A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Joe Korka-Waadah says the governorship candidate of the party, Tonye Cole is the real nemesis that will sweep the PDP out of Government House, Port Harcourt.
Waadah said this in a statement while reacting to Governor, Nyesom Wike’s comment that the APC is dead in the state.
According to him, Gov Wike must be hallucinating when he made the comment, adding that the governor has overreached himself in unguarded utterances that have begun to drown him and his political career along with associates.
He also said it is preposterous for Wike to make such statement about a party he has lobbied to join or support.
Part of his statement reads,
“It’s preposterous for Wike to make such a statement about a party (APC) he has lobbied for the last couple of months to join or support. A governor who decides not to support Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of his party, PDP, before even thinking about it.
“It’s unfortunate his ambition is getting in the way of a second term for one of the governors and those running for Senate who must be regretting drowning with him for joining his petty war to fight anyone who doesn’t align with his overbearing desperation to have his way all the time.
“That speaks to who he is as a person, ruining the ambition of a handful of his friends. Wike only just realised he has overreached himself. He knows the end has come for PDP in Rivers. He knows his governorship candidate is going nowhere.
“Most of all, he knows the APC with Tonye Cole is the real nemesis that will sweep his PDP out of Government House, Port Harcourt. And having failed to use the courts to stop APC through the backdoor this time around, trying to demean the strength of our great party won’t work one bit. APC is taking Rivers to come May 29.
