Wike grants Atiku’s campaigners conditional access to Rivers stadium for rally

 Wike and Atiku Abubakar

Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike has given campaigners of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, only 48 hours to access the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium for their presidential campaign scheduled for February 11th.

The Governor insisted that the approval granted at no cost to Presidential Campaign Council would only give them access to the stadium two days to the event. 

Wike spoke on Friday at the campaign inauguration of the Rivers State PDP Campaign Council in Oyigbo Local Government Area on Friday.

The Governor threaten to cancel the approval if the  Director-General of the PCC  in Rivers State, Dr. Abiye Sekibo, tried to take forceful possession of the stadium weeks to the event.

He said Sekibo had no right to want to take possession of the stadium one month before the date of the event.

Wike said: “Let me also use this opportunity to warn Abiye Sekibo, we have made  approval for your presidential candidate to use Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, February 11th, you have no right to begin to go to the stadium now. 

“We cannot give you access to the stadium now.  We can only give you access to the stadium two days to the occasion for you to prepare.

“Nobody gave you one month. So, if you dare it again, to go and force yourself into the stadium, I will cancel the approval with immediate effect. Dare it again, I will cancel it. Heaven will not fall. In fact, if heaven falls now, we will be happy that it was in our time heaven came down.”

The Governor wondered why Sekibo was acting against the approval given to him,  saying he seemed to be seeking reasons for a blame game in case the rally failed as planned. 

“I know you are not ready to do that rally. You are only looking for excuse.  But you must do it. I know you are going to import people, no problems, go and import. We have given you the stadium,” the Governor said.

Wike also took a swipe at the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State for blaming the crisis that greeted the campaign of its governorship candidate in Mile one Diobu, Port Harcourt on Thursday, on the PDP.

The Governor said that APC became a victim of the brewing crisis between the two factions in Rumuwoji community because they did not address their demand adequately.

Wike wondered why the APC did not encounter crises with their rallies when they used the Tipper Park in Etche Local Government and the IYM secretariat in Ikwerre Local Government.

The Governor asked them to stop complaining if they were not ready for the forthcoming general election insisting that the state PDP was ready for the poll.  

Wike mocked Senator Andrew Uchendu for failing to attract developmental projects in his Mgbuitanwo community despite serving in many administrations. 

He said it was his administration that contracted a firm to construct internal roads, fitted with streetlights in Mgbuitanwo.
