ALL Progressives Congress in Rivers State has adopted the governorship candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Awara Biokpomabo, for the March 9th governorship election in the state.
The state Publicity Secretary of the party, Chris Finebone, confirmed this in a voice message made available to some journalists in Port Harcourt yesterday.
The decision to back the AAC governorship candidate, it was gathered, was taken after a meeting led by the leader of the APC in the state.
It will be recalled that the APC in Rivers State will not field any candidate in the governorship election following a Federal High Court judgment that ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to remove the party from the ballot.
Biokpomabo is from the ancient kingdom of Kula in Akuku Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State.
