APC National Leadership Should Forget About Rigging in Rivers State says Governor Wike


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike  has  advised  the  APC National Leadership  to forget about rigging in Rivers State  as the people will always resist  their evil machinations.



The governor also stated that Rivers State remains a PDP  State where the people are satisfied  with  his development  strides which  revived the state after the immediate past APC administration squandered state resources without  tangible development.

Speaking at a Special Thanksgiving Service  and dedication  of awards bestowed  on him by the Christian Association of Nigeria, Sun Newspapers, Authority Newspapers  and Independent Newspapers on Sunday  at the Saint Paul's Anglican Cathedral, Governor Wike  regretted that APC  leaders continue to fight against  Rivers State  to the extent of trying to stop Sun Newspapers  from  enthroning  him as Sun Governor of the Year, 2016.


Governor Wike said: "They should  forget about  this  state. No matter  the level  of  security force, they will not be able  to snatch  Rivers State ".

He, however, commended the security agencies  who covered the Etche/ Omuma Federal Constituency elections  for being professional , despite the pressure  from the APC  National Leadership.

He also lauded INEC  for standing  firm for the first time. He noted that INEC  attempted  to redeem  its battered image  with the Etche/ OmumaFederal Constituency Election and the Etche State Constituency Election.

According to him:  "Whenever a free and fair election  is conducted in Rivers State, PDP will win. There is no other party here in Rivers State. "

On his superlative performance, Governor Wike  stated that his delivery  of  pro-people projects  stems from  the  fact that he is focused  despite  the  distractions  from the Federal Government and her agencies.

He said that the progressive  development  of Rivers State  is a function of determined application  of  scarce resources.

The governor said: "Some many  APC  leaders from Rivers State  are very bitter that we are succeeding  where they  failed. They got between N23billion and N27billion monthly  , but have  nothing on ground  to show for their  8 years in government.

"We get between N6billion and N7billion during a period of recession, yet we have  transformed  Rivers State.  By the time  we finish  our first term, Rivers people  will  know the true meaning of good governance ", he said.

He commended  political leaders, Rivers State House of Assembly and other stakeholders  for supporting  the success  of his administration.
