Why we will permit Atiku to hold a campaign rally in Rivers State - Gov. Wike



Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike,

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has provided an explanation of why his administration authorized the People's Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) to use the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar's campaign there.


The governor claimed he made the decision to give the go-ahead so that Atiku's campaign council wouldn't hold him responsible for the event's failure to draw a sizable number of supporters.


“I have given you permission to use the stadium for your presidential candidate”.

“I know you are not ready to do that rally. You are only looking for excuse. But you must do it. I know you are going to import people, no problems, go and import. We have given you the stadium.”


However, Wike clarified that the agreement made free of charge to the Presidential Campaign Council stipulates that the council will have 48 hours' access to the stadium prior to the start of the 2023 presidential campaign.


Speaking at the Rivers State PDP Campaign Council's campaign kickoff event on Friday in Oyigbo Local Government Area, Wike said that Dr. Abiye Sekibo, the director general of the PCC in Rivers State, has no right to want to take possession of the stadium one month prior to the date of the planned event.


Dr. Sekibo was told not to anger the Rivers State administration by frantically attempting to occupy the state-owned stadium in the weeks leading up to the election; else, the approval would be revoked.


Dr. Sekibo and his group, according to the approval he signed, can only start to access the stadium two days prior to the event in order to confirm and set up what they need for their rally.


“Let me also use this opportunity to warn Abiye Sekibo, we have made approval for your presidential candidate to use Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, February 11th, you have no right to begin to go to the stadium now. We cannot give you access to the stadium now. We can only give you access to the stadium two days to the occasion for you to prepare”.


“Nobody gave you one month. So, if you dare it again, to go and force yourself into the stadium, I will cancel the approval with immediate effect. Dare it again, I will cancel it. Heaven will not fall. In fact, if heaven falls now, we will be happy that it was in our time heaven came down.”


The governor asserted that Sekibo was operating outside the permission granted to him and that it looks he is looking for someone to hold accountable should the demonstration not succeed.



Wike also criticized the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State for blaming the PDP for the chaos that greeted its candidate for governor on Thursday during his campaign in Mile One Diobu, Port Harcourt.


The governor emphasized that because APC did not sufficiently satisfy their requests, they became a victim of the developing conflict between the two factions in the Rumuwoji community.


He claimed that when the APC used Tipper Park in Etche Local Government and the IYM secretariat in Ikwerre Local Government for their rallies, there were no problems.


Because the PDP in the state is completely prepared for the election, the governor urged them to cease whining if they are not prepared for the upcoming general election.


Governor Wike made fun of Senator Andrew Uchendu for his failure to bring development projects to his Mgbuitanwo town after serving in several governments.

He claimed that his administration hired Julius Berger to build internal roads with street lighting at Mgbuitanwo.


The governor emphasized that Tonye Cole, the APC candidate for governor, sold the State's gas turbines and stole $50 million from the State account while working with the Chibuike Amaechi administration.


Governor Wike claimed that the APC governorship is currently the target of criminal proceedings and that the state government wants the $50 million back so that it may use it for development projects.


“Go and bring our money back. We want to use the money to develop the people of Oyigbo, to develop the people of Rivers state.”


The governor also charged the APC candidate for governor with orchestrating the military's execution of numerous people in Abonnema ahead of the general election in 2019.


The governor of Rivers State informed the Oyigbo people that Sir Siminialayi Fubara, the PDP's nominee for governor, will build on the successes already made and continue from where his government will end.


Sir Siminialayi Fubara, the PDP candidate for governor of Rivers State, warned Mr. Tonye Cole in his speech to concentrate on his campaign and keep him out of his issues.


Sir. Fubara stated that his administration, if elected, would continue the policies of the outgoing administration under the guiding principle of consolidation and continuity.


He claims that he will expand on the infrastructure improvements made by the Wike administration in Oyigbo, maintain the gains in security, provide high-quality educational facilities, foster an environment that will encourage small enterprises, and enhance the standard of living for the populace.


Governor Wike has done so well, according to Felix Obuah, director general of the Rivers State PDP Campaign Council, and Fubara will build on his accomplishments.


Ambassador Desmond Akawor, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP Rivers )'s State Chairman, gave the party's flag to each candidate running for an elected seat.


The candidates, according to Senator Barinada Mpigi, who spoke on their behalf, are "completely sim-plifed" and ready to work for their people' and the state's overall interests. He declared that they would carry out all of Governor Wike's requests.
