News Africa: There’s no way PDP will lose River State – Wike



There’s no way PDP will lose River State – Wike
Rivers State Governor, Nysom Wike, has talked big, noting that it is impossible for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to lose in Saturday gubernatorial election to an unknown party that did not even campaign.
This was made known in a post on his Twitter account Thursday night, when he boasted that if PDP, loses in Rivers State on Saturday, then it means that the election is not free and fair.
The governor’s comment is a reference to the fact that the main opposition in the state, All Progressive Congress (APC), is not fielding any candidate for any of the elections in the state following a court order that resulted from an internal crisis.
Although APC has adopted the African Action Congress((AAC) gubernatorial candidate, Awara Biokpomabo, for the Saturday elections, Wike is of the opinion that AAC does not stand a chance as it did not campaign rigorously.
He tweet: “There is no way that the PDP will lose Rivers State and they tell the world that the elections are free and fair.
“Even if we want to play politics, how would they explain to the International community that PDP lost to an unknown party that did not campaign?”
