In The Real Presidential Election Results, Wike Lost Rivers Overwhelmingly To Obi - Daniel Bwala

Amid ongoing controversies trailing the outcome of the presidential election conducted by the Professor Mahmud Yakubu-led Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) a fortnight ago, renowned lawyer, and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Barrister Daniel Bwala has come out to insist that the results declared for Rivers State was not the true situation of what transpired in the state.

Speaking during an interview on News Central TV's 'Breakfast Central' program on Friday morning, Bwala, who dumped the APC over its controversial Muslim-Muslim ticket back in 2022, argued that despite working for Tinubu against the PDP, actual results of the election show that Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike lost overwhelmingly to Peter Obi of the Labour Party in the state.

He said; "The notion that the absence of support from Wike affected the PDP's performance in the presidential election has been proven to be false by the results. First of all, in the real election results, Wike even lost overwhelmingly to Peter Obi of the Labour Party. The results presented by INEC were the rigged version of what came out of Rivers. Despite working for Tinubu, how many votes was he able to deliver? Even if I take what was declared by INEC, the votes he delivered for the APC were insignificant.

Then juxtapose that with the other G5 governors who also lost their senatorial bids in their respective states. So, even if Wike and his allies were with us, they wouldn't have delivered anything meaningful to us. They were just making noise in the media. Besides, Wike is about to have his so-called strength tested again tomorrow (Saturday) at state level. So, he didn't affect us at all. In fact, we lost some votes because of Peter Obi of the Labour Party. And that was because the Church supported him."
