The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers state will not be distracted by the recent comments of His Excellency, the Governor of Rivers State, Barrister Nyesom Wike, on the disqualification of the Governor of Edo state from participating in the APC governorship primaries in Edo state.
There is a revolution going on in the APC spearheaded by the National Chairman of the great Party, His Excellency Comrade Adams Oshiomhole. It is a known political philosophy that a collective effort cannot bring you to power and you turn around and abandon the system. It is unfortunate that the crisis in Edo state had been allowed to fester to the extent that 14 legislators of same Party that brought the Governor to power have not resumed for over one year after they were elected by their constituencies solely for the political interest of the Governor of Edo state His Excellency Mr. Godwin Obaseki. This has denied the people of their respective constituencies representation in the government of Edo state.
I am indeed confident that even the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) irrespective of the defection of the Edo state Governor will be weary of him. As for the All Progressives Congress, we are confident that as the system that produced him, we will successfully produce another APC governor during the next governorship election come September 19, 2020.
