Governor Nyesom Wike, still basking in the euphoria of the Supreme Court verdict that validated his election, on Friday called on the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its governorship candidate, Dr. Dakuku Peterside, to join his government to move the state forward.
He made the call against the backdrop of the insistence by the Labour Party’s candidate in the April 11, 2015 governorship elections, Prince Tonye Princewill that the process through which Wike emerged as governor was neither free nor fair.
Wike, in a statewide broadcast to the people of the state yesterday in Port Harcourt, said it was time for all parties to cast aside their differences and help to move the state forward.
He said, “We salute Dr. Adol Dakuku Peterside, my friend and APC governorship candidate for his courage in fighting his course to the end. Now that the battle is over, the interest of Rivers State should be primary in our considerations and actions.
“It is our pleasure to invite Dr. Dakuku Peterside and the entire APC followership to join us in the work of actualising the aspirations of our people”.
