The Minister of Transportation and leader of Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chibuike Amaechi, has said that his party is sure of winning in Ogoni land and other parts of the state in the forthcoming re-run election.
Amaechi, who spoke at a rally in Bera community, Gokana Local Government Area (LGA), said the victory in Ogoni and Rivers South East Senatorial District had already been guaranteed, considering the support the party enjoys in the district.
He said the contest would take place in the Ikwerre and Ahoada areas. “If there is one place that the APC should win, it is Ogoni. But Nyesom Wike says he must win here. Since he is not God, he will fail. The battle is not here at all. The battle is in Ikwerre and Ahoada axis. So, he had better forget here,” he said.
The former governor said the support from the district stemmed from the developmental projects he sited in the area and the appointments given to sons and daughters of the area while he was governor.
He, therefore, charged Wike to either match his achievements in Ogoni land or supersede them.
Amaechi, who spoke on the number of indigent persons in the area given scholarships to study abroad while he was governor, accused Wike of repatriating them.
The minister urged the people to turn out en masse and vote for the APC, assuring them of protection against the alleged threats from the governor.
