Why Rivers APC Is Not Campaigning For The Rerun Elections
Paul Obiajunwo, PortHarcourt
Rivers State Governor , Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has  stated that Rivers APC has refused to  campaign  because of the assurances  from INEC  and the security agencies that the  elections would be  manipulated in their favour  .
He stated that the plot to rig would come to nought because the people of Rivers State  are vigilant and would not be intimidated  by  the illegal  use of security  agents to aid INEC  to rig.
He spoke at Emohua  on Tuesday  where he flagged-off the  rehabilitation of the General Hospital , Emohua and the reconstruction of the Rumuakunde-Rumuche-Akpa-Abaka road.
The governor  called on Emohua Youths to rise up  and defend their votes , pointing out that this is the time to send non-performing  politicians  on retirement .
He said: “They have  refused to campaign  because  they have  received  assurances  of rigging.
“The man who plans to hijack materials , how many heads does he have? Emohua  people must  stand  up  to defend  their votes. “
Speaking  further , Governor Wike  urged the people of Emohua  to hold their prominent  politicians to account, pointing out that most of them spent eight years  in office without attracting a worthwhile  project  to the local government area.
The governor  said  that  the two projects flagged are targeted at improving  the living  standard  of  the  Emohua people.
He noted that  the Rumuakunde-Rumuche-Akpa-Abaka road will enhance the economy  of  the  local government .
The governor  also  announced the comprehensive  reconstruction of Elele-Alimini Internal Roads and  the completion of the construction of Emohua Government Secondary School demolished by the  Amaechi administration .
In his address, the Commissioner for Works , Mr Bathuel Iheanyichukwu said the
Rumuakunde-Rumuche-Akpa-Abaka road has led to the  flight of  investors from  the  area.
He said the reconstruction  of  the road will revive the economy  of  Emohua .
Rivers State Health Commissioner , Dr Theophilus Odagme said that the rehabilitation of the General Hospital in Emohua  will create  access to  quality healthcare in the area.
