The All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain pitched his tent with Awara Biokpomabo, the governorship candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), directing APC members to vote for the AAC.
” It is interesting to note that now that the APC has found itself without a gubernatorial candidate in the coming elections; they have finally acknowledged that the AAC does indeed have something to offer, said AAC leader, Mr Omoyele Sowore.
” We wish to make it unequivocally clear that we have we not entered any alliances or coalitions with the APC or any other party in Rivers State. Neither have we made any decisions to dovetail parties or seek strategic alliances as we approach the state elections in a few days.
” The AAC, led by Omoyele Sowore, promised Nigerians a different style of governance at the national level; we also believe we can bring this new promise of transparency and progress to bear at the state level.
Parties are free to endorse whatever candidate they want to – Nigerians have witnessed many of these last-minute decisions in the last few weeks – but we will continue to engage the Nigerian people at grassroots and state level, specifically the great people of Rivers state, to continue to make them aware of the plans and programmes of the African Action Congress party, the AAC said further.
The party urge Nigerians to come out en masse on the 9th of March and vote for transformation and a true paradigm shift, the kind that only the African Action Congress can bring.
The APC has no candidate for governor in Rivers state.
