described Saturday’s judgement of the
Rivers State Governorship Election
Petition Tribunal that overturned the

PDP as a deadly blow to impunity and
hooliganism.

Governor Nyesom Wike
In a statement issued in Lagos on
Saturday by its National Publicity
Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the
party said the judgement has shown
clearly that the era of impunity and
hooliganism is over, and that the only
way for elections to have legitimacy is for
them to be free, fair and credible.
“What has come across from this
judgement is that there is no shortcut to
free, fair and credible elections. This is
part of the wind of change that is blowing
across the land and touching all arms of
government under the Administration of
President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Elections are about the expression of the
will of the people, and they must always
be free to express themselves,
irrespective of what some desperate
politicians may feel,” it said.
APC said politicians, especially those
seeking or occupying elective office, must
realize that they can only derive their
legitimacy from the people, and that
unless they respect the wishes of the
people, they will not go far.
The party hailed its governorship
candidate in Rivers, Mr Dakuku Peterside,
for his doggedness and strong conviction
in the pursuit of his petition against the
election of Wike that was not only marred
by widespread violence and electoral
malfeasance, but also acknowledged to
be so by local and international observers
– and now by the
judiciary.
It urged all APC members and supporters
in the state to remain peaceful, even in the
face of provocation by those who are now
realizing, to their chagrin, that there is
always a limit to everything, including
impunity and hooliganism.
The social media in Nigeria is agog with
the news that Governor Nyesom Wike has
been sacked by the election tribunal
sitting in Abuja.
