In preparation for the upcoming elections, the major opposition party, All Progressives Congress, APC, is presently holding its Mega rally in Rivers state, and the mammoth crowd shows the party’s support base in the state.
It’s a full house as all APC leaders, party chieftains and faithfuls, and thousands of supporters are present at the Adokiye Amiesimaka stadium in Greater Port Harcourt City.
The host Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, has led majority of the state National Assembly members to the rally, which is being showed live on Channels and NTA, with viewers accusing the latter television station of muting the audio intermittently.
Read Twitter reactions.
