Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers said on Saturday that the he will appeal against the nullification of his election by the Election Petition Tribunal.

Wike disclosed this to newsmen at the Port Harcourt International Airport, Omagwa, shortly after arrival from Abuja.

He said as a lawyer, he was not supposed to criticise any judge for whatever opinion the judge had.

"So, what I can say is that the tribunal has given it own verdict, but we know that by the special grace of God, that is not the verdict of God.

"Nobody can take your mandate," he said.

According to Wike, our lawyers are going on appeal, we are going to appeal.

He said if need be, the case would get to the Supreme Court.

The governor said he was convinced that he had a good case and that in Lagos, one of the grounds that the PDP governorship candidate went to court was the issue of card reader.

"So, I want to urge you to be calm and be peaceful; I am still the governor of Rivers State.

"Our lawyers are going on appeal; we are all going on appeal. There is also the Supreme Court. We believe that we have a good case, " he said.
