|Minister Dalung and Gov. Wike|
According to Premium Times, the video shows Dalung telling Rivers youth to ask anyone seeking their votes to give account of their stewardship when they were given the opportunity.
“2019, anybody wey come dey halla, dey talk long grammar, make una ask am one question; the one wey we give you, wetin you do with am,” he said in pidgin English.
In a manner which sounded like an endorsement and campaign for the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, Dalung said, “Even Governor Wike, if him come in 2019, make him show una the one him do including the road. But I know say una go give (vote) am because him done do this one for una ”
The minister challenged anyone who is ‘angry’ that Wike is hosting the championship to bring his money and do the same.
Governor Wike is a member of the main opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), while Amaechi and Dalung are members of the ruling APC.
Wike, who succeeded Amaechi as Rivers governor, is a sworn enemy of his predecessor. Several people in Rivers have been killed in political violence between supporters of the two politicians.
