Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike says no matter the conspiracy against the state the will of Rivers people shall prevail because they spoke eloquently with their votes during the last election expressing their preference for the Peoples Democratic Party.
Governor Wike made the declaration when he received the newly elected members of the National Assembly on the platform of the PDP who visited him at government house ,Port Harcourt to present their INEC Certificates of Return to him.
The newly elected members of the national assembly were led on the visit by the State chairman of the PDP Felix Obuah who said they acknowledge the support of governor Wike to them during the election and have come to pay him due respect.
Governor Wike expressed confidence that the PDP won the elections in the state and Rivers people proofed that they love peace, did not resort to self help and enjoined them to continue to be calm as INEC carries out its duties following due process.
The governor who described the political standoff as a mere drama following the several attempts by the antidemocratic elements to snatch results at the various Collation Centres in the state, thanked Rivers people for staying with the PDP.
Governor Wike said the state has 13 House of Representatives seats and has won all of them, has three senatorial seats and has won one that had been declared awaiting the other two seats.
He stated that it is unimaginable for people to think that PDP lost the governorship election to a party and candidate that was never known politically in the state because the PDP has already won about eight percent of the entire elective positions in the state.
Governor Wike told the newly elected National Assembly members to work for the interest of the state above other considerations saying that those who plotted the killings of Rivers people to advance their selfish will face the consequences of their actions.
Senator-elect Barry Mpigi said Rivers people are confident that governor Wike will be declared winner of the election because the votes from the field cannot be altered.
