Chairman of the Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Davies Ibiamu, has expressed gladness over the victories of the party’s candidates at the Appeal Court, saying Governor Wike is next to be ousted.
The court on Thursday, dismissed an appeal filed by Senator George Sekibo, challenging the judgment of the Rivers State Election Tribunal which sacked him as Senator.
It declared Senator Andrew Uchendu of the APC as the rightful winner of the 2016 National Assembly Rerun for Rivers East Senatorial District.
Reacting, APC said “With Uchendu’s victory, we are convinced that he will kick start the formal sack of Governor Nyesom Wike from the Brick House come 2019”.
The party also appreciated the victories of Senator Magnus Abe representing the South East Senatorial District as well as triumph of its members in the State House of Assembly and House of Representatives in their various cases in the Court of Appeal.
”With these victories, we need not tell Nigerians that APC truly is the main political party in Rivers State and not the dying PDP as postulated by Governor Wike and his cohorts. Nobody needs to tell Wike that it is time up for him so far the politics of Rivers State is concerned.
The party further urged its elected office holders ”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 do so accordingly.”
