The All Progressives Congress, APC, Rivers State chapter, has declared that Governor Nyesom Wike will not escape judgment in the hands of God and the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
A statement yesterday in Port Harcourt, the state capital, by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, media aide to the Rivers APC Chairman, Dr. Davies Ikanya, said the “caretaker” governor (Wike) could only run but would not be able to hide.
APC said: “…Almighty God will certainly judge him and so too will the Muhammadu Buhari administration, which does not brook any illegality”.
The party was apparently reacting to Wike’s statement at a thanksgiving service held at The Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministry in Port Harcourt on Sunday, where he declared that God would disgrace those plotting to truncate the mandate “freely” given to him by people of the state.
Rivers APC said: “We wonder which God Chief Wike is referring to that will disgrace those opposing his illegal government. As much as we praise those that are trying to make a Christian out of Wike overnight, we in Rivers State know very well his religious inclination. We wish to tell him that the God we know is a God of righteousness, who can never be on the side of those engaging in criminality…
“We are convinced that at the appropriate time, God will bring judgment on Wike and those who have brought hardship to Rivers State and its people…”
APC added: “It is not late yet. There is no way Wike can escape judgment. The ‘caretaker’ governor must account for the blood of our people massacred during the elections”.
The party hailed the chairmen and members of the election petitions tribunal sitting in Abuja for allegedly rejecting overtures from Wike and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and for standing by the truth.
Also singled for commendation was the party’s governorship candidate, Dr. Dakuku Peterside and his legal team, for winning their cases so far and surviving what the Rivers APC called the booby traps set up by Wike and his legal team.
The party advised the peace-loving people of Rivers State to be patient till when justice is done.
