” I call on members of the Accord Party and all my teeming supporters across the State to vote for His Excellency Ezenwo Neysom Wike and all other candidates of the PDP during the Governorship and House of Assembly elections on Saturday 9thMarch 2019.
” I join well-meaning Nigerians to condemn the ongoing security clampdown and harassment of political leaders of the PDP in the run-up to the elections and call on the law enforcement agencies to provide adequate security for Rivers people to peacefully vote for the candidates of their choice before, during and after the Governorship and House of Assembly election”, he said.
He explained that he remains the authentic Governorship Candidate of the Accord Party following the Federal High Court judgment.
He said: “Recall that the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt on the 27th of February 2019 nullified the nomination of Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs as the Rivers State Governorship Candidate for Accord Party and in his place declared me as the duly nominated Governorship candidate of the party having contested and emerged victorious from the party’s primary.
” As at today 7th March 2019, that judgment is still subsisting and effective having not been set aside or stayed by any superior Court of law. Consequently, I remain the authentic and lawful Rivers State Gubernatorial candidate of the Accord Party for next Saturday’s rescheduled Governorship elections”.
