On the 28 of November 2016, Barr. Nyesom Wike at the flag off of the rehabilitation of the Abonnema General Hospital in Akuku-Toru Local Government Area, told the entire world that he is in possession of a video recording containing a detailed rigging plan between the Rivers State Police Commissioner and some [opposition] politicians.
In his words: “We are now in possession of the DVD of how the Police Commissioner and some politicians were planning on how to rig the forthcoming Legislative Re-run elections in Rivers State. At the appropriate time, we shall release the materials for Nigerians to understand the depth of the Electoral fraud being perpetrated by INEC and Police.
“For the security of this all important audio-visual material, we have mass produced them and kept them at different locations. Nigerians are entitled to know the truth about the unfortunate rigging machine.”
Wike explained: “Now that we have caught them on tape, this will shake the world. Rivers State is not like other states where you can plot and execute easy rigging plans”.
Now, today is the twelveth day since that stunning declaration and eve of the Legislative Rerun Elections yet no one, not even his e-mutants, slugs, millipedes and blabbermouth (apologies to Prof. Wole Soyinka) have seen/heard the recording.
What is causing the delay in the release of the “very indicting”, mass produced, earth-shaking audio-visual secret recording? Or is this one of the many cases of talking “under the influence”?
Rivers People are watching and waiting.
