In a statement through the Cole/Giadom Campaign Organisation, displaced Cole said, his governorship support base would spare nothing in ensuring hat ACC’s Awara emerges next governor of Rivers.

Cole, in the statement signed by Ogbonna Nwuke, Spokesperson to the campaign organisation, said, “We have considered all options before us and we are convinced that Awara is eminently qualified in every respect to govern Rivers.

‘Rivers needs someone who is level headed, cultured and focused to serve as governor. We have found these qualities in Awara. Government House shouldn’t be allowed to turn into the abode of men who behave like touts.

“All candidates, including the gubernatorial candidate of APC, Cole were part of the decision to support Awara of the AAC. Rotimi Amaechi is Leader of the APC, but this was not his personal decision. The decision to back Awara was made by the entire leadership of the party after serious and far reaching deliberations.

“We are determined to kick Governor Wike out of Government House, and we shall spare nothing in our arsenal to ensure that he is defeated through the ballot box.”
