A chieftain of the PDP in Rivers State Princewill Dike has reacted to calls by Tonye Cole of the APC for Sim Fubara to address Rivers people on his plans for them on radio or television promising to foot the bills.
Cole had during his campaign in Port Harcourt challenged Fubara to a debate on radio or television.
However, Dike in a statement yesterday called on Cole to leave Fubara alone, noting that the PDP candidate is a man of action and has an advantage over him.
“Nothing can be more hilarious, or should we say, ludicrous than that public dramatisation. Must everybody be loquacious? Does speaking on radio or television make a good political leader?” he said.
“Unlike Cole, Fubara is a man of few words, but action filled. The Great Abraham Lincoln of evergreen memory asserts that ‘actions speak louder than words’. Back home, our own Kongi, Prof. Wole Soyinka in the Lion and the Jewel opines that the strength of the lion is not in its mien but in the tail,” he added.
