Speaking in Rivers while recieving the National assembly representatives that just got their certificates of Return at the Government house He said that:
All those who plotted the killings of Rivers people because of their desperation to clinch power will face the consequences of their actions.
I know that PDP won the elections squarely. We believe in peace, therefore Rivers people should remain calm. We believe in due process. I believe that INEC is doing their best to follow the due process.
In the end, it will be a sweet victory. The will of Rivers people will prevail.
Let me thank the people of Rivers State for the love they have shown for our great party.
It is not in doubt that Rivers people have shown our party love. What is happening is sad. It is a drama.
We have 13 House of Representatives seats and the PDP clinched all of them. We have three Senate seats, one has been declared and PDP won. When the remaining two seats are declared, PDP will win them . Eighty percent of the seats declared, PDP took all.
You begin to wonder why any right thinking person would say that PDP lost the governorship election. Not that they say PDP lost to a party with a known logo, or even if you have seen the Candidate one day in your life or seen his posters to make people vote for the candidate.
Not when you hijack results at the Collation Centre. When you hijack Form EC 8C, you forget that there is Form EC 8A. Any other party can win in any other state, but not in Rivers States .
I dedicate this victory to God and the good people of Rivers State who stood firm and said that nobody can manipulate their mandate.
I urge the elected National Assembly to always place the interest of Rivers State above other considerations as they represent the state.
