RIVER: APC suspends campaign over court verdict

THE All Progressives Congress chapter in Rivers State revealed today that it will not be scared or deterred by the Federal High Court decision that disqualified all of its candidates for the general elections of 2023.

Reports reveal that all of the primary polls that produced candidates for the APC for all elective positions in the state had been declared invalid on Tuesday by a Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt and presided over by Justice Emmanuel Obile.

The state’s APC chairman, Chief Emeka Beke, urged party members not to be deterred by what he called a distraction while speaking to reporters in Port Harcourt yesterday. Beke asserted that the party was ready to take control of the state in 2023.

However, he stated that the party had canceled its previous Friday campaign.

Beke stated that the party was making a lot of effort to get on the election ballot.

He said, “We are working to ensure that what happened the last time (2019) will not repeat itself.

“They are only trying to distract our people and then begin to buy them over to their party with the claim that APC does not have candidates.

“As a party, we are supposed to flag off our campaign team on Friday and roll out our master plan for the Rivers people. We have to put it off till next week. We need to start a process to boost the morale of our followers and we will come out very strong.”
