The former  APC governorship candidate in rivers loudly heard by newsmen who were waiting to hear from him, on his way down from the staircase of the 3rd floor of the APC house, chanting ”they will bow, they will bow”.

A reliable source who was closed to Dakuku’s moment from one office to another, revealed that the two main issues why he visited the Secretariat was to thank the party leaders for his appointment and perfect plans against the Saturday re-run elections in his home state.

The NIMASA DG, who refused to speak with the press when approached also ignored cheers from the party members and staff of the APC Secretariat.

Dakuku, who was physically sober  when he led other APC leaders in Rivers state on a protest visit to the party requesting for an audience with President Muhammadu Buhari, was however, in joyful mood yesterday having being appointed DG NIMASA.
