Chief of Staff to the Rivers State Governor, Engr Chukwuemeka Woke, has told the Riverine people of the state  not to believe the claims of Former Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi  on gubernatorial rotation, until he resigns his appointment as Minister of the Federal Republic.
He also declared  that the Senator Representing Rivers East Senatorial District, Chief Andrew Uchendu must first vacate his seat,  if his campaign on gubernatorial rotation should be taken  seriously.
Speaking during a ceremony to welcome APC decampees to the PDP and an empowerment initiative by Governor Wike in Emohua Local Government Area on Sunday , the Chief of Staff to the Rivers State Governor noted that the Minister of Transportation and Senator Representing Rivers East displaced  the riverine politically to snatch their positions, even though Governor Wike was already on seat as governor.
He said: “Let him that goes to equity, come with clean hands. If APC says power must rotate in Rivers, they should remember  that at the time Wike was inaugurated as Minister on May 29, 2015, Rivers State had no minister.
“The man who says he loves Rivers State so much and that Ikwerre must not take everything, put himself forward and became Minister.  At that time, he didn’t know it was Ikwerre-Ikwerre. Rivers East Senatorial District unanimously voted Senator George Sekibo from Ogo-Bolo.  Ikwerre was already governor and naturally a Wakrike man was voted. The same person, Andrew Uchendu fought him and removed him through unwholesome route.
“For the sake of equity and based on their campaign, let Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi resign as Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and let Andrew Uchendu resign as Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, then  we will know that  they are serious. Otherwise, they are deceiving  their few followers”.
He declared that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is not valuable  to Rivers people, hence they will vote the PDP  again in 2019.
 Engr Woke said aside the circulation of lies, the APC Federal Government has not executed any projects in the  state.
He said the way Emohua people overwhelmingly voted for PDP during the Presidential, Gubernatorial and Legislative elections in 2015 is the way that they will vote again in 2019.
“This is a period of stock-taking. It is not a time to make vain statements.  All across Rivers State, the APC Federal Government has no projects.  Here in Emohua Local Government Area, there is nothing  that can be credited  to the APC.
“However, in Emohua Local Government Area, Governor Wike has empowered  the  people and executed projects  across different communities “, he said.
Speaking, Rivers State PDP Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah assured the APC decampees to the PDP  that they  will be accorded equal treatment  by the party.
He commended the Emohua PDP for their mass mobilisation which will lead to a PDP victory in 2019.
Member Representing Emohua State Constituency at the Rivers State House of Assembly, Sam Ogeh said the massive turnout at the event has reinforced the loyalty of Emohua people to PDP.
Special Adviser to the Rivers State Governor on Politics, Chief Emeh Glory said that the people of the area are determined  to deliver Governor Wike in 2019.
