Blessing Agbomhere, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has criticized some leaders of the ruling party for their meetings with Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
According to a report by Naija Politics, several officials of the APC recently traveled to Rivers state to commission various projects completed by the governor.
Agbomhere expressed anger with the APC leaders for their association with Wike in a statement that was issued on Tuesday in Abuja.
According to him, the frequent visit of APC chieftains to Rivers is not good for the APC in the general elections in 2023.
He emphasized that the arrival of APC chieftains in the state is having an effect on members of the party in the state while boosting the morale of the opposition PDP.
He added that Rivers State is critical for the success of the APC in the upcoming 2023 presidential, and governorship elections that will take place 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.
