Wike vows to announce preferred candidates January



The Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, has promised to announce his preferred candidate in the forthcoming 2023 general election, on January.

Wike disclosed this during the commissioning of the tenth flyover at the Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers.

“From January next year, I will campaign to my people whom they will vote for. So all of you who have been in suspense, saying all manner of things and abusing me, wait January has come”, he said.

Recall that after the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, primary election which Wike lost to Atiku Abubakar, he had since then opposed the chairmanship of Iyorchia Ayu.

Wike, with four other PDP governors (G5) have insisted that Ayu must step down for a southerner to emerge the chairman of the party, as condition to support the 2023 ambition of Atiku.

Since he made his stance public, Wike had had series of verbal attacks from critics within his party. Many are confused of whom Wike will support. Some said its clear Wike will not support Atiku.

However, roaring from Obio-Akpor, Wike said he would make known his candidate on January 2023.

His words: “Not only will I tell them where they will vote, I will move from state to state telling them why they should vote the people I said they should vote for. Nothing will happen.

“So all of you, appearing on television, abusing me, don’t waste your sliver again, January has come. Don’t waste your sliver and going on your platform.

“All those telling Nigerians that you use to have forty shoes, you use to have fifty wristwatches, time has come to covert those shoes and wristwatches to vote.

“It’s not to be on the podium and raise your shoe high and raise your wristwatch high, time has come to convert it to vote.

“Those who have never been stabled, moving from PDP to… and there back to PDP, those of you who made campaign in 2015, telling Nigerians if they vote for PDP, they are voting for insurgency, corruption, wait all of us will reply, we will tell Nigerians this thing you said how far what is the system now, is it the same PDP or a new PDP.

Let me use this opportunity to advise those of you who call yourselves our brothers in Abuja, this 2023 election will confirm to us in Rivers state, who are those that have influence to vote. Those that their people will listen to and vote. It’s not to be in Abuja and tell them whatever you are telling them. Come home, our polling booths are not in Abuja, they are here. Stop telling them lies, What you cannot do say you cannot do.

Lagos Governorship Elections: Rhodes-Vivour Takes Next Step After Tribunal Verdict

The governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has announced his intention to appeal the verdict of the Lagos Governorship Elections Petitions Tribunal.

Rhodes-Vivour stated this in a press release on Tuesday while sharing his stance on the judgement.

He insisted that the essence of democracy not only lies in one’s ability to vote but also the capacity to defend the votes.

The essence of democracy lies not only in our ability to vote but also in our capacity to defend the integrity of that vote.

“Consequently, our laws allow Governorship candidates to challenge the decisions of the electoral tribunals at the Court of Appeal, and up to the Supreme Court. In light of this, my lawyers have been instructed to appeal this judgment, as we remain confident of getting substantial justice at the appellate courts,” he said.

While urging his supporters and Lagosians in general to remain calm, peaceful, and law-abiding, Rhodes-Vivour expressed the hope of getting substantial justice at the appellate courts.

“In these trying times, your unwavering support means the world to us, we must remain united, vigilant, and hopeful.

The ultimate victory may take time to come our way, but it is, we strongly believe inevitable as we have come to understand that the wheels or justice may sometimes grind slowly but it definitely grinds to a sure end,” the LP candidate added.

I’ll continue to fight – Atiku breaks silence on tribunal judgement




The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last election, Atiku Abubakar, has vehemently rejected the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT).

We recall that PEPT on Wednesday struck out the petition filed by Atiku and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart, Peter Obi, challenging the victory of President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 election.

The tribunal held that the petitions by the candidates and their parties lacked merit, upholding the election of Tinubu.

The judgement was delivered by the chairman of the tribunal, Justice Haruna Tsammani, assisted by other members of the panel, namely justices Monsurat Bolaji-Yusuf, Stephen Adah, Moses Ugo, and Abba Mohammed.

Reacting, Atiku, in a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, rejected the verdict, saying the battle to upturn Tinubu’s victory continues.

The former Vice President, who called himself a fighter, said he had instructed his legal team to file an appeal at the Supreme Court.

He said:

“I am here today to give my official reaction to the judgement delivered yesterday by the Presidential Election Petition Court on the 2023 presidential elections.

“As you already know, I approached the court following the declaration by the INEC that the APC and its candidate are the winners of the February 25 elections. My decision to go to court was anchored in my belief that the court is the sanctuary of justice.

“Indeed, I am no stranger to legal battles. I can say that I have a fair idea of how the court system works. All through my career as a politician, I have been a fighter, and I will continue to fight.

“Our aim of conducting credible elections in the country was compromised by INEC through the way it managed the presidential election.

“I am afraid that the judgement of the PEPT yesterday failed to restore confidence in our dream of free and fair elections devoid of human manipulation.

“I am here to tell you that though the judgement of the court yesterday is respected, it is a judgement that I refused to accept.

“I refuse to accept it because I believe it is devoid of substantial justice. I have asked my lawyers to constitutionally activate the guaranteed right to appeal in the higher court.”
