Wike, Not Peterside Insulted Ex-Gov. Odili And His Wife – APC

Dakuku Peterside-Nyesom WikeThe All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has denied allegation by its Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart that its governorship candidate in the 2015 elections in the state, Dr. Dakuku Peterside, insulted former governor of the state, Dr. Peter Odili, following the judgment of the Supreme Court that upheld the election of Governor Nyesom Wike.
The APC alleged that it was Wike who indirectly insulted the ex-governor and his wife, Justice Mary Odili, by dropping their names while holding discussions with his associates, who in turn, took the names dropping to public space with its attendant negative perception.
The party in a statement issued in Port Harcourt yesterday by its publicity secretary, Chris Finebone, said Peterside only made a mere reference to the public statement of Wike at a church thanksgiving service at Saint Peter’s Anglican Church, Rumueprikom, Port Harcourt.
Finebone urged the PDP and its state chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah, to compel the governor to apologise to Odili and his wife, who is a Justice of the Supreme Court, for needlessly dropping their names while holding formal and informal discussions with friends and associates.
He said, “The APC would like to ask Felix Obuah and the PDP: Where lies the insult on Dr. Peter Odili and his wife in the reference Dr. Peterside made to Governor Wike’s public comment?
“Indeed, if anyone indirectly insulted the former governor and his wife, it is Governor Nyesom Wike because of his unwarranted verbal incontinence, drunken boasts and dropping of names of the former governor and his wife while holding discussions with his associates. Some of these same associates of Governor Nyesom Wike, in turn, take the names dropped by the Governor to public space with its attendant negative perception”.
The Rivers APC spokesman further said, “The Rivers State APC would like to urge Felix Obuah and the PDP to compel Governor Wike to apologise to Dr. Peter Odili and Justice Mary Odili for woefully failing to exercise discretion in his public utterances and needlessly dropping their names while holding formal and informal discussions with friends and associates”.
