Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike has rescinded his initial decision on the use of Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium for the Peoples Democratic Party's presidential campaign.

According to Daily Trust, Wike made a u-turn and granted access to the location to the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar.

Recall that the governor has earlier revoked access to the venue to the PDP campaign council.

Speaking at the PDP rally at Ogu town in Ogu-bolo local government area of the state, the Rivers state governor said he had accepted that the rally should hold at the venue on February 11.

His words: “This morning after an appeal from people who talked to me, I gave them back Adokiye Amiesimaka. "Go and campaign. Let it not be that because they didn’t campaign that is why they didn’t win in Rivers State."
