Port Harcourt - The All Progressives Congress (APC) is concerned the National Convention of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) scheduled for Port Harcourt at a date yet to be announced would be a waste of Ricvers State taxpayers’ money.
The even had been scheduled for Wednesday in the capital Port Harcourt but has been stopped by the Federal High Court in Abuja amid the divisions in the opposition party.
“The APC is further worried that, as a lawyer, Gov. Nyesom Wike and other lawyers in the PDP are the ones shopping for all manner of conflicting court orders regarding their national convention. The sum total of their actions point to unfettered reign of impunity on August 17 and this is familiar territory for Gov. Nyesom Wike and his co-travellers,” said APC Rivers spokesman, Chris Finebone.
He said however, whenever the convention was eventually held, the likelihood of the event being declared a nullity loomed.

“However, the utmost concern to the APC is that the Rivers taxpayer is now made to bear the brunt of reviving the dying behemoth called PDP now lying in comatose in hospital and gasping for breath,” Finebone said.
He said they were worried considering PDP medical bills were “humongous” and Wike had elected himself to offset the bills with the funds of Rivers people running into billions of Naira.
“Sadly, states like Akwa Ibom, Delta, Bayelsa, Cross River and others have always acted the wise boys because their governors know that their peoples’ money should not be wasted on frivolities of ill-fated jamborees while Gov. Wike believes that it is obligatory for the Rivers taxpayer to bear the brunt of his inordinate lust for power.”
