Anambra Election Will Hold In Peace, Abaribe Tells IPOB

Published

Anambra

Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe, has said that it is in the interest of all and sundry to allow the Anambra gubernatorial election to hold next Saturday.

The former Abia State Deputy-Governor was speaking on Friday at the Housing Estate, Fegge in Onitsha, South Local Government Area of the state, during a campaign tour of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Valentine Ozigbo. Abaribe begged the electorates to vote for Ozigbo.

Crystal News recalls that the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had threatened a lockdown in Anambra State if its leader, Nnamdi Kanu is not released by the Nigerian Federal Government next week.

“Don’t vote for RUGA people, don’t vote for those who want to rule Anambra from under or through the back door” Abaribe pleaded.

“Only PDP can rescue Nigeria and Anambra State from this bondage of insecurity, corruption and human rights abuses. PDP is the only vehicle that can take Nigeria to the desired Igbo presidency. If not PDP, is it APC which has strangled Nigeria or APGA which is not even recognized at the centre that will rescue Nigeria from its present economic and security quagmire?” Abaribe said.

2023: I Will Not Impose My Successor On Rivers — Wike

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers on Thursday said he would not impose any governorship aspirant of his choice on the people of Rivers come 2023.

Wike gave the assurance in a statement issued by Mr. Kelvin Ebiri, his Special Assistant on Media, in Port Harcourt.

He assured that the leadership of the party would meet to decide who to support at the appropriate time.

Wike however said that he is obliged to ensure that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) wins the 2023 governorship election in Rivers.

“One mistake I will not make is to impose somebody. From my experience as a student of history, reality has shown that it is difficult for you to say Joseph is the man I can trust.

”Until you give somebody power and money, that is only when you will know whether that person is trustworthy or not,” he said.

Wike stated that God would not allow someone who will destroy all the remarkable progress the state had made over the years to be the next governor.

”God will ensure that it is only someone who is courageous, firm and ready to protect the interest of Rivers that will succeed me.

“Rivers is a state that so many people have an interest in. It is a state that you have to put your feet on the ground. It is a state that you have to annoy a lot of Nigerians and a lot of Nigerians will hate you.

“But what is important is for you to know is what is good for your people and stand for your people. Do not allow personal interest to sway you against the interest of your people,” Wike stated.
