The Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dakuku Peterside has said that Governor Nyesom Wike will lose the 2019 governorship election in Rivers State.
Peterside, while speaking in Opobo shortly after the local government congress of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said Rivers people were tired of the Wike-led administration and would therefore not hesitate to vote him out come 2019.
According to him, “I am confident that Rivers people are done with him (Wike), he has betrayed us, he has robbed us of our dignity, he has robbed us of our resources. Enough is enough.
“Let me repeat it again, on the 29th of May next year by 12 noon, APC will be in Government House, Port Harcourt. Governor Wike will have one of two options, option number one, go back to his village in Rumueprikom; option number two, he will be in prison. If I don’t have confidence that Rivers people want him out, I will not be saying so.”
He commended the party’s electoral officers, officials from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), police and other security agencies and party faithful for their matured handling of the local government congress.
