(By Iheanyi Ezinwo)-The leadership of Wike Solidarity Movement, WSM, has congratulated Governor of Rivers State, Barr. Ezenwo Nyesom Wike, over his victory at the 2019 Election Petition Tribunal.
Speaking with newsmen in his Abuja residence, Hon. Gabriel Pidomson, who is Chairman, Board of Trustees of the WSM, described the good news in favour of Governor Wike of the Peoples Democratic Party, from the tribunal, over the petition of the governorship candidate of African Action Congress, AAC, as ” Victory for Rivers People”.
Hon. Pidomson, a stalwart of the Peoples Democratic Party and former member of the Rivers State House of Assembly, expressed satisfaction with the judiciary, describing the officials as “Men of Integrity,” who will always go the extra mile to do what is right no matter whose ox is gored.
The former Secretary to the Rivers state Government said ” Governor Wike’s victory signifies the hand of God in Rivers State; no wonder Governor’s repeated insistence that Rivers is a Christian state, without fear or favour, and owes no one apologies”
Hon. Pidomson further explained that Wike has shown capacity and deserves a second term to consolidate on the development initiatives which characterised his first term. He called on the petitioner at the tribunal and candidate of AAC, Awara Biokpomabo, to join hands with Governor Wike to build the Rivers state of our dreams.
The WSM Board of Trustees chairman also appreciated Rivers People for boldly protecting their votes, which eventually led to Wike’s historic victory inspite of intimidations from those who wanted to use ‘’federal might’ to subvert the will of the majority of the peaceful citizens of the state.
Dr. Pidomson admonished the National Executive Council, and the entire members of the Wike Solidarity Movement to keep hope alive, just as he pledged the continued loyalty of WSM to the government of Rivers State as well as its developmental programmes, assuring that their loyalty and labour would be rewarded.
