Wike’s victory is triumph of good over evil, says PDP

By Valentine Amanze

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described Governor Nyesom Wike’s victory at the Rivers State Governorship election as victory for the people and the triumph of good over evil.
The party said that Wike’s record 700,000 votes margin of victory over the combined anti-people forces of the All Progressives
Congress (APC) and the African Action Congress (AAC) and compromised security agencies speaks volume of the resilience of the people of Rivers State in the face of intimidation, harassment and manipulations
by oppressive forces.
The PDP, via its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said that the victory reinforced the confidence of the people in the resoluteness of asserting their democratic choice of leadership and standing in defence of their mandate to the end.
According to the party, the victory also demonstrated 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.
Besides, the party saluted and venerated all compatriots who were killed by
agents of the oppressors during the election.
“These compatriots did not die in vain and those who shed their innocent blood will surely be
brought to book,” it stated.
The PDP, however, 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 defeat to the enemies of the people.

It equally congratulated all PDP candidates, who won their elections at all
levels across the country and assured those pursuing their stolen mandates at the tribunals that the party was fully behind them, given that they all have watertight cases at the courts.
