He said those who are hatching different plots to destabilise  Rivers State would be consumed by their  own plot because they are fighting God.
He said: “In trying to destabilise Rivers State, they will be  consumed because  they are fighting  God. The PDP  is on ground  in Rivers State, even if you share the entire money of NDDC to Rivers APC, Rivers State will remain  totally  PDP.
“All their plots will never succeed. They are even plotting to attack the plane that I am flying in, but they  will fail”.
The governor  called on the people of the state  to remain  firm despite the evil machinations  of the APC.

“We insisted on one-man, one vote. We insisted that every vote must count that is why I am being villified and harassed.
“Let me thank our people for being firm and resolute in defence of democracy.  You saw guns and you insisted on defending democracy.  Many of our  people  paid with their lives.
“All those who shot and killed  our people will never know peace. Those who plotted to kill our people, will never know peace”, he said.
