This media learnt that the leadership of the All Progressives Congress was told clearly that over 20 of its Governors will loose their Seats because the instruction on the adherent to the use of card readers by the Independent National Electoral Commission was grously disobeyed by both the APC and the PDP during the conduct of the April governorship election accross the country.
PUO also gathered that the ugly development forced the minister of Transportation Mr Chibuike Amaechi to quickly return to Rivers State last Sunday to brief the Rivers State APC on the need to mobilise support so that the party can win huge amount of Assembly Seats should the Supreme Court uphold the election of Nyesom Wike on grounds that card readers cannot invalidate an election.
