Rig Election in Rivers State and Die -Wike Maintains His Earlier Threats


Governor of River State has maintained the threat he issued to all Inec Officials and anyone who may be coming to Rivers State with the sole aim of manipulating the will of the Electorate that they will not go back Alive.

Governor  Wike  urged  civil servants  and  other Rivers  people to ensure they vote for PDP  candidates  in  the re-run elections to promote  harmony  in governance  and  sustain the  development  agenda of the state government.

He pointed  out that the  defeated  APC  in the State plans to use the rerun elections  to enter the political  arena through the window  having been shut out by the people  and the Supreme Court. 

Governor Wike said: “When someone  cannot come through  the  door, he may want to come through  the  window.  Rivers people  must not allow them. Our people  must stop them from entering  through the window  to obstruct the good works of this administration “.

Speaking  further on the rerun  elections,  Governor   Wike  said  that  the  will of the Rivers people will prevail,  adding  that the use of security  forces and other electoral officials  to rig the process will fail woefully.
According  to  him, the people  believe  in the transformational leadership of  the  PDP,  stressing  that  it was exhibited in Bayelsa State,  where the use of force by security  agents failed to deliver  electoral victory.

He said: “Anyone  who plans to rig an election  is an armed robber and should  be  treated as such. If you are coming  to  rig an election  in the state, first prepare  your will before embarking  on the journey.  Inform your wife or husband  and go ahead to say your last prayer.

“When they used the security  forces in Bayelsa  State,  it didn’t work.  It will also not work here in Rivers State.  Rivers State  is a peaceful state and our people are peace loving. We want to remain  so”.
