RIVERS 2015: “Nobody can stop me from winning the governorship election” – Wike


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate in Rivers State, Chief Nyesom Wike, has declared that he would win Saturday’s governorship election in the state. Speaking at an Easter celebration/PDP victory rally in Port Harcourt on Monday, Wike told his supporters not to lose sleep over this weekend’s governorship election because “nobody can stop us from winning on Saturday.”
He added that there is no way the All Progressives Congress, APC, would win the governorship election. “Let them (APC) be in charge of the army, navy or anything, they cannot win this election. If (Governor Chibuike) Amaechi likes, let him bring Secretary General of the United Nations (Ban Ki moon) or (Attahiru) Jega, the chairman of INEC to conduct the election, APC will fail again on Saturday,” he declared. Wike, however, warned that if APC rigs the governorship election on Saturday, “they will rig their lives.” He also alleged that the Rivers State Government is scheming to shift the election in the state until when the President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, has been sworn-in to office. “They don’t want election to be conducted until Buhari is sworn-in. It will not work. We must hold election in Rivers State,” he said. While urging members of the APC to refrain from being used by the ruling government to stage a protest on the streets of Port Harcourt and sealing off of the INEC office, Wike said he would not hesitate to “mobilise the sponsors of such protest out of Port Harcourt.”
