The Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, on Wednesday, September 11, congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on his victory against the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, at the election tribunal.
While no other PDP governor or the presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, has spoken on the verdict, Wike has chosen to behave like a sportsman, to stretch his hand of fellowship across the political aisle, even though the party said it would take the matter to the Supreme Court.

In a statement issued by the governor’s media aide, Simeon Nwakaudu, Wike urged Buhari to use his victory to work for all Nigerians, “irrespective of their political leanings.”

Nwakaudu said “Governor Wike called on the President to work towards the unity of the country, noting that the country is divided.”

President Buhari won at the tribunal after four months of a legal battle with the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, who challenged his victory at the February 23 election.
