The Special Adviser to the Rivers State Governor on Pleasure Park administration, Hon. Sunny N. Wokekoro (JP), has made it clear that God allowed the All Progressives Congress to win the 2015 General Elections to teach Nigerians some bitter lessons.
Speaking with newsmen at Government House over the weekend during the Special Thanksgiving Service of the PDP for a successful hosting of its 2018 National Convention in Port Harcourt, he stated that “when God departs from His chosen people, He tends to give them bad leaders in order for them to appreciate the good things He has done for them.
Hon. Wokekoro, who was a former APC chieftain, confirmed that there is no hope for the party in the forthcoming general elections as a result of the high handedness and inconsistencies of their leaders and members.
He made it clear that God has placed a big responsibility on the PDP of righting the wrongs of the APC administration, adding that the circumstance the party came into office, promising Nigerians positive change, was a big deceit and a clog in the wheel of the country's progress.
On the Thanksgiving service by the PDP, the Special Adviser said it was a welcome development, as according to him, “whoever first go to God before starting anything, the propensity for the person to succeed is very high; saying that there are biblical injunction to support his ascertion as was with King Solomon, when the lot fell on him to succeed his father as the king of Isreal”.
He used the opportunity to congratulate the State Chief Executive, Barr. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, the PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus and his Rivers State counterpart, Bro Felix Obuah, for remembering to thank God for His faithfulness.
On whether the PDP has an answer to the rigging mechanism of the APC in the forthcoming election, Wokekoro said the task of rescuring Nigeria is a collective responsibility.
However, when you think you have got all the powers and minus God in your calculation, you would meet a big surprise,” he said.
On the faith of the angry aspirants who could not secure the tickets of their electoral positions at the PDP primaries, Wokekoro advised them to accept the outcome in good faith.
“Though they have the right to be angry over the turnout of event but it is important for them to have confidence and trust the supremacy of the party, adding that whatever one doesn't get to someone today might come his/her way or even a higher position some day.
He made it clear that one does not change the name of his father just because his father wronged him, adding that PDP has positioned itself to take over the helm of affairs at “Aso rock” to rescue the country.
Hon. Wokekoro stated that the 2018 PDP National Convention in Port Harcourt was peaceful, free, fair, transparent and adjudged as so globally.
“The convention was the most peaceful and transparent in the history of Nigerian democracy. A situation where all the eleven presidential aspirants accepted the result with and promised to work together to pull out their common enemy,” he said.
