Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has told his loyalist that he has braced up to accept the verdict from the appeal he filed at the Supreme Court challenging the annulment of his mandate at the Election Tribunal and the Appeal Court.
Wike also admonished all his political loyalists, especially members of the National Assembly and the state assembly who lost their mandates at elections Appeal Court never to condemn judges and the judgments of the courts of law simply because they did not favour them.
He said that it is wrong for politicians to hail judges and their judgments whenever they favour them and condemn whenever verdicts are unfavourable.
Wike then charged the state candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to be confident because they will still emerge victorious, citing the commitment of the party to the wellbeing of the people as their biggest arsenal.
He further declared that the people are waiting for the total deployment of Card Readers, saying that the defeated APC in Rivers state will not win any unit because the APC and its sponsors have since betrayed the people.
Wike’s optimism was expressed at the New Year Banquet, the first under his administration.
The ceremony attracted former governors, state and federal legislators, national and state party officials and critical stakeholders of Rivers state.
