Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike has expressed confidence of being victorious in the Rivers State governorship election, despite the suspension of electoral processes in the state by INEC.
In a series of tweets on Friday, the governor attributed his optimism to the love he said the residents of the state have for the Peoples Democratic Party PDP.
He, however, appealed to the people not to be disturbed by the recent happenings in the state but remain peaceful at all times.
“I know that PDP won the elections squarely. We believe in peace. Therefore, Rivers people should remain calm,” Wike said.
“We believe in due process. I believe that INEC is doing their best to follow the due process,” he added.
He went on to tweet that, “In the end, it will be a sweet victory. The will of Rivers people will prevail. Let me thank the people of Rivers State for the love they have shown for our great party.
“It is not in doubt that Rivers people have shown our party love. What is happening is sad. It is a drama.”
The governor, who received the newly-elected members of the House of Representatives from Rivers State, noted that his party recorded a landslide victory in the general elections in the state.
He affirmed that his re-election was sure, stressing that none of his challengers had the strength to pull the population of supporters he had.
The governor further dedicated PDP’s victory in Rivers to God and the people of the state who he said stood firm against manipulating their mandate.
He also urged the National Assembly members-elect to always place the interest of the people above other considerations as they represent the state.
