President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has congratulated the Governor of Rivers State, Barrister Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, on his victory in the March 9th Rivers State gubernatorial election, in which the collation was finally concluded last night.
In a statement issued by Yusuph Olaniyonu, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity in Abuja, Saraki stated that Wike’s decisive victory, despite the desperate antics of some opposition forces in the state, was a testament to his determination to develop Rivers State for his people.
“Congratulations, Governor Nyesom Wike, on your decisive victory in the Rivers State Gubernatorial election. As you prepare to begin your next term at the helm of your state’s affairs, I wish you and the great people of Rivers State great success and many more achievements in the years to come.
“As a committed and resilient leader who has constantly demonstrated your commitment to the development of your state, in particular, and Nigeria as a whole, the new decisive mandate that your people have entrusted in you is not surprising to anyone.
“In this regard, as you prepare to embark on the new mandate that the great people of Rivers State have entrusted in you and our great party, PDP, I wish you the utmost grace and wisdom of the Almighty for the task ahead,” Saraki stated.
