Wike's Claim to Rivers Governorship Won't Stand – Peterside

Listen to article

BEVERLY HILLS, April 21, (THEWILL) – The Greater Together Campaign Organisation, GTCO, the Campaign organisation of the Rivers All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Dr. Dakuku Peterside, said it has concurred to the prayer of Mr. Nyesom Wike of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, that in the case of the governorship of election, God would complete what He had begun.

Wike made the reference to God during a celebratory feast organised by the PDP in Port Harcourt after he was presented with certificate of return by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, on Monday.

But in a statement signed by Ibim Semenitari, GTCO Director of Communications , the campaign outfit noted that Wike's claim to the governorship of Rivers State is built on faulty foundation and so cannot stand.

“We consider Wike's wishful prayer that God should complete what He had begun an aberration and insult to good conscience. But for us, since we believe that God thrives on justice, Wike's prayer will certainly add to the speedy recovery of the mandate robbed off Rivers people through the barrels of gun and pellets of bullets,” the statement said.

“Aside Wike's immoral claims, we were appalled at the calibre of guests we sighted at that gathering. We saw alleged murderers, suspected kidnappers, ballot box snatchers and all sundry criminals dancing on the graves of those they killed.”

The campaign outfit cautioned Wike against a short-lived celebration, saying it has no doubt that justice will prevail at the end of the race in the true spirit of his prayer. “While Wike and his cohorts celebrate, we suggest caution as we hold a strong conviction that justice will prevail and the mandate he is parading retrieved,” GTCO said.
