The State APC governorship candidate, Tonye Cole recently revealed this to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the chairmen of the 23 Local Government Councils in the State who have been directed by the Governor to enforce his punitive and draconian directive under Executive Order 21 are hereby put on notice.
Tonye added that the APC shall campaign with its candidates across the length and breadth of Rivers State as provided under the constitution and as prescribed by law.
His words, “The Chairmen of the 23 Local Government Councils in the State who have been directed by the Governor to enforce his punitive and draconian directive under Executive Order 21 are hereby put on notice.”
“That APC shall campaign with our candidates across the length and breadth of Rivers State as provided under the constitution and as prescribed by law.”
“We will neither succumb to intimidation nor accept the presentation of a fait accompli by Executive Order 21 to political parties other than the Peoples Democratic Party on which platform they and the Governor were elected in the first place.”
“We draw the attention of those to whom it may concern that the enforcement of that Order howsoever by the Council Chairmen would amount to a brazen affront on our constitutional rights as political parties and a campaign organization.”
“We urge them to resist the lure of exercise of power that can only result in anarchy from the resistance of the parties and candidates targeted by the obnoxious Executive Order 21.”
“In 2023 we will have the opportunity to at long last, after nearly a decade in leadership wilderness, where hopelessness, joblessness and wickedness have been the order of the day, have the opportunity to freely choose their own leader.”
“A leader who will respect them, who understands them, who will not abuse his powers, who understands the difference between politics and governance.”
“We state unequivocally that Executive Order 21 is another manifestation of his (Wike’s) penchant to crush and suppress opposition in a multiparty democracy instead of allowing citizens to exercise their freedom of choice as enshrined in the Constitution.”
