The plan to shift the PDP document of electoral fortunes within the state to the APC used to be hinted at through Leader Emeka Beke, the Rivers State APC chairman.

Beke disclosed this in an unique interview in PortHarcourt, Rivers State capital.

“If you want to win elections you need to mobilize your people. So, first, the people should go and get their PVCs. That is the most important thing.

“Then make them understand why they need to change from the present PDP government to the APC-led administration in the state come 2023 because Governor Nyesom Wike has failed Rivers people”.
