Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has described the judgment of the Supreme Court that affirmed the electoral victory of Rivers State Governor, Mr Nyesom Wike, as a step by the judiciary to free itself from the clutches of desperate politicians who want to ambush the judicial arm of government.
Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti, the governor said the apex court, by its decision, had shown that all hope was not lost as far as the judiciary was concerned.
Fayose lauded the people of Rivers State for solidly standing behind Wike and the governor for remaining steadfast in the face of serious provocation.
He thanked members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state and Nigeria at large for not caving in to pressure.
“I rejoice with Governor Wike that his God-given mandate that some people wanted to take through the back door has been restored and the evil doers put to shame.
I must commend the Supreme Court for living up to expectation and letting Nigerians know that all hope is not lost.
This should teach those who believe they can reap where they did not sow that in the end, a Daniel will come to judgment,” he said.
