The APC in Rivers State has described Governor, Nyesom Wike’s incessant visits to the Presidential Villa as “survival tactics.”
Spokesperson of the party, Darlington Nwauju in an interview with Punch over the weekend said President, Tinubu is well experienced to know that a superstructure cannot be erected on nothing.
According to him, there is no way those who have laboured to plant and sustain the APC structure in the state can be wished away.
He also said if they had all surrendered to intimidation, the party would have been dead in the state.
“What we think is that these are mere survival tactics and we wish him well. President Tinubu is well experienced as a seasoned politician to know that you can’t erect a superstructure on nothing,” he said.
“There is no way those who have laboured to plant and sustain the APC structure in the state can be wished away. If we had all surrendered to intimidation and had been chased away by the fear of the killings, would there have been anything like APC in Rivers State today? Of course, we are here today because we resisted the plot to annihilate everything APC in this state.“
“And if APC hadn’t won in 2015, there wouldn’t have been a platform to run or work with in 2023. There is a saying in Etche language that ‘it is the coconut that gave birth to the kernel,” he added.
