Amaechi declares support for Rivers AAC guber candidate


 The leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State and the South-south zone, Rotimi Amaechi has declared his support for the governorship candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Awara Biokpomabo.

The minister of Transportation made this declaration Wednesday morning in Eleme, Eleme LGA of Rivers state, while addressing APC’s members and supporters, ahead of the March 9 polls.

Amaechi urged members of the APC and supporters of the party in Rivers to massively vote on Saturday for Biokpomabo, a riverine man from Kula-Kalabari in Akuku-Toru Local Government Area of the state.

He noted that although the main opposition APC in Rivers was still in court over the non-inclusion of the party’s standard bearer, Pastor Tonye Cole, an indigene of Abonnema-Kalabari in Akuku-Toru LGA, on the ballot, it was pertinent to adopt the candidate of AAC, considering the closeness of the governorship and House of Assembly elections.

“This morning, the leadership of the party met and agreed that we would work with a party called African Action Congress (AAC), while we are still in court to reclaim our mandate.

“So, on Saturday (March 9), we will vote for AAC. You must go home and vote for AAC. There should be no excuse not to vote, because there will be security for everybody. You must prepare and make sure you win the governorship election.

“The moment the governorship election is won by AAC’s candidate this Saturday and the new governor is inaugurated on May 29, 2019, by June this year; there will be local government’s chairmanship and councillorship elections.

“So, you should all go out and vote and make sure that you are not rigged out.”
