Rivers election: PDP reacts to Wike’s victory, taunts Amaechi

By - - [ ]

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Thursday described Governor Nyesom Wike’s victory at the Rivers State Governorship election as a victory for the people of the state and the “triumph of good over evil.”

PDP said the victory enforced the confidence of the people’s resoluteness to hold on to democracy and to defend their choice of leaders, despite the alleged desperation of the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.

In a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP said Wike’s record of “700,000 votes margin of victory over the combined anti-people forces of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the African Action Congress (AAC) and compromised security agencies speaks volume of the resilience of the people of Rivers State in the face of intimidation, harassment and manipulations by oppressive forces.”

“The victory reinforces the confidence of the people in the resoluteness of asserting their democratic choice of leadership as well as standing in defence of their mandate to the end.

“It also demonstrates that the will of the people will always prevail against every form of suppression as were eminently manifested in the desperation by the APC leaders, particularly, the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, to forcefully and violently take over control of the state against the wish of the people.”

PDP also commended and “venerates all compatriots who were killed by agents of the oppressors during the election. These compatriots did not die in vain and those who shed their innocent blood will surely be brought to book.”

“We commend Governor Wike, the people of Rivers State and all lovers of democracy across the board for standing firm until the very end to hand this disgraceful defeat to the enemies of the people.

“PDP congratulates all our candidates, who won their elections at all levels across the country and assures those pursuing their stolen mandates at the tribunals that the party is fully behind them, given that they all have watertight cases at the courts.”
