Igbos, Yorubas, Ijaw Eastern Zone in Rivers Endorse Dakuku Peterside

Igbos, Yorubas, Ijaw Eastern Zone in Rivers Lend Support to Dakuku Peterside
Igbo community in Rivers State said it has given its support to the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the state, Dakuku Peterside.
The president of Igbo community, Samuel Ubaka, made this known at a large meeting with Igbos and Igbo title holders in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.

He said: “in our meeting today we had a resolution that every Igbo man living in Rivers State mst vote for APC governorship candidate, Hon. Adol Dakuku Peterside. We have reached this decision because we want to ensure that no Igbo man living in Rivers State travels. 25 percent of the properties you see in Rivers State are owned by Igbo men, so we should stay here to vote to protect out interest.”

Similarly, the Yoruba community in the state also gave its support to the APC in the state.
In a statement jointly signed by the leader of Yoruba, Ahmed Adisa, and vice chairman non indigene in APC, Wale Ogunbiade, called on the Yorubas to cast their votes for the APC in the governorship election.

The statement also said the decision to support the APC was to ensure the interest of Yorubas was protected in Rivers State.

Also the eastern zone of the Ijaw National Congress (IYC), said it has also endorsed the APC candidate in the state, Dakuku Peterside, as a son from the Ijaw extraction.
President General of IYC, Boma Obofubo, said its decision was based on the principal of power rotation and a communiqué signed at the end of a meeting held in October 2013 and in September 2014.

“Following the resolution and communiqué of the IYC Eastern Zone in past fora held in October 2013 and September 2014, we hereby reiterate to endorse the governorship candidate of Ijaw extraction without prejudice to the political party in the spirit of fairness, good faith and good conscience,” Obofuba said.
