Rivers State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) is alleging that the Peoples’ Democratic Party Governorship candidate in the state, and a former minister of education, Nyesom Wike has entered an agreement with Patience Jonathan, Nigeria’s first lady to pay her one billion Naira monthly if he (Wike) becomes governor of Rivers State.

“This planned and unacceptable rape of Rivers State coffers, which was revealed to us by a patriotic Rivers State citizen, has made us even more resolved to prevent the emergence of a PDP Government in our dear State. As a result, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has cut short its presidential victory celebration to step up its rescue mission to salvage the State from the misfortune that will befall her should PDP win the April 11th gubernatorial election,” Rivers APC Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, said in a statement issued Thursday in Port Harcourt.

Ikeanya said that while the APC in Rivers State remains grateful to God and the Nigerian electorate for the party’s victory in last weekend’s presidential and National Assembly elections, the party in the state, he said cannot continue to celebrate and forget the great danger facing Rivers people should the evil that PDP entails for Rivers and her people come to pass.

“We have therefore decided to move full blast with our Rivers Rescue Mission campaign designed to ensure the election of APC governorship candidate, Dr. Dakuku Peterside, and 31 APC candidates for the State House of Assembly. If this task is not accomplished, Rivers is doomed since the main agenda of PDP is to promote violence in the State and ensure that our oil wells remain ceded to Bayelsa, Akwa Ibom and Abia states,” Ikanya said.

He added that “Apart from this evil agenda against the future of the State, if we vote for Chief Wike and PDP our State will be doomed as his candidature does not augur well for us. Chief Wike once stated that why he is fighting Gov. Chibuike Amaechi is that Gov. Amaechi made Rivers State to be in the opposition against the government at the centre. Now that we have an APC Government at the centre, Chief Wike should ensure that we have an APC Government in Rivers State to avoid having a government that will be in opposition to the APC Government at the centre.”
