Wife of the Rivers State Governor Justice Suzzette Wike Calls For Peace Ahead of Rivers Re-run


The wife of the Rivers State governor, Justice Suzzette Eberechi Nyesom Wike has called on all Rivers people, and non-indigenes domiciled in Rivers State to make peace their priority as we go into the weekend leading to the re-run elections in the state.With the state sitting on a gun-powder ahead of the re-run, Justice Wike, who is the mother of the state has reminded Rivers people that they are peace loving and should therefore not allow partisan selfish interests to push them into acts of violence;

“We are a peace-loving people who desire peace to reign in our beloved State. We, as individuals, must not be blinded by selfish or partisan interests to allow ourselves to be embroiled in confrontations and altercations that will lead to violence and disruption of the electoral process. No blood must be shed on Rivers soil this election weekend and thereafter. Not anymore. Enough of the blood- letting.”

Justice Wike called on parents, community leaders, the clergy and other leaders to please use their power to convince those under their care to embrace peace;

“Parents, guardians, Chiefs, Elders, clergyman and women, please caution your children, wards, subjects and people in your Churches and communities strongly against involvement in criminal activities on behalf of their political parties, as that runs against the grain of our peaceful values.”

The re-run elections into some Rivers House of Assembly, and the national assemblies are slated for the 19th of March, 2016.
