Wike to Dakuku: Stop deceiving yourself, there’ll be no rerun in Rivers

Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers state, has advised the challenger to his seat, Dakuku Peterside, to wake up from self-deceit and snap out of any illusion that there’ll be a rerun of the state governorship election.
The Rivers State Election Tribunal had ruled that there should be a rerun of the elections in the state, but Wike has appealed the ruling, hence his continued stay as governor.
Speaking through his Media Assistant, Simeon Nwakaudu, on Tuesday, the governor said his lawyers were concluding the appeal process to challenge the ruling of the Justice Suleiman Ambrosa-led tribunal.
“The defeated Rivers State APC governorship candidate, Mr. Dakuku Peterside, should desist from self-deceit and unnecessary political campaigns as there will be no re-run of the governorship election in Rivers State.
“We understand the desperation of Mr. Peterside as he is merely dancing to the tunes being played by external forces who want their filthy hands on the resources of Rivers State like they did under the failed administration of Rotimi Amaechi.
“The people of Rivers State voted overwhelmingly for Governor Wike on April 11 and 12. The earlier Mr. Peterside comes to terms with this fact, the better for him and his political party.
“The use of falsehood and propaganda will not take Peterside anywhere near the Government House, Port Harcourt. Governor Wike has the mandate of the people of Rivers State and this will be reaffirmed in the appeal process.”
