Rivers State Governor, Rt.Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi,  on Friday credited God for his victory in the case brought against election by Celestine Omehia at the Supreme Court.

The governor also  thanked the apex court for handling the matter judiciously and Rivers people for their continued support after emerging victorious over Celestine Omehia at the Supreme Court.

In a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. David Iyofor, Amaechi said the the court ruling vindicated his position  that Omehia had no case against him.

He ,however, extended the hands of fellowship to Omehia and all people of Rivers State, saying that  there was no victor, no vanquished in this matter.

The governor said the apex court ruling provides a new opportunity for everyone to join hands with his administration in the development of Rivers State and the advancement of Rivers people.

'Today's judgement once again shows that God is with us. And as God has put us to oversee the affairs of Rivers state, we will continue to do it diligently and tirelessly to better the lives of our people and develop the state.

'We will rededicate and focus more on administering good governance to the people of the state, and ensure that our people continue to enjoy the dividends of democracy'

Amaechi called on Celestine Omehia, his supporters and all well-meaning Rivers people to join hands with his administration and work together towards the greater good of the state and its people.

'Now that the legal tussle is over, I want to appeal to Omehia, his supporters and all other well meaning Rivers people to join hands with my administration in building the new Rivers state that my administration has started. As for me, in this matter there is no victor, no vanquished,'
