THE Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, has described what transpired during the Ekiti governorship election as the worst political robbery in the nation’s democratic history.
Wike said the APC Federal Government would not be able to replicate the “Ekiti political robbery” in Rivers State because people of the state were fully prepared.
He spoke on Sunday at the Anglican Cathedral Church of Saint Paul, Port Harcourt, during the thanksgiving service to mark the end of Third Year Anniversary Celebration of his administration.
“Don’t be worried about what happened in Ekiti State. We are prepared. It will not happen here in Rivers State. I have never experienced that kind of robbery in politics.
“I told my colleagues, do not give them any chance. Most of them in APC are happy that they will repeat the same thing in Rivers State, we are waiting; come and repeat. Let your spirit not be down, work hard and victory will be ours,” he added.
Speaking on the thanksgiving, Wike said that the state government had come before God to appreciate him for a hitch-free programme, which spread across two months
He said that the third year anniversary of his administration offered Rivers people the opportunity to witness the superlative performance over the period under the review.
“We made sure that people, who have eyes, see what we have done for the state. Except those who are blind, for which there is nothing we can do about it.
“We will continue to do the best for the people of Rivers State. The people deserve the best. This one year we will not stop doing projects, irrespective of the elections”.
