The Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike whose election was recently nullified by the tribunal has said in spite of the ruling of the State Election Petitions Tribunal, he will complete his 4-year tenure as the chief executive of the state. Wike made this known while speaking to a crowd that gathered for a thanksgiving service at the Obi Wali International Conference Centre in Port Harcourt on Sunday.
In his remarks, Wike said,“We will win and I will complete my 4-year tenure as the governor of Rivers State. The thanksgiving service today is very significant because if what enemies planned had work, I wouldn’t have been governor today. The nullification of my election by tribunal sitting in Abuja shows that justice is ours. I am surprised that some people are celebrating over the judgement, when they described the judgement against their candidates at the National Assembly as judicial 419.
“It is now that they have confidence in judiciary. In spite of the judgement, we still have hope in the judiciary. I want to beg you, don’t be provoked; I know what happened at the weekend is provoking. But, I know what their plans are; that was why I am begging you to be calm”.
