The Rivers State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Felix Obuah, has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission to declare the state Governor, Nyesom Wike, the winner of the March 9 governorship election in the state.
Obuah, who spoke in Port Harcourt, the state capital on Wednesday, claimed that based on the results from 26 state constituencies and 14 national assembly seats, the PDP won.
He said his party was confidence of “an overwhelming victory.”
He said, “With the available results so far from the field, I want to assure you that his excellency (Wike) has won overwhelmingly and INEC should not waste time in declaring Governor Nyesom Wike the winner and governor-elect of Rivers State.
“We are not worried about what some people are saying. The truth is that with the results from the field, the incumbent governor should be declared governor-elect.
“Results from all polling units and constituencies where elections were concluded have confirmed and reaffirmed to us that Rivers State is the PDP. The PDP is our way of life in Rivers State.”
Obuah thanked the people of the state for their support for the party and the state governor.
“With 26 state constituencies already declared for the PDP across the state, it is crystal clear that our governor, his excellency, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has been re-elected by the good people of Rivers State,” he added.
