbuodohia Community Primary School Premises, which served as the site of the Mgbuodohia Road’s official groundbreaking in Rumuolumene Town of the Obio-Akpor Local Government Area (LGA), Ejesgist.ng reports.
Governor Wike specifically referred to Chief Anele Orobule, a fervent supporter of the former governor Rotimi Amaechi, who supposedly supported the APC to the point of being shamed “because of failed promises.”
He urged the people of Rivers State to be wary of the APC governorship candidate, Tonye Cole, who he said is being fronted by Amaechi because they do not mean well for the state.
The governor urged the Rivers State PDP governorship candidate, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, to consider constructing a bridge to link Rumuolumeni to Eagle Island in Port Harcourt if he eventually assumes office later this year.
