WikeThe Rivers State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja on Saturday nullified the election of Governor Nyesom Wike, the current governor of Rivers State who won the election as the PDP candidate in the April 2015 governorship election.

The governorship candidate of the APC, Dakuku Peterside filed the petition  asking Tribunal to nullify the governorship election in the state and to order a new election.

    Good! If Nigeria must change it should start at the Judiciary where fairness and justice outweighs injustice. This is good as we all know elections weren’t held in Rivers ans Always Ibom.

    Wonderful news! Now they can conduct a proper election – it should be a textbook election, well monitored and with plenty of security and eyes on it. The winner can then proudly go home with the prize. Please make sure mama drama Faka is listening. She and Wike murdered too many because of election tge last time. May the best person win this time.

      Dream on… If you believe APC will win Rivers, then you should believe PDP will win Kano.

      “APC will win Rivers” , Joke of the decade.

      Rivers is not filled with brainwashed people who will be deceived with Aregbe “odourless fufu”

    Please Delta state elections should be nullified also as there was mass rigging and intimidation and murder by the PDP especially in all the wards in Anioma and Ika local government areas

      October 24, 2015 at 5:47 pm

      Suddenly elections in oil rich states are nullified? Some e rats says it’s fine??????

      So you mean Ambode’s, Amosun’s entire West and Northern elections where violent free and fair???

      Rerun elections in Niger Delta 1000 times and PDP will win 1001 times!!!!

      Tribunal orchestrated by APC?

      We will all sit down here and read Wike and Akwa Ibom PDP disgraced APC rats and all the bitterness it represent! APC can’t win in a household in these places!

      Shameless Tribunal can’t raise a finger in Kano neither can buhari rats dare blaspheme their master!

      Hahahahahahahahhahaha APC may never smell any oil state not even the one in Ondo state so keep grinding!

      Absolute rubbish! A party of dogs and baboons! A party who never accepts defeat! Shame on guys! Not even Buhari’s boy in INEC will win Edo back to APC not to mention Rivers and Akwaibom!

      Shameless lots!

      nene+… A pleasure to read your comments. Always. Your analysis is dope.
      Buhari and all the blind APC followers should not bring war to the south. . They can’t even manage BH. What type of democracy is this?
      So Akwa Ibom and Rivers are the only place with alleged election malpractice?

      How long would it take for this oil to dry so we will really know the real Nigerians?

      October 24, 2015 at 8:01 pm

      Just read on Twitter Tolu Ogunlesi, Muktah,Olawale,Yunus, Ayodeji excitement over Rivers tribunal judgment! What a misplaced dissipated energy!

      When bombs detonated repeatedly this week, these parasites where nervous,dumb and silent like a chick at the sight of a hawk!!!!!! They are also voiceless as people of Osun starves and as robbers brazenly rob in Lagos choatic traffic? Suddenly they are awake upon the verdict of their master? They are now jumping like little ewe all around twitter

      This I know for sure. Dakuku Peterside can never become Rivers State Governor even if Amaechi is made the INEC Chairman.

      Tribunal my foot! Rivers election will be done by the people of River not Muktar nor mr Ogunlesi!

      Tolu deal with Lagos it’s already a handful! Hypocrisy is when Muktah and co ignore a burning house to chase rats!

      Nene+ no need for long talk. Even if Bubu man the election boot and Amaechi is Rivers chairman Wike will win again and again. This kind change may just be the beginning of the new Nigeria we all desire. A Rawlings may just be in the works.

    October 24, 2015 at 3:53 pm

    Let it be done the right way, again 50 million times reruns excepts rivers people are bastards, Wike will still win. Baboon dey work monkey dey chop must stop let bastards keep running high on manipulation deluding themselves as kings

    God is wonderful.Wike was biting the finger that fed him.How could somebody like him whom Amaechi brought into limelight be fighting gruesomely against Amaehi’s ministerial appointment in an APC government which Amaechi fought tirelessly to install?

    • Koko

      October 24, 2015 at 4:43 pm

      Sad part is, even Amaechi did the same to his godfather Odili. Our God is truly wonderful.

    • tony

      October 24, 2015 at 7:36 pm

      Amaechi did nothing to Odili. Get your facts right. Amaechi won the PDP primaries to be the flag bearer of the party in the 2007 elections and his name was suddenly removed and given to Omehia who didn’t even come second in the primaries by Odili who was his godfather. Amaechi fought to get his mandate back and won. So how did Amaechi betray Odili? Odili betrayed Amaechi after Amaechi served him for years.

    Woop woop! APC infiltrating Judiciary since Tinubu era this is how they got the niger delta. Please Apc rigged from Lagos to kano katsina and so on. Nigerians be enlightened I am non partisan but when i see APC battling to get oil money I just wonder. Jusdiciary should be fair though if they dont cool they should remember they would dance to rhythm too one day. Nobody here can tell me APC won rivers state rigging or no rigging. APC I hail una politics o plus PDP playing a dumb kinda opposition.

    Thank you nene. It will do Amaechi like film trick when they finish him to pieces. Let him not learn from others. Any southerner especially east and south that can not see they are tools to be used and used and sucked out if power is not just a full but a bastard. Interesting how every potential southerner with the means is attacked. . Stay on the Norther agenda or be finished. Useless cowards that cant stand up for justice. Amaechi when they hv used u to bring home those they want you to bring, your fall will be like a pack of cards. Be feeling like a king there ,nkita like u.

    Apc wants to make sure that they takeover rivers state so that they can steal oil money to there godfather in Abuja & lagos & because Apc don’t have strong evidence to proof that is why they want to re hold the election & it is a taboo & corruption,change my asa

      President buhari was once in charge of the oil also & didn’t do anything like Mrs madueke, so nobody is a child.

    Its un4tunate dt d so-called change of apc is all abt bewitching PDP instead of d wel-fare of Nigerians. A party dt neglets equal representation in appointive positions in a plural nation lik ours,absence of youths nd women etc is nt worth bn a national party nd much pity 2 any. Southerner or an easterner dt stl rooms in dia deceptive change.Amaechi nd his cohorts r neva a threat nd I wish he realises his steps early enof.

    So u all are still screaming change…. O my people, so blind to it all. How can you support thiS… Wike got in there, exactly the same way your corrupt president got In. Say what you may, but by association Buhari is as dirty and corrupt…. maybe in a controlled way but corruption is still corruption.

    Always wonderful news’! Buhari is supposed to be the God sent saviour to Nigeria. It is clear now to see how the saviour will deliver his salvation. The solution is not turning Nigeria into a one party state. How would you ever accept the sponsorship of a corupt man like Amechi, Tinubu and a corupt figure like Obansanjo is your ambassador of goodwill. Ican see where you are going. Goodluck!

    The issue here is not about APC or PDP, but about doing things the right way. Let there be a free and fair election in Rivers state and whoever emerges the winner gets to govern the state irrespective of party. My opinion.

      You are wrong. APC will never win Rivers State, especially after Wike paid all the salaries owed to the civil servants and teachers except APC rigs the election, which will create chaos and unnecessary deaths in Rivers state. My people will not take it lightly. I know my people. Wike is not going anywhere!

      Omomoba. …Don’t you mean Buhari will rig the election and steal this region, he very much desires???

      I have noticed from the comments that the people in support of this verdict are westerners and northerners and not the people of Rivers state.

      Is this Amaechi’s way of covering and shunning all the court cases against his government?

      Buhari, and Amaechi, we need peace!
      Let sleeping dogs lie please!!!!!
