APC banks on divine intervention in Rivers poll

29 December 2014, 13:26Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is hopeful divine intervention would enable the party retain power in the state in next year’s governorship election.

Dr Dakuku Adol Peterside, will represent the party in the eagerly-anticipated poll to succeed Chibuike Amaechi.

“We have no doubts at all that while we play our own part as humans, Almighty God himself will lead the fight for Dr Peterside’s emergence as the next Governor of our dear Rivers State,” Rivers APC Chairman, Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, said in a statement from Port Harcourt.

“What Dr Peterside did on Sunday, December 21, by dedicating his gubernatorial candidature at the Dr. Obi Wali International Conference Centre in Port Harcourt to God Almighty in the midst of top clergymen, politicians and other stakeholders is unprecedented in the annals of electioneering campaigns in Nigeria. It is a unique demonstration of his strong belief in God’s ability to fight for him,” he added.

Dakuku claimed the dedication was already “working wonders” as could be seen in the “huge success recorded during the official flag-off of APC’s State-wide governorship campaign the next day at Port Harcourt.”

“This election is now simply between the Devil and Almighty God, who is leading APC’s campaign. The choice between the good people of Rivers State is between light and darkness. It is because of the seriousness we attach to the emancipation and development of Rivers State that we are presenting the very best in the person of Dr Dakuku Peterside to continue the great works which our visionary leader, Chibuike Amaechi, will stop in 2015,” he added.
