APC vows to bury PDP in Rivers

08 December 2014, 13:52Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State rallied its supporters to participate in next year’s elections and ensure victory for governorship hopeful, Dr Dakuku Peterside.

The opposition, in a statement issued in Port Harcourt by State Chairman, Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, advised the “crisis-ridden” People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to “prepare for thorough beating” in the 2015 governorship election.

“I congratulate our delegates that saw to the election of this great mind (Peterside) to carry our banner in our resolve to salvage Rivers State and our people from selfish politicians whose stock-in-trade is to loot our common patrimony and initiate our people into occult societies alien to our culture and belief as God-fearing State,” Ikanya said.

“I urge all and sundry to obtain their Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs) to ensure that we collectively punish and bury PDP formally next February. I congratulate Dr Peterside on his emergence and wish to assure him that we shall work day and night to ensure a landslide victory for him and our great party during the 2015 polls.”

Ikanya commended Peterside for setting out his vision for Rivers State immediately after his emergence as the party’s consensus candidate for the
2015 governorship election.

“We are happy about our great candidate’s promise to provide a leadership that will accelerate the actualisation of a greater Rivers dream of improved middle class, first class safe environment, equal and more socio-economic opportunities and create a greater sense of community, a Rivers State that will be the pride of Africa,” he said.

“We also wish to commend his humility in extending a hand of fellowship to Most Distinguished Senator Magnus Abe and Engr. Tele Ikuru, our amiable Deputy Governor, who are also very qualified to be our flag-bearer in their own rights but who, as good party men, have graciously accepted the party’s decision in the greater interest of our dear State. We are convinced with all hands on deck, victory is assured,” Ikanya added.
