Gov Nyesom Wike
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has stated that Peoples Democratic Party members who orchestrated his downfall failed woefully.
The governor said the recent crises within the Peoples Democratic Party were stirred by people who, in secret meetings, plotted to bring him down.
The governor said no one of such persons had achieved their plots.
Wike stated these at a thanksgiving service organised to celebrate the appointment of Justice Simeon Amadi as the Chief Judge of Rivers State, at St. Philip’s Anglican Church, Elibrada Parish, in Emohua Local Government Area of the state on Sunday.
The governor, according to a statement by his media aide, Kelvin Ebiri, in Port Harcourt, stated that nobody could tamper with whom God had ordained.
He added that but for God, he would not have become the governor of the state.
He said, “Recently, you heard there were some crises in the Peoples Democratic Party. Everybody who was involved, that plotted everything for my downfall – all are out.
“Everyone, that slept, that went to a meeting, planning how they’re going to bring me down, not one survived.”
The governor also alluded that similar plot was contrived when the former Chief Judge the of the state, Justice Adama Iyayi-Lamikanra, was to be appointed.
He wondered why somebody would render services in the interest of Rivers State and when it was time for appointment, people would start to conspire and even try plotting against his government.
