A HEARTFELT MESSAGE OF CONGRATULATION TO THE VICTORIOUS APC FAITHFULS
I am overwhelmed with joy over the final and positive outcome of the judicial proceedings which have lasted several months now. By these victories at the Appeal Court, the strength and predominance of our party, the APC in Rivers State have been confirmed.
I join our party supporters to congratulate you all on your well-deserved victories. I am grateful to God that your electoral victories have been justifiably affirmed in the sacred temple of Justice, considering that we live in a world where justice is hardly the privilege of the just.

Hon Friday Nkeeh (RSHA)
Your victories at the Appeal Court in Abuja have not only restored the confidence of our people in the nation’s judiciary but have also proven that the APC holds the future for Rivers State. These victories have once again proven the firm belief of Rivers people in the ability of the APC to deliver credible leadership and responsible representation.
I have great confidence in the fact that you have the experience, temperament and influence to deliver on the sacred mandates given to you by the people and to attract development into Rivers State. May God bestow upon you the wisdom to legislate for the strong and for the weak.
I use this opportunity to commend the gallantry of all the other APC flag bearers who were either denied victory at the polls or were unsuccessful at the election petition tribunals. They should hold their heads high as persons who stood up to be counted when the party needed them most.
I salute the leader of our great party in Rivers State and in the South-South, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation for his outstanding leadership and firm commitment to restore APC to its glory in the region. I am confident that the APC shall take over the seat of government in Rivers State in 2019.
