Lawmaker hails APC Congress in Rivers

14 April 2014, 12:05

Port Harcourt - A member of the House of Representatives, Dakuku Peterside, (APC-Rivers) has expressed satisfaction with the successful conduct of the APC local government congress in Rivers.

Peterside, representing Andoni/Opobo/Nkoro Federal Constituency, told newsmen in Port Harcourt that the turnout of people was an indication of its acceptability.

He said the congresses held in Andoni and Opobo/ Nkoro Local Governments elected credible officials who would run the party’s affairs credibly.

"The congress held in Opobo/Nkoro Local Government was very successful, the people were well organised, very enthusiastic and at the end of the day, officers were elected.

"We believe that with permanent structures in place, it will give the party direction and deepen its presence in the local government area,’’ he said.

Peterside said with the conclusion of the local government congress, the party was now prepared for the general election.

"We have done our research and I can tell you that empirical evidence that we have indication that APC will win all elections in Opobo/Nkoro Local Government."
