If They Like, Let them Bring The American Marines or the American Navy Seals, PDP Will win in Rivers State -Wike


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has  declared  that  no matter the level of militarization  of the  political  space in the state, the  Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  will continue  to  win elections  in  the state.

Addressing  the leadership  of  the  PDP  who paid him a solidarity  visit at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Monday,  Governor  Wike  said Rivers State is a traditional  PDP  state.

He said: “Rivers  State  is a traditional  PDP  State. If they like, let them bring the American  Marines or the American Navy Seals, PDP  will win in Rivers  State.

“I hear they are all in Abuja. All we want is free and fair elections.  We are ready for the elections.  They should not do the elections to massage  the ego of an individual.

“You don’t dash mandate. You don’t allocate mandate. The people  must be allowed to choose who they will give their mandate to”.

He urged INEC  to always work towards elections  in the state to further deepen democracy.

“We are willing to support INEC  and all security  agencies to conduct  peaceful  elections.  The APC  leaders claimed that there were no elections, are today asking the tribunals to declare them winners of the elections”, he said.

The governor  said  that  the  Rivers State PDP Executives have ensured that the party remains strong in the state, emerging  victorious  at different  elections.

At the national  level, Governor  Wike  said  that PDP  will emerge stronger from the current crisis  .

Earlier,  Rivers State PDP Chairman,  Bro Felix Obuah said that Governor Wike has justified the Peoples Mandate.

He said that the people of  Rivers State are happy  with  Governor Wike for the work he is doing despite the economic  downturn.
