Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has alleged of plans by the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government planned to rig the March 19, and December 10, 2016 legislative rerun elections in order to impeach him.
Governor Wike said the plan was to hijack the State House of Assembly and remove him from office.
The Governor said this during a dedication and thanksgiving church service to mark the second year anniversary of his administration at the world headquarters of the Greater Evangelism World Crusade in Port Harcourt.
He also accused the Federal Government of trying to frustrate him through the rigging of the legislative rerun elections in the state.
He declared that God delivered his administration from the evil conspiracies of the APC.
According to Wike, “They wanted to use the rerun elections to get enough state lawmakers to impeach me. But by God’s grace, we won. We don’t have any power compared to the Federal Government. But God’s power is greater and that is why we have always won.
“Everything was done to make sure that I was not sworn in. They went to Anambra court, they went Imo court, they went to Kano court and they went to Abuja court just to make sure that I was not sworn in.
“Just to get an order to stop me from being inaugurated as the governor of the state and God said no, I will be governor.
“Man said we will not have money to pay salaries, but God said we will have money to pay salaries. Man said we will not have money to do projects, but today, God gave us the money to do projects “.
