Addressing  thousands  of  PDP members at Luuwa in Khana Local Government Area during the 50th birthday of Senator Lee Maeba  on Saturday, Governor Wike said that he intercepted the letter by the  Rivers State APC Chairman to the  security  agencies. 

The governor  reiterated that the  people of the state will resist any attempt  to  use the  security  forces to rig the rerun elections. 

According to him,  no matter the level of  intimidation and arrests of PDP  members by the  security forces, PDP will win the rerun legislative elections. 

He said: “We will  support  INEC to conduct  free and fair elections, but nobody  who rigs the  election will go free”.

He charged Ogoni people to vote all PDP candidates  during  the  rerun  elections  so that the development  process  of  his administration will be  enhanced. 

Governor Wike  urged  the  people of Rivers South East to vote Senator Olaka Nwogu who will defend the interest  of  the  people at the National Assembly.  According to him, Mr Magnus Abe who now moves around with soldiers and policemen to intimidate ordinary people, will only go to the National Assembly to work  against the  state, hence the  people  should  vote against him.

He announced  the  take-over of the Primary Health Centre in the  area by the state government  as a birthday  gift to Senator Lee Maeba.

In his remarks, Senator Lee Maeba assured  Governor Wike  that the Ogoni people  will always support his administration and the PDP. 

The governor was accompanied  to the 50th birthday  celebration  of Senator Lee Maeba  by Deputy National Chairman of PDP, Uche Secondus,  Former Rivers State Governor,  Sir Celestine , Former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr . Austin Opara, Former Minister of Sports, Dr Tammy Danagogo , PDP Chieftain,  Chief Sergeant and Sole Administrator, Greater Port Harcourt Development Authority, Ambassador Desmond Akawor.
