Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) against campaigning in the state ahead of the upcoming elections.
The outspoken governor also accused the APC of only campaigning because of their planned reliance on state violence to manipulate the results of elections.
Speaking in Port Harcourt, the Rivers Statecapital during the a rally of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the governor alleged that the evil machinations of the opposition APC emboldened the party to think it can invade the state.
According to Wike, “If I were in APC, there are some states that I dare not campaign in. One of such states is Rivers State.
“If APC is not a blood-sucking political party, they won’t be coming to Rivers State to attempt campaigning. In this state, they have nothing on ground to promote themselves.
“They think they will rely on state violence, but that will fail them.
“There was a government here for eight years and it allowed Port Harcourt to decay.
“Amaechi lived in Borokiri, but did nothing to improve the roads in that area.
“But, I have transformed roads in Borokiri, Township, Abuluoma, GRA, Diobu and other parts of the city”.
