…Dakuku’s Campaign Coordinator Dumps APC

It is now obvious that Governor Ezenwo Nyesom Wiek is not leaving anything to chance as he continues to consolidate on his hold on the politics of Rivers State.

His latest onslaught was on Okrika Local Government Area where supporters of the  All Progressive Congress, APC,  decamped in their numbers to the Peoples Democratic Party,PDP.

Speaking with newsmen today in Port Harcourt, the coordinator of Dakuku Peterside Campaign Organisation in Okrika, Dagogo Spencer said that they were in Chief Emeh Glory Emeh’s residence in Port Harcourt to declare for Gov Wike and the PDP.

He maintained that they  are moving to the PDP because they are tired of the cock and bull story of the leaders, and the infighting that has become the stock in trade of APC in Rivers State.

Receiving the decampees, Chief Emeh Glory Emeh thanked them for the decision to embrace the PDP, the winning party, describing the decision as timely, as according to him, “delay defeats equity. He who wants equity must go in time”.

The former Chief of Staff, Rivers State Government House however described Governor Wike as an astute politician who has a large heart, so large that it can accommodate all, both  old and new.

Chief Emeh informed the decampees that a date will be worked out for them to be formally received by the party leadership in the state.

It would be recalled that, in the last few weeks, Chief Emeh’s Port Harcourt residence has become a Mecca of sorts as several groups from Ahoada- East, Abual/Odual, Emohua, Asari-Toru, Akuku-Toru, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni, Port Harcourt, Obio/Akpor, as well as non indigenes have called, pledging their support for the administration of Governor Wike and PDP, while denouncing APC in Rivers State.
