Rivers State PDP Campaign Council says the Governorship candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) Engr Biokpomabo Awara, lies a lot. May be, the saying that politics is all about dishonesty and lying may be getting on the younger generation of politicians. The PDP says Awara has mastered the art of telling lies since the APC adopted his party in the state.
In a reaction to the press conference by Awara, the Director of Information and Communications of the State PDP Campaign Council Emma Okah denied that the Governor of Rivers State HE Nyesom Ezenwo Wike offered Awara the sum of N3B or any sum to drop his governorship ambition.
“The allegation is childish and ridiculous. Does he know the weight of N3BN? Where will the governor get such money to give anybody as bribe to win an election that he has already won? What did Awara do or will do that will make the governor offer him such money? Is it for the lies he tells or the election he contested and failed? Okah querried, nothing that eventhough lying is part of the APC, Awara is running faster than his masters in learning the art of falsehood.
According to Okah, Awara stands before history to elect between darkness and light and whichever course he choses will have political implication for the rest of his life.
Okah urged Awara to tow the line of honour mapped by his deputy Elder Akpo Bomba Yeeh and free himself from the yoke of standing before history to answer questions which his inordinate ambition has inflicted on the state.
“How will Awara explain to God and men of goodwill that he does not care about those that died during the governorship elections; robbing Rivers people their right to choose the governor they like and indeed, the huge economic toll the state has to bear as a result of his recklessness in wanting to serve the wrong master at the wrong time and at all cost?”he said.
Okah further assured Awara that unless he responds in full to the weighty issues raised in the press conference by Elder Akpo Bomba Yeeh, a huge burden will contiue to hover over his head.
If politics is the art of brazen lies, Rivers people are swimming in it. Awara’s running mate just threw a bombshell, the Amaechi forced him at gunpoint to sign a resignation letter and a slavis deal. His critics said he collected N200m from the state governor to lie. Now, Awara has said his own, mentioning N3Bn, and the PDP said its all lies.
