Awara Biokpomabo, who is the governorship aspirant of the AAC in Rivers, was endorsed by Rotimi Ameachi, Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation, following the disqualification of the All Progressives Congress from fielding candidate for the state elections.

Although, the national leadership of the AAC distanced itself from the endorsement, the endorsement no doubt contributed to the huge number the nascent party polled in some LGA in the state.

Also, the party won in the governorship election in Ikwerre LGA, of the state having polled 96,663 to dwarf PDP’s 7,554.
