The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie Oyegun has told members of the party in Rivers state to fight back if they are harassed.

Oyegun said that the APC is on a rescue mission, adding that he is pleased with the enthusiasm of the party members in the state.

The APC Chairman said this while addressing party faithfuls at a rally in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.

Oyegun said “I am very pleased with the turnout here today. It shows you are truly ready. As you can see, we came in force. The whole federal might is here. You have the governors of this nation here today.

“We are sending one message, and that message is clear. It is that we respect you the people of Rivers state. We respect the courage of our members in this state. We want to let you know that we have heard your cry; we have seen your anguish; enough is enough. This is the beginning of a rescue mission.

“I was here during the time of our beautiful governor, Rotimi Amaechi. He drove me round Port Harcourt; we strolled in the city, but can you do so today? We now have a blood-thirsty regime in Rivers state.

“I am glad with what I am hearing here today; very glad. If they push you, push them back. If they slap you, slap them back.

“We cannot allow them. The APC came on a rescue mission, unfortunately they are fighting back, the same way they have always done. Are you going to allow them? It is within your powers to return the members of the house of assembly.

The Minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, also asked APC members in Rivers state to defend themselves and their votes during the upcoming Rivers rerun.
