LAGOS: THE All Progressives Congress (APC) said it had unearthed a plot by the gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Nyesome Wike, committee to study and clone the Four-Point Agenda of its governorship candidate, Dr Dakuku Peterside.
The opposition alleged Wike had established a three-man committee to clone the agenda entitled “Road Map To Prosperity”, which the party said would serve as an instrument to be used to revolutionise Rivers State under the envisaged Peterside administration.
“This attempt by Chief Wike to steal our candidate’s ideas is entirely not surprising because he is a man without principles who has been campaigning without any defined agenda for the development and emancipation of Rivers State than the spreading of violence,” Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, spokesperson of the Rivers APC State chairman said in a statement.
“The truth is that Wike is not prepared for the serious job of governing a complex State like Rivers and was conscripted into the race by his paymasters in Abuja as a ploy by the PDP and the Presidency to deny the Riverine part of Rivers an opportunity to have a shot at the seat of power after 16 years of governorship by the Upland part of the State.”
APC said it strongly condemned the alleged attempt by Wike, who could not be reached for comment, to clone its agenda for his “doomed campaign.” “We wish to appeal to the good people of Rivers State to take note of the emptiness and lack of vision and mission being exhibited by Chief WIke and the Rivers State PDP in the countdown to the February elections,” Eze said.
“Let us for the avoidance of doubt emphasise that the choice before Rivers State has never been so crystal clear as it is for the 2015 polls. “It is a choice between darkness and light, good and evil, justice and injustice; it is clear to all that APC through Dr Dakuku Peterside represents the light, the good and justice.”
