PDP calls for calm amid Wike election nullification

28 October 2015, 10:25Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Rivers State Chapter of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) has called for calm after the state's election tribunal nullified Governor Nyesom Wike's election.

The State Chairman of the party, Felix Obuah, assured followers the party would win its appeal against the nullification.

Obuah said the party was "halfway through what seemingly were challenges orchestrated by enemies of the state."

"We  can now see light at the end of the tunnel and are therefore not perturbed. We are sure of victory," Obuah declared.

The State PDP Chairman recalled that the same judiciary and its judges, magistrates and judiciary workers former governor Rotimi Amaechi "subjected to untold hardship and frustration for over one year were still the same people he had run to, for assistance in his new plot to institutionalize another round of illegality in the state."

He described the development as ironic and shameful.

"There is no way Amaechi will succeed in rubbishing the eminent jurists that are in charge of the nation¹s temple of justice in his renewed 
politics of calumny," said Obuah.

The All Progressive Congress (APC), whose candidate Daku Peterside lost the governorship election, has successfully challenged the poll outcome 
citing violence and vote rigging marred the process.
