"Rivers is PDP state." No, it's not - APC fires back

The Rivers State chapter Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has berated former guber nominee of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dakuku Peterside and minister of Transport, Chibuike Amaechi over an alleged plot to impeach governor Nyesom Wike.

PDP Publicity secretary Samuel Nwanosike in a statement released on Monday, said:

“Dakuku Peterside should know that the governor cannot be impeached because in the state House of Assembly, the PDP is in the majority. The issue of the governor’s regime coming to an end cannot come up.

“Governor Wike is using the resources at his disposal to develop the state and that is why he will continue to enjoy the support of the people. They can try as much as they can, they cannot do anything to Governor Wike.

“Rivers State is PDP. We have got up to the Supreme Court and we won. So, to say that Wike’s administration will soon come to an end does not make any meaning to us.”

However, in response to the statement, Rivers APC Publicity secretary Chris Finebone has equally released a statement.

His words:

“Rivers State is not PDP. People were saying Nigeria was PDP, until APC won (presidential elections). It is sheer empty talk to say that Rivers State is PDP. Rivers belongs to the APC and will remain APC.”
