Governor Nyesom Wike who doubled as chairman national campaign council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the just concluded Edo governorship election has received a rousing reception by the people of Rivers State who trouped out in their thousands to welcome him after delivering the candidate of his political party, Governor Godwin Obaseki who was declared winner of the September 19 governorship election held in Edo State.

The elated Nyesom Wike thanked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies for the roles they played in ensuring free and fair election.

Though he mentioned that the Inspector General of Police had earlier wanted to intimidate him by ordering him out of Edo State, but they later realized their mistake and did the right thing.

He called on the INEC to use Edo election 2020 as a yardstick for conducting other polls in Nigeria, while thanking the international community for putting pressure on Nigeria to do the needful.
