Former Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to Rivers State governor, Mr Opunabo Nko-Tariah has declared support for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Dr Dakuku Peterside and the Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi.
Inko Tariah who a few months ago was an irrepressible critic of Amaechi,APC and Peterside said in a statement in Port Harcourt that he was poised to assist Peterside and APC wrest power from Governor Nyesom Wike if the Supreme Court orders for a rerun governorship election in the state.
Inko-Tariah in a statement today, in Port Harcourt, said he was in support of Peterside because he had seen the need for change.
He said: “Some persons may ask why I am supporting Peterside. It is simple. There comes a time when time itself needs change. For me this is that time.”
He promised to work for Peterside’s victory if the Supreme Court orders a re-run election in the state, expressing the hope that Peterside will put smiles on the faces of people of the state.
