The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 general election, Dr Dakuku Peterside, says no amount of propaganda and lies can save Governor Nyesom Wike and his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from rejection by Rivers people.

Dr Peterside, while commenting on the legislative rerun election in Rivers State after visiting his Andoni-Opobo/Nkoro Federal Constituency where voting went on smoothly, also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) despite the “challenging situations.”

He accused Governor Wike of embarking on all manner of propaganda and blackmail against leaders of the APC, security agencies and INEC, in an attempt to hoodwink unsuspecting members of the public.

The former guber candidate expressed displeasure over the way and manner known sympathisers of PDP and serving government officials have been spreading falsehood and publishing fake results both in traditional and social media.

According to him, “Rivers people are tired of Wike and his PDP propaganda which defies any form of civility and sense of decorum. The governor has made all of manner cries and wailing in an attempt to be seen as the victim and attract sympathy even he is busy hatching evil plans by the day.

“The truth of the matter is that is the governor and his party that have been plotting all manner of evil and desperation. He is only crying because all his plans have been checkmated by the presence of security agencies and determination of Rivers people to reject him because of his deceit,” he said.
Peterside, who is also the Director General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), called on Rivers people to ignore results being circulated in the social media and mischief of PDP members who have been stopped in their known tracks.
