Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has declared that despite the postponement of elections allegedly masterminded by the failed All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal government, Nigerians are determined to vote out President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking during a special anointing service at the Living Faith Church, Kaduna Street, D-Line Port Harcourt, Governor Wike said the postponement should re-energise Nigerians to use their votes to insist that Nigeria must be better according to Sun news.
He said: “I am not speaking to you because I’m a governor. I’m speaking because I’m a member of an organisation, “Nigeria must be better.”
“The situation we find ourselves today is not what we bargained for. We have to move ahead so that Nigeria must be better. You know what to do next Saturday.”
Governor Wike regretted that there are people, who think they can play on the intelligence of Nigerians, by shifting elections unnecessarily.
He thanked Nigerians for refusing to be provoked by the last-minute postponement of elections.
He said: “What happened yesterday should re-energise you to still believe in the principle that Nigeria must be better. If yesterday, you said let me just do it, this week, come with all your energy and truly Nigeria must be better”.
The governor urged Nigerians to opt for development and freedom and abhor dictatorship, when they vote on February 23, saying that the present administration must be thrown out.
Governor Wike said the message to Nigerians on the way forward was clear.
He noted that Nigerians had spoken that they wanted to dump the failed President Muhammadu Buhari era and revive development.
Rivers State Pastor of Living Faith Church, Isaac Folaji, and other clerics, prayed for the peace of the country and its development.
Pastor Folaji conducted an anointing service for the growth and protection of individuals and for the development of Rivers State.
