Rivers State Governor-elect, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has allayed the fears of his opponents, especially outgoing Governor Rotimi Amaechi of witch-hunt when he assumes office on May 29.
Wike, who dedicated his landslide victory over the All Progressives Congress, APC rival and political godson of Amaechi, Hon. Dakuku Peterside, at the poll to the people, promised to lead an all-inclusive government.
He said: “In the governorship and House of Assembly elections, nobody lost, all of us won, and may I use this opportunity to invite our brothers and sisters in the other party, to join hands with us to make the state compete with Lagos in greatness, or even greater.”
The governor-elect extended his hand of fellowship to the Amaechi camp yesterday in Port Harcourt during the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP special victory service. He noted that Rivers had won the election and pledged that his administration would not witch-hunt anybody, but would rather work harder to build a new Rivers State.
Wike further promised to reopen the courts and the entire judiciary shut by Amaechi to ensure speedy dispensation of justice, adding that as the governor of the state, he would respect the judiciary and the legislature for stable democracy.
The elated governor-elect, who declared that his administration would not depart from the presence of God, observed that the victory was an indication that God was with the people of the state.
He said: “We shall not discriminate against anybody or party, but will carry all along, after all competition is the beauty of democracy. We are all Rivers people and we shall work as one united family.”
Responding to questions from journalists, the state PDP Chairman, Mr. Felix Obuah stated that the party’s victory in the state at both the presidential and governorship elections was a manifestation of the people’s choice.
Obuah reiterated his confidence in the governor-elect to carry all along for a greater Rivers.
The event was attended by the PDP Deputy National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus; Deputy Governor, Tele Ikuru, Senator George Thompson Sekibo, Minister of Sports, Dr. Tammy Danagogo, Senators- elect, Speaker, Rivers House of Assembly among others.
