If they slap you, slap them, Oyegun tells Rivers APC supporters

09 December 2016, 11:02

Abuja - Ahead of Saturday’s legislative rerun in Rivers State, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has urged members of his party to retaliate whatever action they get from loyalists of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Odigie-Oyegun, who spoke at the mega rally of the APC at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt on Thursday, described the rerun as “the beginning of a rescue mission” and encouraged the people not to be intimidated.

He said, “I am glad with what I am hearing here today; very glad. If they push you, push them back. If they slap you, slap them back.”

He expressed his satisfaction with the turnout at the rally, and urged the people to head to the polling units in droves on Saturday.

Odigie-Oyegun said,“I am very pleased with the turnout here today. It shows you are truly ready. As you can see, we came in force. The whole federal might is here. You have the governors of this nation here today.”

He added, “We are sending one message, and that message is clear. It is that we respect you the people of Rivers State. We respect the courage of our members in this state. We want to let you know that we have heard your cry; we have seen your anguish; enough is enough. This is the beginning of a rescue mission.
