How Wike defeated Awara in Amaechi LGA
PDP polled 14,938 while the AAC got 5,660 in Ikwere LGA where Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation hails from. This came as a shock, because it is expected that since Amaechi is pushing for Awara Governorship, he should have done his best to make sure Awara wins in his LGA.
This throws the question;
Has Amaechi lost popularity or relevance in his LGA?
Meanwhile, Governor Nyesom Wike is leading in the results announced so far.
Awara has only won 2 LGA.
Read below to find out how Wike defeated Awara in Amaechi’s LGA.
Incumbent governor and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Nyesom Wike, has defeated Biokpomabo Awara in Ikwere Local Government Areas.
Ikwere is the LGA of the immediate past Governor of the State and Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi.
Following the non-participation of the All Progressives Congress in the elections in Rivers State, Amaechi had thrown his weight behind Awara, and vowed that Wike must be defeated.
However, as results are being announced at the collation centre in Port Harcourt, the State capital, the PDP polled 14,938 while the AAC got 5,660 in Ikwere LGA where the Minister hails from.
Amaechi’s candidate has been able to win only 2 LGAs out of the 19 announced so far.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has suspended collation till 3pm.
