No preferred governorship aspirants, says Rivers APC

The Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Isaac Ogbobula, has denied reports that the party preferred some governorship aspirants ahead of 2023 general election.

Ogbobula, in a statement in Port Harcourt at the weekend by the party’s spokesman, Ogbonna Nwuke, described as false, reports quoting him as saying that Dakuku Peterside, Biokpo Awara and Tonye Cole were preferred aspirants.

He said: “My attention has been drawn to reports that I said APC has preferred aspirants. I said no such thing.

“My dear party leaders and members, please ignore the fake report. It is the handiwork of fifth columnists bent on causing confusion in our midst. We must expect more of these acts of mischief and blackmail as the 2023 countdown starts.

“Peterside, Awara and Cole are great and wonderful party leaders and we love them dearly.

“But we must not allow anyone to ascribe to any party functionary, an act which he or she did not undertake. Kindly ignore the circulation of fake news.”

Ogbobula appealed to persons spreading propaganda to take it easy, saying the deliberate misinformation added no substance to the promotion of healthy relations among political parties.

He said: “I urge the public, particularly members of our party, to shun the publication. There are people who want to destabilise our party. By the grace of God they will fail.”
