Outcome Of Edo Guber Election Disgraces Gov. Wike—Senator Abe
All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Rivers South East Senatorial District in the legislative re-run election, Senator Magnus Abe has said that the outcome of the Edo State governorship election has disgraced Gov. Nyesom Wike, who went to Gokana Local Government Area to celebrate his anticipated victory of PDP in the election.
Speaking at the Rivers South East Senatorial District APC rally at Ngo School 11 field, Ngo town in Andoni Local Government Area, Abe said that Gov. Wike invested more than N3 billion from the lean resources of the state to support the PDP in Edo State.
He said it was in anticipation of such victory that he chose to go to Gokana LGA, the home local government of Senator Abe in order to ridicule him and assure his people that Nigerians were beginning to vote out APC.
Abe said that Wike disguised his intention by claiming to flag off the Kpopie-Bodo road in Gokana LGA, which had almost been completed by the last administration.
He said what was needed was not to flag off the reconstruction of the road but to complete the payment to the contractor to enable him complete the little portion that was left of the road.
Abe said unfortunately, divine providence was against him (Wike) and would continue to be against him as PDP lost in Edo State, thereby frustrating his intentions in Gokana LGA.
He said while this happened that he (Abe) had a joyful political rally in Andoni Local Government Area.
”He was thinking he would be in Gokana and they will announce the results of Edo and he will be dancing there. He set up his canopy and we took our own canopy to Andoni land. Both of us were waiting for the news and what was the news? APC won. God will continue to disgrace them. He goes about lying, deceiving people, causing violence, wasting money. Money that we could have used to pay salaries, work on the Obolo road, pay pensions of Rivers people, he packed all the money to Edo State and went to Gokana to go and wait for the result. He doesn't know that the things that God can do, money cannot undo them.
“My problem with the Governor is that he plays politics with everything. He plays politics with education, health, politics with politics, roads etc. The reason he was in Gokana today is because he thought that the money they had sent to Edo will bring the result they anticipated. And so, he went to Gokana to go and celebrate over the victory that he thought he had paid for. He didn't know that the people of Edo State cannot be bought.
“If they want to reconstruct a road, is it on live television that you need to go and flag off the reconstruction of a road that is fully in use? He is playing politics with everything and as usual God in His infinite mercies has disgraced him and his politics today. So, the happiest group of Nigerians today is not the people of Edo State. It is the people of Rivers State who now know that it is possible to actually have a contest of PVC against PVC, not PVC against Ak47. And that in a contest of PVC against PVC, the All Progressives Congress (APC) will win”.
The former Secretary to the Rivers State Government urged the people of Rivers South East Senatorial District to ignore the antics of Gov. Wike and continue to support APC in order to make a statement that they are solidly in appreciation of the UNEP report implementation in the district and other developmental projects they would benefit from APC.
Among the APC stalwarts that attended the rally were; Hon. Dakuku Adol Peterside, Director-General, NIMASA and former APC candidate in the 2015 Governorship election, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, State Chairman, APC, Hon. Asita O. Asita, former Deputy Gubernatorial candidate in 2015 election, Chief Victor Giadom, Engr. Sampson Ngerebara, Hon. Befii Nwile, former Deputy Speaker, Rivers State House of Assembly, Hon. Maureen Tamuno and Hon. Emma Deeyah.
