Port Harcourt – Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, says the Federal Government  is working relentlessly to kill the ruling party’s main rival- Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and thereby successfully muscle credible opposition in Nigerian politics.

Wike noted  that  instead, it is the party that controls the Federal Government  (All Progressives Congress, APC) that will die politically .

He further  stated that deliberate efforts by agents of the Federal Government  to stagnate development  in  Rivers State  will not succeed .

The governor  spoke on Tuesday  at the Government House , Port Harcourt  when he granted  audience to the leadership  of Non -Indigenes Without Borders chaired by Hon Emeka Onowu.

He said: “We have a sad situation  where everything is being done   at the  Federal  level  to kill the PDP . However, in the end, it is their own political  party that will die”.

The governor  expressed dissatisfaction  with the repeated plots to rig the forthcoming  rerun elections in Rivers State. He noted that nobody would be  allowed to steal the mandate of Rivers people, no matter  the deployment  of pliant security  agencies .

“They are repeatedly  shifting the date of the rerun elections, so that they can have a convenient  time to rig. Nobody  should be scared of their plan to use DSS  and police to rig  the rerun  elections .

” The policeman  that is carrying gun, how many people  can he kill? In Turkey  where they resisted the Army, are they not human beings ? Nobody will circumvent the mandate of the Rivers people “, Governor Wike said .

He said as an opposition  state, the people of Rivers State are aware that will have battles for survival from those who control the federal level.

The governor  explained  that  his action of October 8, 2016 was  not geared towards stopping the DSS from arresting  a Judge, but an action aimed at ensuring that the right process was followed.

National Leader  of the  Non -Indigenes Without Borders ,Hon Emeka Onowu lauded Governor Wike for providing  leadership  that has helped to shape democracy  in the country.

He commended the governor  for being a detribalised governor who caters for all interest and ethnic  groups .

” They claimed during  the  campaign  that Governor Wike  would chase away non-indigenes from  the state. Today, the truth is out and their  false propaganda  has been  exposed.

“Non-indigenes  have never had it so good in Rivers State .  Today, we have a Chief Judge , a commissioner , Caretaker Committee members , Senior Aides to  the  governor and our members have benefitted from  the  empowerment programme to traders and artisans .”

He said  that the Wike administration  has  been demonstrated fairness and love in all her dealings with non-indigenes since 2015.
