PORT HARCOURT (Sundiata Post) – The immediate past Chairman of Asari-Toru Local Government Area in Rivers State, Mr. Ojukaye Flag-Amachree has called on the entire people of Kalabari Kingdom in Rivers State to remember as they vote, the criminal take-over of Soku Oil Wells and the pain the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP inflicted on Kalabari people and Rivers State.
The former chairman made the call at Kalabari National College Buguma during the flag-off of All Progressives Congress, APC state rally.
Amachree who expressed displeasure over the despicable humiliation the Kalabari suffered in the hands of President Goodluck Jonathan, a fellow Ijaw man, appealed to his people to reject the president and PDP to restore their dignity.
“As you vote in February, one important thing that should be on your mind is the ceased Soku Oil Wells. They cannot take our God-given wealth and expect us to continue keeping them in office. You all remember that we did everything humanly possible to take back our wealth but because they are in power, they ignored us.
“Now God has given us a golden opportunity to recover our oil wells and develop our kingdom by voting them out. We must therefore support the All Progressives Congress, APC and General Muhammadu Buhari, a good man who loves our people. The choices before us are therefore simple and straight-forward. Reject our oppressor, the PDP and vote for APC because that is the direction everybody is headed.
He praised Dr. Dakuku Peterside, APC governorship candidate for his progressive programme for people of Rivers State, adding that the difference between PDP and APC is darkness and light but that Rivers people have chosen light which APC represents.
