Minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress has declared his support for Awara Biokpomabo, the governorship candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in Rivers state. Recall that Omoyele Sowore, publisher of SaharaReporters, contested the presidential election under the platform of the AAC.
Amaechi made his position known while addressing APC members and supporters in Eleme local government area of the state, on Wednesday while urging members of the ruling party to massively vote for Biokpomabo during the governorship election on Saturday.
Amaechi Amaechi while noting that it was important to adopt the candidate of AAC, “considering the closeness” of the governorship and state house of assembly elections,added that there were “numerous benefits they would derive from the government adding that the APC was still in court over the non-inclusion of the party’s standard bearer, Tonye Cole, on the ballot.
“On Saturday, we will vote for AAC. You must go home and vote for AAC. There should be no excuse not to vote, because there will be security for everybody. You must prepare and make sure you win the governorship election. The moment the governorship election is won by AAC’s candidate this Saturday and the new governor is inaugurated on May 29, 2019, by June this year, there will be local government’s chairmanship and councillorship elections. So, you should all go out and vote and make sure that you are not rigged out.”
Amaechi was, however, silent on who the APC members should vote for in the house of assembly poll.
