Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party
(PDP) in Rivers State does not deserve the votes of the electorate in Rivers
South West Senatorial Zone in the rerun State and National Assembly elections
scheduled for Saturday.
This is according to the rival All Progressives Congress
APC appealed to voters in the region to “repay” PDP and
Governor Nyesom Wike for their atrocities against the zone by massively
rejecting PDP candidates.
“Governor Wike and PDP have turned Rivers South West Senatorial
District into a place of mourning where innocent citizens are slaughtered and
burnt like goats on daily basis,” Rivers APC Chairman, Davies Ikanya, said.
In true campaign mode, Ikanya accused Wike of frustrating
projects in the region.

“Wike’s hatred for Rivers South West Senatorial District
has never been hidden, as it was the same Wike who frustrated all the plans to
construct the Trans-Kalabari Road,” Ikanya said.
He claimed Wike and PDP collaborated with the
administration of former president, Goodluck Jonathan, to cede the Rivers State
oil wells in the Kalabari Kingdom to Bayelsa State.
“As if that was not enough, Wike, after imposing himself
as governor, has within a short time turned the South West into a killing
field,” said Ikanya.
“We appeal to the good people of Rivers South
West Senatorial Zone to demonstrate their rejection of Wike and PDP by
overwhelmingly voting for APC candidates during Saturday’s rerun elections.”
