Governorship candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the March 9 governorship election in Rivers state, Engr Biokpomabo Festus Awara, has accepted the Supreme Court judgment which upheld the victory of Governor Nyesom Wike and finally confirmed him as the duly elected Governor of Rivers state.
Awara reacted to the apex court’s verdict in a statement he issued and signed personally.
He stated that, “some party men with unholy and unpatriotic desires clothed with tainted hands overtly worked for Governor Wike at the tribunal and all through the Appeal process”.
Awara then thanked and expressed his indebtedness to Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi and his APC family in Rivers state that adopted him as their governorship candidate in the 2019 general election.
“From the depth of my heart, I say thank you a million times to Rt Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and his APC family in Rivers state as silver and gold, I don’t have to repay them for what they have done to me. It is my humble prayers that God should guide and guard their footsteps unto eternity,” Awara prayed for them.
