The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress APC has expressed gladness and thanks to God Almighty for the victories of her candidates in their various cases in the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja that upheld the verdict of the electorates in Rivers State that voted overwhelmingly for our candidates by declaring Senator Andrew Uchendu of the All Progressive Congress(APC) as the rightful winner of the 2016 National Assembly Rerun for Rivers East Senatorial District.
APC in a statement signed by its State Chairman, Chief (Dr.) Davies Ibiamu Ikanya and signed by its media aide Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze on Thursday said Uchendu’s victory has kick started the formal sack of Governor Nyesom Wike from the Brick House come 2019.
The party also appreciates the victories of Senator Magnus Abe representing the South East Senatorial District and all their members in the State House of Assembly and House of Representatives in their various cases in the Court of Appeal.
The statement said that these victories is an indication that APC is truly the main political party in Rivers State and not the dying PDP as postulated by Governor Wike and his cohorts.
The party commended and congratulated both Senators Andrew Uchendu, Magnus Abe and all her successful candidates in the State House of Assembly and the House of Representatives that were successful in their cases and request them to toe the principles of their leader, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and give both the State and nation the required direction in their various areas of operations.
Ikanya however advised Senators George Sekibo and Olaka Nwogu to retire from politics to enable them have enough time to sleep as much as they can and allow those that can give the State the required representation to do so accordingly.
They prayed to God to continue to guide and uphold him in all his efforts to give the South South region and country the required politically direction.
