It was rather a mini carnival as the All Progressive congress Rivers Chapter, welcomed their candidate Hon Dr Dakuku Adol Peterside, back home from Abuja. Our  correspondent Eric ogolo reports that the Port Harcourt International Airport was virtually shut down, because of the excessive number of persons who came to welcome him. People from the 23 local government areas  turned out in mass to receive their son and candidate. Our reporter said , the number of persons in the airport  was enough to fill one stadium.

The train then moved to Somewhere in GRA for a stakeholders meeting. At the meeting, all the political top shoots in Rivers state were present, this include : all Senatorial candidates, all federal house of assembly candidates, all state house of assembly candidates, all serving and ex serving members of government under the platform of the APC.  The meeting was brief but yet “spirit lifting” according to APC supporters.

The Apc state Party Chairman Chief Davies Ikanya, thanked God almighty as well as rivers citizens of rivers state, while enjoining then to vote only APC in the forth coming election, the state chairman promised, that APC will not be violent in the forth coming election.

Senator Magnus Abe of the Rivers South-East Senatorial District said the forth coming election is ” not going to be decided based on the technicalities of the law, but by the principles of democracy.

Dr Dakuku Peterside thanked God imensensly , he expressed his surprise at the turn up APC he and APC received during his home coming. in his words ” we accept that verdict, that verdict is binding all of us, ” the judgement of men has been given, we look forward to the judgement of God, and we are sure it will come. If they taunt you, ignore them, God works in mysterious ways. I ask all of you to remain patient and committed to the party. Meaning people made enormous sacrifice. But please trust in God, and remain devoted to the party.

“We are totally committed to delivering all the seats to the APC” , I want to repeat this ” we shall not loose any seat”.As a party, we are supportive and dedicated to the govt of President Mohammed Buhari. We will engage their government…..
