The Chairman, Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro. Felix Obuah has congratulated Rivers PDP National lawmakers over the landmark rulings at the Election Tribunal which gave victories to National Assembly lawmakers in the state.
Those that are presently celebrating are Senator George Thompson Sekibo who is representing Rivers East Senatorial District and Senator Olaka Nwogu, representing Rivers South East Senatorial District.
The PDP is also elated by the upholding of the election of members of the House of Representatives from Rivers State namely: Hon. Jerome Eke (Etche/Omuma Federal Constituency); Hon. (Mrs.) Blessing Nsiegbe (Port Harcourt 2); Hon. Ken Chikere (Port Harcourt 1); Hon. Kingsley Chinda (Obio Akpor); Hon. Gogo Bright Tamuno (Okrika/Ogu-Bolo) and Hon. Jacobson Nbina (Tai/Eleme/Oyigbo).

Obuah said the historic ruling by the Tribunal is a plus for the judiciary and marks another victory for democracy. “Our distinguished lawmakers would now refocus on the task of giving effective representation to the people.
“The ruling, once again showed that the victories of the PDP in the 2015 General Election were no flukes. It has vindicated our claim that the PDP is the party of the Rivers people.
“Our victorious lawmakers have clearly overcome the distractions following weeks of contention from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in an election which has been adjudged free, fair and credible.
“We congratulate the Distinguished Senators George Thompson Sekibo, Olaka Nwogu and all the Honorable members of the House of Representatives on their victories while urging Rivers people to remain calm.”
