The governor spoke, yesterday, during a campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  at Okehi, headquarters of Etche Local Government Area of the state,  ahead of the re-run election for Etche/Omuma federal constituency and Etche state constituency seats.

He said: “If we were in a civilised country  with the right leadership, the persons mentioned  in  the  report would  have resigned from their positions. They should  bury their heads in shame. They are  plotting how to kill us, but God is exposing  them. It is only God that has the final say.”

The governor enjoined INEC and security agencies to ensure a free and fair re-run election in the area on Saturday

He appealed to people of the area to vote overwhelmingly for his party.

“The money that is keeping Nigeria afloat  is from Rivers State.  Therefore, Nigeria must listen to Rivers State.  The voices of our people must be heard,” he said.
