The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has clarified issues surrounding its gubernatorial choice, as it has just confirmed the party’s caucus has agreed to field Dr. Amaopusenbo Dakuku Adolphus Peterside, as its standard bearer in the next governorship election.
In a statement issued Thursday by the State’s Publicity Secretary, Senibo Chris Finebone, APC indicated that the clarification was necessary, in the face of the recent conflicting and speculative media reports on the issue, stating that it was important to properly “situate what has happened to prevent avoidable misreporting by the media and not to play into the hands of detractors and mischief-makers.”
“Indeed, the Rivers State APC Caucus, after a long period of diligent scrutiny and in their wisdom, yesterday (Wednesday) endorsed Amaopusenbo [Dr] Dakuku Adolphus Peterside MHR for the forthcoming governorship primaries of the party in Rivers State.
“It is important to re-emphasize that the primaries of the APC in Rivers State will hold as planned and all processes will be duly and diligently adhered to” the party clarified.
APC also pledged to forge ahead in upholding and abiding by the “hallowed principle of internal party democracy” as well as not deviate from it.
