Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said he is not in any contest or fight with anyone in the state.
Mr Wike’s reaction trails the Appeal Court judgement which affirmed his re-election as governor.
Wike explained that the electioneering period was over and that it is time to fulfil promises, provide good governance rather than engage in fights with the electorate.
According to a statement signed by his Media Aide, Simeon Nwakaudu, the governor made the assertions while receiving the Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim at the Government House Port Harcourt.
He said: “We are here to assist. We are not fighting with anybody. We are here to complement the efforts of the Government.
“Politics has come and politics has gone. We have won the election here, they have lost. But they have won in other places. Politics has ended and we are now talking about governance.”
