▪Eleme people resolve to re-elect  Governor Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that the  embattled Minister of Transportation is behind the evil machinations  to destroy the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) , Justice Walter Onoghen.

Addressing thousands of PDP supporters during the PDP State Campaign Rally  at Eleme on Thursday, Governor Wike said that the Minister of Transportation made the confession at a meeting with an APC Chieftain in Abuja.

He said: "At that meeting in Abuja last Monday, Amaechi confessed that he is the person behind the illegal crisis facing the CJN. He bragged that he will destroy  the CJN the way he brought Former President Goodluck Jonathan down.

"He wants to destroy the nation's judiciary.  This particular evil will finally consume Amaechi ".

He said that Amaechi is notorious for the destruction of the Judiciary, having closed down Rivers State Judiciary for two years. He wondered why Amaechi hates the Judiciary, despite being a beneficiary of the vibrancy of the Judiciary.

The governor wondered why Amaechi would say that PDP is a party of thieves when he was Speaker for eight years under the PDP and eight years as Governor under the PDP .

He said: "If there is any thief, Amaechi  is the proper thief. This thief sold our valued assets to his business partner, Mr Tonye Cole ".

Governor Wike stated that Nigeria has been liberated following  the retirement of former Inspector General of Police , Ibrahim Idris.

He said the Former Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris was Satan's representative in Nigeria.

The governor called for an  independent investigation into the murder of the Kano State Resident Electoral Commissioner and his family through arson during the 2015 General elections. He noted that Ibrahim Idris was the commissioner of police in Kano State when this ugly crime was committed.

He said: "The Former IGP Ibrahim Idris is a representative of Satan in Nigeria.  He represented Satan but the prayers and fasting of Nigerians ensure he was retired despite plans to retain him.

"If Buhari has any integrity , he should investigate the killing of the ResidentElectoral Commissioner in Kano alongside his family during the 2015 General elections.  Buhari must ask what killed the REC and his family while Ibrahim Idris was a commissioner of police".

He called on the people of Eleme Local Government Area to vote for Atiku Abubakar, so that he can revive Onne Port for the good of the economy of Rivers State.

"Buhari is not aware of anything.  No wonder he is not aware that he hates Rivers people and is yet to execute any project  in the state. How can you support a President who does not respect the rule of law. If he fails to respect the law in his first term, the second term would be a disaster .

"The only way that Eleme people will get Onne Port to start working again, is to vote for Atiku Abubakar.  He is a man with the knowledge to create employment opportunities and  develop the economy " he said.

He declared that Buhari and the APC will lose in all the six states of the South-South, saying no deployment of security forces will help the failed APC Federal Government.

Governor Wike noted that during his second term, he will construct the Eleme Internal Roads  in addition  to other basic infrastructure.

The governor  added that in line with his commitment to the expansion of leadership opportunities, youths and women  will take 65 percent of the appointments.

Rivers State PDP Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah said that he is impressed  by the large turnout of Eleme people and their maximum support for Governor Wike and other PDP candidates.

Rivers State Presidential Campaign Coordinator, Senator Olaka Nwogu said that  Eleme will vote all PDP candidates during the 2019 General elections .

Director General of Rivers State PDP Campaign Council, Ambassador Desmond Akawor said across  the 92 polling units  of Eleme the people have resolved to support Governor Wike in 2019.

Philip Okparaji, Chairman of Eleme Local Government Area said that the people will correct the error of 2015, when PDP lost in Eleme.

Former Eleme Local Government Area Chairman, Ejor N. Ejor said that Eleme stakeholders have collectively pledged to deliver all PDP candidates.

The rally witnessed the defection of hundreds of APC members to the PDP.

The Eleme Council of Chiefs conferred on Governor Wike a Chieftaincy title in appreciation of his developmental strides in the area.
