Following the verdict by the supreme court rejecting Governor Wike’s appeal, the Rivers State chapter of the People`s Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday appealed to its members in the state to remain calm and law abiding.
Recall that the Supreme Court had on Tuesday struck out Wike’s appeal challenging the relocation of the Election Petition Tribunal from Port Harcourt to Abuja.
Chief Felix Obuah, the state Chairman of the party, made the call in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr Jerry Needam, in Port Harcourt.
Obuah noted that in spite of the verdict against Wike and the state legislators, there was no cause for alarm.
The state Chairman was quoted in the statement as saying that all members of the party and Rivers people should remain resolute because Wike, the legislators and PDP will be victorious at the end of the day.
“But, we can now see light at the end of the tunnel, and are therefore, not perturbed. We are sure of victory,” the statement stated.
