"It is God that gave the victory at the Tribunal - Amaechi reacts to Wike's loss

The immediate past governor of Rivers state, Chibuike Amaechi, has reacted to the judgement which nullified the election of Chief Nyesom Wike as the governor of the state.

Vanguard reports that Amaechi, who is also a ministerial nominee, reacted to Wike’s loss when he arrived Port Harcourt, alongside the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Dakuku Peterside on Sunday.

The ex-governor, who spoke at a forum of the party in Port Harcourt, said those familiar with his political history know that things sometimes do not come easy. Read his exact words after the cut.........

“You can pay all the money you want to pay but if God says it is not your turn it is not your turn. It is God that gave the victory at the tribunal.

“Even if we win at the Supreme Court it is still not yet time for celebration

“This is not a new path for those of you who know me. We did not know they had fixed Saturday for judgement, here we are to thank God,” Amaechi said.

While going rather spiritual, the former governor told the gathering to turn to Luke chapter 17, and reading from verse 11, he charged them with the story of one of the lepers who came back to express gratitude to God after they were healed of leprosy.

Amaechi therefore urged his followers to learn to thank God, saying God had been there for him.

In a rather mocking manner, he said he became a governor at 34 and at fifty, a(the crowd echoed Minister), adding that he will ever be grateful to God.

Peterside on his part, said he was hopeful that the party will win the rerun election ordered by the tribunal as he asked the party members to remain peaceful and continue to conduct themselves decently.
