The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is obviously still celebrating the victory of Governor Nyesom Wike in the just-concluded Rivers governorship election, and they described the victory as a victory for the people of Rivers State and the triumph of good over evil.
Speaking on the development, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, said the governor’s record 700,000 votes margin of victory over is a pointer to “the disgraced combined anti-people forces of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the African Action Congress (AAC) and compromised security agencies,” dropped a big hint in regards to how resilient the people of Rivers State are in the face of intimidation and harassment oppressive forces.
Ologbondiyan said all efforts by Rotimi Amaechi were neutralised by the PDP.
According to him, the victory reinforced the confidence of the people in the resoluteness of asserting their democratic choice of leadership as well as standing in defence of their mandate to the end.
“It also demonstrates that the will of the people will always prevail against every form of suppression as were eminently manifested in the desperation by the APC leaders, particularly, the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, to forcefully and violently take over control of the state against the wish of the people,” he said.
The leadership of the People’s Democratic Party saluted those who lost their lives during the election, and it assured that their death won’t be in vain, but they will get justice by bringing to book those who shed their blood.
The party also commended Governor Wike, the people of Rivers State and all lovers of democracy across the board for standing firm until the very end “to hand this disgraceful defeat to the enemies of the people.”
