A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Blessing Agbomhere, has berated some leaders of the ruling party over their visits to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
Naija News reports that some APC leaders had in recent times visited the Rivers state to commission projects done by the Wike administration.
In a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja, Agbomhere condemned the APC leaders for their association with Wike, describing it as worrisome.
Agbomhere said the frequent visit of APC chieftains to Rivers is not good for the expected victory of the APC in the state and at the national level in the 2023 general elections.
He pointed out that the influx of APC chieftains into the state was robbing off negatively on members of the party in the State while boosting the morale of the opposition PDP.
The APC chieftain noted that Rivers State was critical for APC in winning the forthcoming presidential, governorship and legislative elections in the South-South geo-political zone.
He said: “We want to call on the National leadership of the APC to urgently call some party chieftains who are now flocking to Rivers State and maintaining unholy alliances with Governor Nyesom Wike in the name of commissioning projects, to order.
“While there is nothing wrong with inviting a highly placed personality to commission unfinished projects, everything is wrong if such uncompleted projects are being used as campaign stunts ahead of crucial national elections at hand.
“By identifying with an opposition party at this time, such leaders are indirectly de-marketing our great party, especially in a state controlled by the opposition PDP.
“It is unfortunate that the influx of such APC chieftains into the State has proved highly discouraging to members of the Rivers State chapter of the APC who are striving and strategizing daily on how to win positions in the state during the forthcoming general elections.”
