Nyesom Wike must be having a heartiest laugh of his life at the moment. No more sombre and bleak  Christmas  when the Appeal Court  nullified his election. No more October blues , when the State Election Tribunal shredded his election victory.

Now, the political houdini of Rivers state can enjoy his office as the highest court in Nigeria has ruled in his favour and broken the heart of his APC rival, Dakuku Peterside and his mentor, former governor Rotimi Amaechi.

In his comment over the dramatic Supreme Court verdict, Wike, a lawyer said  his victory is for  the  rule of law and the people of Rivers State.

Governor  Wike  added that the Supreme Court judgment  is a victory for democracy and a confirmation  that the  will of  God  will always  prevail  over the machinations  of  men.

In a statement issued by Simeon Nwakaudu, Special Assistant to the Rivers State Governor on Electronic Media, Governor Wike said that the judgment of the Supreme Court validating his election  is a confirmation of  the  mandate  freely given  to  him by the  people  of  the state.

Governor  Wike  trekked on the streets of Port Harcourt  before ending up at the Government  House. As he walked the streets he was greeted by celebrating Rivers  people.

While assuring the  people  of  Rivers State that his victory  at the Supreme Court  will lead to  greater delivery  of  democracy dividends across  the  state,  Governor  Wike extended a hand of fellowship  to the  Rivers  State APC Governorship Candidate, Dakuku Peterside to join hands  with  his administration  to develop  the state.

He praised the APC  Governorship Candidate, Dr Dakuku Peterside  for approaching  the Judiciary,  instead of embarking on  violence.

He stated that the people  of  Rivers  State  will continue  to  benefit  from  the  pro-people projects  and  programmes  of his administration as he is determined  to  always to live up to  the  social contract  he entered with the Rivers people.

Governor  Wike  specially thanked  all Rivers people for their faith in him and his administration.
