The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, said it was pleased with the state governor, Nyesom Wike for following the footstep of former governor Chibuike Amaechi in visiting the bereaved families in Omoku, ONELGA. Though the party pointed out that the governor’s visit to the area was coming a little too late, it added that “at least, it is not a crime for (Wike) to copy (Amaechi) who is naturally ahead of him.” The APC further alleged that governor Wike, employed the late kidnap kingpin, Don Waney to kill members of the opposition party. The APC said this in a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Chris Finebone and made available to newsmen in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.
The party also frowned at what it described as the “huge joke” governor Wike made during his visit to Omoku that the ‘APC in Rivers State has enlisted the support of supposed criminals he earlier declared wanted.’ The APC said “We have no reason to be worried when a weird character engages in an equally bizarre joke. “It is possible that governor Wike does not see the right picture each time he is in front of a mirror. If he does, then he will at least, acknowledge that he, and not the APC or Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, that believe in triumphing in electoral contests chiefly through spilling of blood. “We believe that Nigerians, including the respected Prof. Itsay Sagay who described Nyesom Wike as having climbed on dead bodies to become governor know that much. Need we stress that further?
