Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike has stated that Nigerians will resist any attempt by the APC-Federal Government to deliberately truncate the nation’s democracy.
Speaking during the inter-denominational service to mark this year’s Armed Forces Remembrance Day at the Holy Trinity Anglican Cathedral, Rumuapara Deanery, Port Harcourt, yesterday, Governor Wike said that the illegal actions of the Buhari administration are pointers to the fact that he may not willingly hand over after he suffers defeat in February.
Wike said that charges concocted by the Buhari administration against the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) are aimed at frightening the Judiciary, ahead of the planned manipulation of the polls.
The governor noted that the concocted charges against the Chief Justice Of Nigeria are targeted at the Niger Delta, same way they muzzled former President Goodluck Jonathan.
He said: “Since 1960 when Nigeria gained independence, for the first time in 2011, a Niger Delta person became the President. The entire country ganged up against him . They gave excuses and denied us a second term. We did not fight. We did not shed blood. He said his ambition was not worth the blood of any Nigerian and they called him a weak man.
“Since 1960, no Niger Delta person has been the Chief Justice of Nigeria. When it came to his own time to be appointed the Chief Justice of Nigeria politics came in. They were not willing to appoint him. It was God that created the circumstances. The President was sick and was flown out. That was how Onnoghen became the Chief Justice of Nigeria.
“Now, because they believe that the Niger Delta is not part of this country, they have come again with all kinds of stories. They think they are talking to small children. Fabricated stories and said he did not declare his assets in 2011. Step aside for who take over. We must know whether or not we belong to this country. Enough is enough. I have never seen people who are so desperate to cling to power”.
The governor added: “When they came before to attack the judiciary, I raised alarm. I told them what they were doing is part of their future plan. Unfortunately, NBA did not realise it. They chickened out and gave out their judges. Not knowing that the lion is still waiting somewhere to complete the assignment.
“They have INEC and the security agencies. They have plotted how to rig the elections. But they have not been able to gag the judiciary.
Governor Wike expressed surprise that the Attorney-General of the Federation would be used by the failed APC Federal Government to concoct illegal charges against the Chief Justice Of Nigeria.
“They know and the law is clear. You cannot try any judge except the National Judicial Council approves. They know they cannot try the CJN. But all they are doing is to cause embarassment. Put fear in all the judges.
“An Attorney General who calls himself an Attorney General will sit and file such charges against the Chief Justice of Nigeria one month to the general election. What kind of crisis are they setting up. They want to cause crisis in the judiciary and they think everyone should keep quiet?”, he said
Wike said the extreme manipulation of the system and the enthronement of a culture of impunity by the Buhari administration will not augur well for the country.
He said: “Nigeria will resist any attempt to truncate this democracy. With what I am seeing with this present government, because they are smelling defeat, they are not likely to hand over if they lose. Mark it today.
“If they lose, they will prefer something funny to happen. Anybody that does that will face the consequences. Now they are pushing people to the wall. Be careful how you deny people their mandate. Allow people’s votes to count.
“We are no longer in a democracy. This system is worse than the military. Even under the military, opinions of the people count”.
On Rivers State, Governor Wike said any security personnel plotting evil against the state will face God’s judgment and punishment.
In a sermon titled: “Your Work will follow you”, Venerable John Adubasim said Rivers people are happy with the achievements of Governor Wike.
He prayed God to bless the families of the fallen heroes and war veterans, saying that their sacrifices will never be forgotten.
The Cleric warned against the attempt to scuttle the nation’s democracy by enemies of democracy.
He said that God will embarass anyone trying to subvert the will of the people of Rivers State.
Venerable Adubasim said the military should not allow themselves to be used to be used to manipulate the elections.

Meanwhile, the Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike has called on Rivers people to vote out the evil APC Federal Government on February 16, so as to attract benefits to the state.
Speaking during a mobilisation meeting at Unit 7 Ward 9 of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area on Saturday, Governor Wike said that Rivers people will queue behind the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, during the elections.
He stated that all through the 4442 polling units in the state, Rivers people will vote out the failed APC Federal Government in unison. He said since 2015, the Buhari administration has not initiated or executed any project in Rivers State.
The governor said that mobilisation for votes is happening at the unit level to carry all Rivers people along in the move to oust Buhari from the Presidency.
He said: “Vote out Buhari and vote in Atiku Abubakar. Let Buhari and APC pack and leave the Presidential Villa. Buhari’s tenancy has expired”.
He urged the people of the state to be alert at their respective units to ensure that PDP wins at all levels.
Governor Wike said rather than develop the country, the APC Federal Government is fighting all institutions in a bid to rig the forthcoming elections.
He said: “The APC Federal Government is fighting everyone. They struggled to destroy the National Assembly and failed. They are also fighting the judiciary, so they can rig the forthcoming elections. They are trying to intimidate the judiciary “.
The governor added: “This government has suffered Nigerians beyond measures. This government is evil. There is nothing good that will come out of this government. This is the worst Federal Government ever “.
Speaking on the State-wide unit mobilisation meetings, the governor said that it is meant to reach out directly to voters and propagate the need to work for Rivers development.
”I came to interact with those registered at my unit. This is happening across the state. This is a meeting for everyone registered in this unit. It is not restricted to PDP members. It is for everyone registered under the units. Reach out to them and ensure they vote PDP.
”During the next meeting, ensure you come with four persons . Every registered voter should be reached. Through this process, we will reach everyone”, he said.
Leader of the unit, Kingsley Owabie said that the unit will continue to support Governor Wike for his outstanding projects delivery.
