The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has approved the stadium in the state for the presidential campaign rally of the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
This is despite the disagreement between both politicians that started shortly after the PDP presidential primary won by Atiku while Wike emerged second.
Announcing the approval for the stadium, Wike, however, warned the Director of the Presidential Campaign Council, Abiye Sekibo, that his team won’t have access to the stadium until the said date.
He said“Let me also use this opportunity to warn Abiye Sekibo. We have made approval for your presidential candidate to use Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, on February 11. You have no right to begin to go to the stadium now. We cannot give you access to the stadium now. We can only give you access to the stadium two days to the occasion for you to prepare.
“Nobody gave you one month. So, if you dare it again, to go and force yourself into the stadium, I will cancel the approval with immediate effect. Dare it again, I will cancel it. Heaven will not fall. In fact, if heaven falls now, we will be happy that it was in our time heaven came down,” he said.
