Supreme Court judgment: Amaechi will continue to fail – Wike

Nyesom Wike has declared that even if the former Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Amaechi was allowed to choose all the panels to handle political cases involving the state, he will continue to fail.

He also stated that all the gang up against Rivers State will continue to fail because God defends the state.

He spoke on Tuesday at the Government House Port Harcourt Chapel of Everlasting Grace during a Thanksgiving Service after the Supreme Court judgment that declared him qualified to contest the 2019 Rivers State Governorship Election.

Recall that the Apex Court on Monday struck out a suit challenging the eligibility of Wike to contest the 2019 gubernatorial election.

According to him: “If you know what Amaechi has been doing, then you will know that God is with us. He wants to constitute all panels. They should allow him to appoint all panels, but he will fail.

“God will continue to do it for us. We have faith in God. All the gang up against us will fail. Please continue to support and pray for Rivers State.”

Wike said that since 2015, Amaechi has been working round the clock to disrupt the democratic process in Rivers State.

According to him, Amaechi has continued to fail because God is with the state and Rivers people believe in his leadership.

“Amaechi has done everything possible to make sure that we don’t remain here but nobody can play God.

“In 2015, we won elections and they did everything to destabilise the state. They said that we won in 2015 because of Jonathan. They nullified almost all the State Assembly and National Assembly elections. We had several rerun elections and Rivers people voted overwhelmingly for the PDP.

“In 2019, we witnessed when the Former Minister of Transportation sang war songs in the presence of the President. People became afraid. The Presidential and National Assembly elections came and we won all the seats. We were not in power at the Federal level. We didn’t have security agencies, but we won. Then it came to the Governorship election, they used money and security Services against us, but we won.”

Wike maintained that he has no fear despite the evil machinations of his predecessor and his cohorts, because God is on the side of Rivers State.

He noted that: “You have lost, you have lost. All you need to do is to prepare for the next elections. If elections are conducted 2million times in Rivers State, PDP will continue to win.”
