A chieftain of the APC in Rivers State, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has
lashed at the recent judicial attempt aimed at denying the All
Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State the opportunity of strongly
contending with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019. He also
lampooned the bashing of Pastor Tonye Cole, the Flag-bearer of APC in
next year’s general elections attributing the action to an alliance
between the State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike and the Senator
representing Rivers South-East Senatorial District of the State, Senator
Magnus Abe.

a second term for Wike and to pass the baton on to Magnus Abe in 2023
becomes deadly and imperative. According to him, this has resulted to
the desperation by the duo and their aides that conjure all sort of
funny falsehoods in order to ruin the person and personality of a
respected and renowned figure like Pastor Tonye Cole who is believed to
be the anointed next Governor of Rivers State come 2019.
However, Eze noted that the plot would run into the rocks as the coming
of Tonye Cole is to rescue Rivers State from the PDP-led government.
The party chieftain also condemned the alleged unruly protest by some
persons identified as supporters of Senator Abe last weekend at the
national secretariat of the party in Abuja, during which the campaign
billboards of President Muhammadu Buhari and that of the party’s
National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, were  vandalised by the
