Appeal Court Verdict On Rivers Legislative Seats: It’s Time Up For Wike – APC


BY AMOS DUNIA, ABUJA – The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Thursday said with the victory of Senators Andrew Uchendu, Magnus Abe and all its candidates for the House of Representatives and State House of Assembly at the Court of Appeal, Governor Nyesom Wike does not need any soothsayer to know that it is time up for him as far as the politics of Rivers State is concerned.

The Rivers APC, in a statement by its Chairman, Chief Davies Ibiamu Ikanya expressed gladness and thanks to God for the victories recorded by the party’s candidates in their cases at the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja.

Ikanya said the ruling of the Appeal Court has validated and upheld the verdict of the electorates in Rivers State that voted overwhelmingly for the APC candidates by declaring Senator Andrew Uchendu as the rightful winner of the 2016 National Assembly rerun for the Rivers East Senatorial District.

He said with the victory of Uchendu, who is a proven lawmaker, the party is now well positioned to kick start the formal sack of Governor Nyesom Wike from the Brick House come 2019.

The party also expressed joy over the victories of Senator Magnus Abe, representing Rivers South East Senatorial District and all its members in the House of Representatives and State House of Assembly in their various cases in the Court of Appeal.

Ikanya further said; “With these victories we need not tell Nigerians that the APC is truly the main political party in Rivers State and not the dying PDP as postulated by Governor Wike and his cohorts.

“We urge all our victorious elected representatives to toe the principles of our leader, Rt. Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and give both the State and nation the required direction in their various areas of operations.

“With this development, Senators George Sekibo and Olaka Nwogu the two sleeping Senators that couldn’t initiate any single bill throughout their miserable stay in the Senate can now comfortably retire from politics to enable them have enough time to sleep as much as they can and allow those that can give the State the required representation to do so accordingly.”
