Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Sunday reiterated his position that his victory in the last governorship election was for the people of the state.
The governor spoke during a family thanksgiving held at the Salvation Ministry Headquarters in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
He said, “Nobody has won and nobody has lost the election. Rivers State has won.
“I forgive anyone that has wronged me and I also ask for forgiveness from those that I have wronged.”
Wike said he was in the church to give thanks to God for His faithfulness in the face of fierce political battles during the general elections.
“We have come here to give God thanks because He is so faithful to us. We have come to thank God for the fight he fought on our behalf.
“It is only God who can fight for us. We have no power of our own to fight,” the governor said.
He thanked the Senior Pastor of Salvation Ministry, Pastor David Ibiyeomie, for his spiritual support during the long-drawn political battle.
Wike said even when he faltered in faith, he was strengthened by the cleric.
