ADDRESS PRESENTED BY HON. LASBRY AMADI LEADER OF THE LEGACY GROUP IN APC RIVERS STATE ON THE 16th MARCH 2023.
Ladies and gentlemen of the Press,
I heartily welcome you to this very important and timely press briefing.
As you all are aware, the Governorship and House of Assembly Elections are scheduled to hold nationwide, this Saturday March 18th, 2023 including in Rivers State.
As you are also aware, during the first round of elections that featured the presidential contests, those of us here voted for our party presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmad Tinubu. Similarly, that we the legacy group in the All Progressives Congress Rivers State commends the governor of Rivers State, His Excellency Nyeson Ezenwo Wike for his stance on power returning to the southern rule which is in line with the aspirations of our founding fathers.
We acknowledge the support of the Governor, his supporters and the good people of Rivers State without whom the Party (APC) would have, once again, lost the presidential Elections in the State as was the case in the previous elections.
In view of the above, therefore, we the legacy group of the All Progressive Congress, Rivers State, hereby without any form of hesitation endorse and adopt the PDP Candidate as the preferred choice for Governorship of Rivers State.
The All Progressive Congress being a party of justice and fairness, the PDP is most appropriate wherein power should rotate to the Rivers south east Senatorial zone, the only zone yet to produce the Governor of our dear State.
Finally, we call on our members within the 23 LGA to support massively for the PDP Governorship Candidate as pay back thanks to His Excellency Nyeson Ezenwo Wike for his huge contributions and sacrifices for the huge success of our APC Presidential candidate.
Thank you, gentlemen of the press.
