2019: No Way For APC Declares PDP Govs, Others


Governors Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, Nyesom Wike – Rivers, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi-Enugu, Okezie Ikpeazu – Abia and Seriake Dickson – Bayelsa have resolved to follow every legal and constitutional means in ensuring the All Progressives Congress (APC) finds no space in the Niger Delta region in the 2019 elections.
This they noted will be accomplished with the full support of leaders of the party including Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Obot Akpabio, serving National Assembly members, former Senators and House of Representatives members and the people of the their states.
Mr. Fayose, Ekiti Governor who was speaking as he was flanked by other Governors at the inter-denominational thanksgiving service organized by Governor Udom Gabriel Emmanuel to appreciate God for his Supreme Court victory at the Godswill Akpabio international stadium, Uyo noted that the PDP has learnt vital lessons from the 2015 elections and was going to use the experience to undo the APC in 2019 election.
Noting that the people’s support will be useful in the endeavour, Fayose said “As I walked into this stadium and saw the joy on the faces of the people, what crossed my mind was the danger we faced if the Supreme Court judgment went the other way.
How would we have handled the time bomb; of course, it would have been terrible. What it means is that the destiny of all these people would have been wasted.
Akwa Ibom State is PDP, and if it was stolen, there would have been ‘trouble’.
Explaining that PDP in the Niger Delta holds the promise for enabling  the party take over power at the centre, Fayose said “when I see the faces of Nyesom Wike, Seriake Dickson and other PDP Governors, I see the rise and rise of PDP. We shall surely take back what belongs to us”.
Alleging that the APC took away power from the PDP at the centre  in 2015 with the use of propaganda, deceit and blackmail, Fayose restated the resolve of the PDP Governor to work as one family and “reclaim our inheritance. It is our inheritance that was stolen. If we continue to work together and I know we will, our inheritance will be reclaimed. The lies and propaganda of the APC have been discovered by the people. This is why you find these large crowd here celebrating and thanking God for the Governor’s victory. They are happy that the APC did not close down their destinies”.
Fayose who called on the people of the state to continue supporting Udom for them to enjoy the dividends of democracy assured the Governor of the encouragement of other PDP Governors for him to achieve all his plans and programmes for the people of the state.
