Rivers holds first mass choir carol festival

By Jimitota Onoyume

PORT HARCOURT: THE Rivers State Government has held its first ever 1,000-man mass choir carol festival at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium, Port Harcourt.

The state governor, Mr Nyesom Wike, who spoke at the weekend event, said, the carol night was organised to thank God for the successful take off of his administration.

He expressed optimism that he will come out victorious in the battle with his political opponents.

According to him, he had never had political victory cheaply, recalling that as Chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area several years back, his opponents dragged the battle they had with him up to the Supreme Court.

“I was the only council chairman in the country whose political litigation  got to the Supreme Court during  the  1999 electioneering  process. I got my victory at the Supreme Court in April 2000,” he said.
