The All Progressives Congress APC in Rivers state has explained its adoption of the African Action Congress AAC, saying having been temporarily shut out of the elections in the state, its dreams would find tangible expressions in the AAC.
Director, Strategic Communications of the APC Campaign Council in Rivers, Prince Tonye T.J.T Princewill who stated this in a statement Thursday night added that the APC is interested in getting Gov. Nyesom Wike out of the way.
“Even though I can not hide my disappointment at the non-inclusion of APC Rivers state candidates on the ballot come Saturday, I too must approve the decision reached by our leadership to support Sowore’s AAC in our upcoming Governorship election. With the way things are hot in Rivers state, a double AC may just be what we need.
“Seriously though, “Wike must go” and “Power must rotate”, were what attracted me to this cause. It was not candidate specific then and it is not candidate specific now. Tonye Cole and the other APC candidates will still have their day in court. The apex court has not yet spoken and since we’re advised not to speak while eating, Rivers state without Wike will allow the judges to speak even more freely”, he said.
According to him, “the injustice of an exclusion like this will be written about for years to come and the actors and the role each one played will be dissected by law professionals and the rest of us, the world over. It’s nothing short of a disgrace. Justice for me is the annulling of this election, I still stand by that. But since justice has been denied us for far too long, we have opted to do what is available to us now; Vote out Wike. For as long as we all await justice, let us do it with a different person sitting in Brick House.
“That is where Biokpo Awara comes in. I urge all those who love us to vote for him and all those who despise Wike’s politics to do same. I must advise you all to do so peacefully please. Election Violence is not our friend. He is Wike’s brother. And this Saturday, both Wike and his brother will meet their match, when the security agencies ensure your votes count, free from harassment and free from intimidation,” he added.
