… Says Declared Results Show Wike Is Clear Winner

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) hails the Federal High Court, for
saving our democratic process by throwing out the suit by
anti-democratic forces working for the All Progressives Congress (APC),
in their desperate plot to scuttle the collation of results of the March
9, 2019 Rivers State Governorship election.

The PDP describes the ruling as well as the on-going collation as the
triumph of the will of the people of Rivers State, who freely gave their
mandate to the PDP and its candidate, Governor Nyesom Wike.

The party notes that the sweeping victory being recorded by Govenor
Wike, even in areas hitherto considered as opposition fortresses,
clearly exposes the reason behind APC’s desperation to scuttle the
collation process.

More over, the court ruling rekindles the hope by Nigerians on the
capacity of the judiciary to uphold the will of the people,
particularly, in the overall quest by Nigerians to reclaim the
Presidential mandate, which they freely gave to the PDP Candidate, Atiku
Abubakar, at the February 23, 2019 Presidential polls.

The PDP notes that it has a water-tight case against the APC and
President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Election Petition
tribunal, for which majority of Nigerians, across the board, are in high
spirit that the stolen mandate would be recovered at the Tribunal.

The PDP therefore charges INEC to ensure that nothing encumbers the
conclusion of the collation process and announcement of Governor Wike as
the rightful winner of the Rivers governorship election.

The party also directs its members and supporters in Rivers state to
continue to be at alert to forestall any attempt by anti-democratic
forces, working for the APC, to disrupt the exercise.
