representing Andoni-Opobo/Nkoro Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Hon Dakuku Peterside, says the just concluded All Progressives Congress (APC) state congress marked the beginning of the end of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State.
Hon Peterside made this known on Saturday, shortly after the Rivers State APC congress, held at the Alfred Diette-Spiff Civic Centre, Port Harcourt.
He expressed confidence that, the party congress would return the state to the main stream of national opinions and therefore called on all party members to support the Ikanya led executive.
“The APC congress in the state marked the beginning of the end of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state and the beginning of the end of a visionless leadership in the country.
“Today is the beginning of our journey and so ultimately means the beginning of the end of all cheating and bad governance across the country” Peterside said.
Also speaking to The Tide, the chairman of Andoni Local Government Area of the state, Sir Oron Nte Ereforokuma congratulated the newly elected chairman of APC in the state, saying that whoever God had ordained, no man can dislodge him.
Ereforokuma expressed optimism that the new leadership of the party would lead the party to victory in the 2015 general elections.
Meanwhile, the Pilot Group in Rivers State has expressed support for Chief Ikanya led executive, saying APC had made the right choice.
According to the spokesman of the group, Chief A.A. Luke Edam, the election of Chief Ikanya as APC chairman in the state would give the party upper hand over other political parties in the 2015 general elections.
