Abuja - Some workers in Rivers State marched to the Government House in Port Harcourt to celebrate the victory of Governor Nyesom Wike secured at the Supreme Court.
The civil servants, led by the State Head of Service, Rufus George, said they were at Government House in solidarity and to declare their support for the state government.
George said despite some distractions, Wike still focused on the welfare of civil servants and pensioners.
He recalled that during the last administration, civil servants struggled for salaries while freedoms were curtailed.

“We are under a government that allow free gathering, and that is why we freely come out to say that we are grateful to God for confirming that he has given us Governor Wike to fulfill his tenure,” George said.
Addressing the workers, Permanent Secretary of the State, Onyenachi Nwankwor, welcomed the court ruling.
Also speaking, the Commissioner for Chieftaincy and community affairs, Dr John Bazia, commended the state civil servants for showing solidarity with Wike for the victory.
The Supreme Court earlier this week endorsed Wike's election, in opposition to election tribunals invalidating the governorship poll outcome as per request of the All Progressives Congress.
