Gov. Wike and wife and children
The governor of River state, Nyesom Wike has said it would be difficult to rig the rerun election in the state because the people are on his side.
Speaking at a press conference in Port Harcourt, Wike said the election has shown clearly who is on ground and who is accepted by the people, saying INEC, federal might, military, police and other security agencies cannot not translate to electoral victories because the people will “always resist agents of rigging”.
Wike also accused the military of working against public interest, saying rather than tackling security challenges they were busy “intimidating and harassing Rivers people”.
“Remember I warned that today’s Nigeria is not yesterday’s Nigeria. Things that were done wrongly before cannot be done wrongly now. I warned that the people will resist any attempt to rig,” he said.
“Now they have the federal might, army, Police, INEC and DSS, but we have the people.” Vanguard
