“Election Riggers Will Be Treated Equally As Armed Robbers” – Governor Wike
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has once again repeated his threat to any official of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) who has the intention of coming to state to rig the forthcoming re-run state and National Assembly election to prepare their will as they will be meted with the same punishment as an armed robber.
According to the Rivers state governor, the people believe in the transformation leadership of the PDP party, stressing that it was exhibited in Bayelsa State, where the use of force by security agents failed to deliver electoral victory.
Wike threatened in quote:
“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.”
