The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reiterated that the party is united, cohesive and ever ready to play its expected pivotal role in reshaping the politics of Nigeria come 2019 despite obstacles posed on her way by some detractors.

The party said this while reacting to some alleged misguided insinuations in some quarters about a crack in the party because of two different events organised same day, February 10, 2018 by party members in different locations of the state.

The party clarified that the two events that took place in Rivers State last Saturday involving party members though significant were organised for two different purposes.

The event of Port Harcourt was to entertain friends of the party, to pave way for some PDP bigwigs who are looking for soft-landing to join the party and save their necks knowing the woes that awaits them come 2019 and principally to thank God for the victories he granted the party during the last rerun elections in the state against all odds.

On the other hand, the event in Bori, the headquarters of the Ogoni land was held in continuation of the rebuilding and strengthening of the party ahead of 2019 general elections and primarily to receive thousands of PDP members that defected to APC.

The party said that these clarifications became imperative to stop further disparaging of the party leadership and misinformation being peddled by some mischievous elements aimed at destabilising the party.

These clarifications were contained in a press statement circulated on Monday in Port Harcourt by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, Media Consultant to Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, the State Chairman of Rivers APC.

The statement further appreciated some of the party faithful and friends that attended both events at Bori and Port Harcourt and commended them for their positive comments but reiterated: “We don’t have any crack in the party as erroneously stated by some of the visitors,” adding: “In short, the party is now more repositioned to achieve her aim for 2019 general elections which is mainly to root out the current evil administration in the state under the watch of Chief Nyesom Wike.”

The party noted that no matter the challenges and misinformation being peddled by some of those that wish the party evil, it will not be intimidated or influenced not to ensure power change come 2019 in the state.

“We know the current strategy of Governor Nyesom Wike which is aimed at weakening and destabilising the party to enable him gain an easy ride to the Brick House but we will like to reassure him that his plots have failed even before it was hatched. The party current moves to free the State from the shackles of misguided administration, and to rotate power from upland to the riverine areas of the state is a task that must be achieved no matter the odds.

“In this regard, the party commended and congratulated the elders, political leaders and religious leaders of Ikwerre extraction for accepting the faith that it will be unfair not support the move to shift or rather rotate power from the upland to riverine section of the state after two of their sons have governed the State for twelve good years.”

It stated that with Wike completing his draconian rule come 2019, the upland area of the State may have governed the State for 20 years (Dr. Odili – 8 years, Amaechi – 8 years and Wike – 4 years) without anybody from the riverine area thirsting power as the governor of the state since its creation.

The party said that move to correct this evil act is the crime that Amaechi has committed against some uninformed commentators about the politics of Rivers State. The party maintained that it will pursue this goal that will address the injustice meted against the riverine area of the state no matter all the plots to frustrate it.

It promised to cure Wike of the terminal disease affecting him (Amaechiphobia) that makes him stressful and gives him nightmare by formally dislodging him from the government House come 2019.

The party urged all party faithful to keep faith with the party under the leadership of Amaechi and disregard the efforts of those who think that by disparaging and abusing Amaechi that they will succeed in bringing down the party so that they will achieve the sinister goal of their sponsors.
