In the heat of violence and shooting in Rivers State, the state governor, Nyesom Wike, who seeks re-election, says no man born of woman, or any size of gunboat, can stop his victory on March 9, 2019.
Gov Wike spoke in Government House on Thursday when the Socila Democratic Party (SDP) guber running mate, Christopher Udume, led others to decamp to the governor’s party, mere nine days to election.
Responding, Gov Wike said that his re-election has been secured by God and the good people of Rivers State. He said that with the defection of the SDPDeputy Governorship Candidate of SDP, the party no longer has a Governorship Candidate because of the constitutional requirement for election.
“God in his infinite mercies has given us victory. Nobody born of a woman can stop us from victory. It doesn’t matter the gunboats or armoured personnel carriers, God is with us.
“Anybody can plan against us, but you are planning against God. I cannot be afraid of any man because He who is with us, is greater than them”, he said.
The governor said all the schemes against elections in Rivers State will fail because the state is PDP.
Governor Wike thanked the former leaders of SDP in Rivers State for committing to peaceful elections in Rivers State. He urged other leaders to abandon negative destructive tendencies and join in the development of the State.
The Governor said though enemies of the state are not sleeping, they will continue to fail.
“Enemies of the state are not sleeping, but no power can bring this state down. God is working for this state. What you have done is in the interest of the State”.
