Jonathan's name crops up in Rivers campaigns

14 March 2016, 20:46

Abuja - The crusade to attract voters ahead of the Rivers State and National Assembly polls has intensified with the All Progressives Congress urging the public to vote in protest of ongoing problems in the region.

The voters have also been urged to vote for APC in protest of the immediate past President Dr Goodluck Jonathan’s alleged decision to “keep the Ogoni clean-up document duly approved by local and international stakeholders in his locker until he left office last May."

“(They must) to punish Chief (Governor Nyesom) Wike and PDP for plotting to kill the Ogoni clean-up exercise and for denying the zone the opportunity to produce the incumbent Governor of Rivers State,” said APC Rivers Chairman, Davies Ikanya.

Ikanya blamed Wike’s administration for the prevailing violence in the state.

“To add salt to injury, Wike in his sinister plot against Rivers South East has turned the Zone into a battle field between the Army and criminals, thereby brutally cutting short the lives of innocent and hapless souls in Rivers South East. Wike and PDP, therefore, do not deserve a single vote from Rivers South East voters on Saturday.”

Elections are scheduled for Saturday.
