The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has made it clear that the people of the state, will never have a sole administrator.

Wike also insisted that the people voted for their preferred candidate during the March 9 elections and must have a Governor.

The Governor stated this on Friday, as 86 political parties conceded defeat to him in the state governorship election, during a solidarity visit to the Government House in Port Harcourt.

“No matter how it might be delayed, Rivers State will have an elected governor.

“It is not the portion of Rivers State to have a sole administrator. Our people voted on March 9 and Rivers votes will count,” Wike said.

Governor Wike said that when the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is declared the winner of the state governorship elections, he would operate a government of unity.

“If we are declared the winner of the election, we will operate a government of unity. “We will rally everybody together in the interest of the state,” he added.
