Governor Wike Wednesday said he has reapproved Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium for the PDP presidential campaign to hold its rally on February 11, 2023.
“This morning after appeal from people who talked to me, I have given them back Adokiye Amiesimaka. Go and campaign. Let it not be that because they didn’t campaign that is why they didn’t win in Rivers State,” he said.
Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has said Sir Siminialayi Fubara remains the authentic candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the Supreme Court of Nigeria Tuesday dismisses appeal brought before it by Hon. Farah Dagogo, with claims to be the gubernatorial candidate.
The Rivers state governor stated that there is no disputation over the candidature of Sir Siminialayi Fubara as the PDP gubernatorial candidate for Rivers state.
Governor Wike spoke at Ogu Mini Stadium, venue of the Rivers state PDP campaign flag-off rally for Ogu/Bolo local government area Tuesday.
The governor said he had to make the explanation because of the apprehension that some party members have expressed sequel to rumours that there was a plot to replace Fubara as gubernatorial candidate of the party in Rivers State.
He mocked plotters against the interest of the state saying that he is always ahead of them and urged them to also return home to implement their plot.
“Supreme Court dismissed the appeal by Farah. I can tell you there is nothing we do not know about what they want to plot from the up. If you plot finish, come down and implement it,” he said.
The Rivers state governor also wondered the basis of the claim by Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, the national chairman of the PDP, who on Monday claimed that they are reaching out to the G-5 governors. He said Ayu lied when he also claimed that one of the G-5 governors visited him at his residence.
