Rivers State governor Barr Nyesom Wike said the verdict of Seven Member Supreme Court Panel of Justices which on 27th January upheld his election as the governor of Rivers State saved him from planned arrest and demoralization of PDP members by the Leadership of the APC.
Governor Wike revealed this yesterday during his thanksgiving service in appreciation to God for using the APC court to stop what he termed a grand conspiracy by the APC to take over Rivers State.
Wike also disclose that the reason behind the sudden shifting of the ealier scheduled National and State Assembly rerun by INEC was because the rulling of the APC court shattered the plots by the APC in Rivers State to rig the election through Federal Might.
“They fixed re-run elections for 6th of February with hope that Supreme court will send me away on 27th of January, they have perfected plan to arrest me on Wednesday 28th of January just to demoralise PDP members in rivers state so that they will be able to use federal might to win all senate, house of reps and state house of assembly seats in favour of APC. But when Supreme Court upheld my election, they felt disappointed and INEC shifted rerun elections. I called INEC chairman in Abuja that why did you shift the rerun elections, Professor Mahmud was only stammering with filmsy excuse. I challenged him that Rivers people are ready and that he should let election take place as planned. That is to further tell you their calculated plan on Rivers State, but God disappointed them” the governor stated.
Former Firstlady Patience Jonathan,Governors of Abia,Akwa Ibom and Bayelsa states were all in attendance
