Immediate past Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose has reacted to Nyesom Wike’s re-election for a second term as Governor of Rivers State. Fayose in a post on his Twitter page described Wike’s victory as a historic one. Mocking the opposition and Amaechi who declared his support for AAC, Fayose said Wike’s victory showed that Nigerians were capable of defeating ‘tyranny’ threatening democracy.
The former governor wrote: “I congratulate my friend and brother, Governor Ezenwo Nyesom Wike and the entire people of Rivers state for this sweet and historic victory over those forces of evil who for their own selfish reasons turned the state to a killing field.
“That the people of Rivers State stood by Governor Wike and the PDP even in the face of death is a sign that Nigerians are capable of defeating tyranny and this will just be the beginning of more victories over the forces threatening the survival of democracy in our country.”
According to reports in DAILYPOST, Governor Nyesom Wike of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was on Wednesday declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC . The State Returning Officer, Deputy Vice Chancellor of Federal University, Otuoke, Bayelsa State, Professor Teddy Addia, declared that Governor Wike polled 886,264 votes to defeat his closest rival Biokpomabo Awara of the AAC who polled one hundred and seventy three thousand, eight hundred and nine votes.
Recently, Reno Omokri, a former aide to Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has mocked Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi after Governor Nyesom Wike defeated him in his local government area in the ongoing collation of election results for Rivers Guber. As results are being announced at the collation centre in Port Harcourt, in Ikwerre LGA where Rotimi Amaechi hails from, the PDP polled 14,938 while the AAC got 5,660.
The Rivers election is between Nyesom Wike, incumbent governor and candidate of the PDP and the AAC candidate, Awara Biokpomabo backed by Amaechi. Reacting, Omokri described the result as ‘humiliating experience’ According to him, Rivers election has confirmed Amaechi’s position in the state.
“What a humiliating experience for Chibuike Amaechi defeated in his LGA!
Omokri on his Twitter page wrote: “The Rivers election confirm once and for all that no matter the amount of protein a lizard eats, it can never be a crocodile. “Federal might can’t transform potbelly to pregnancy. Lizard of Ubima.”
After Wike’s victory was announced Reno went ahead to hit back at Amaechi with yet another tweets saying: “Governor Wike, #TheAmaechiSlayer, forced Rotimi @ChibuikeAmaechi to give birth to the creature his potbelly has carried for many years. Congratulations Amaechi. You have given birth to triplets named DISGRACE, DEFEAT & REJECTION. Both father and triplets are doing well in Abuja.”
