“I am glad to inform the peace-loving people of River State that I have filed my petition at the election tribunal to reclaim my mandate following the widespread irregularities in March 18, 2023, Governorship and House of Assembly elections in Rivers State.
“This I did after evaluating the entire process and the pieces of evidence of malpractices that are now before the tribunal.
“What is the PDP afraid of in allowing us to access the election materials? Why are they blocking the access to INEC office in Port Harcourt?
“I, therefore, call on the Chief Judge of Nigeria to relocate the Rivers State Elections Tribunal to Abuja as the state is heated up by the PDP in the state.
“My appeal is for everyone to remain calm, as we have a very good case at the tribunal,” he said.
