Port Harcourt—Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike is boasting of a successful outcome for the Peoples Democratic Party in next year’s general elections, adding that the party will win all elective positions in the State.
Channels Television reports that Governor Wike stated this during a thanksgiving service and dedication of the PDP campaigns in the state.
He clarified that the thanksgiving and dedication service is for the state level elections, saying the party’s campaign in the state will be made easier following his administration’s achievements.
Governor Wike also defended his decision to sign executive orders on the use of public facilities for campaigns and his party’s decision to challenge the conduct of primaries by opposition parties.
The governor further urged leaders of the Church not to allow politicians to draw the body of Christ into politics, especially with the campaign against same faith ticket.
He said while he is not a proponent of a same faith ticket, those campaigning against such should equally condemn the plan to retain the presidency in one geopolitical zone as against the spirit of equity, fairness and justice.
