Ayodele Fayose, the immediate past Governor of Ekiti state, has reacted to Nyesom Wike’s re-election for a second term as Governor of Rivers State.
Fayose made his reaction known in a tweet on his Twitter page.
Mocking the opposition, Fayose described Wike’s victory as a historic one and said it showed that Nigerians were capable of defeating ‘tyranny’ threatening democracy.
“I congratulate my friend and brother, Governor Ezenwo Nyesom Wike and the entire people of Rivers state for this sweet and historic victory over those forces of evil who for their own selfish reasons turned the state to a killing field.
“That the people of Rivers State stood by Governor Wike and the PDP even in the face of death is a sign that Nigerians are capable of defeating tyranny and this will just be the beginning of more victories over the forces threatening the survival of democracy in our country.”
We reported earlier that Wike of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was on Wednesday declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
