Wike Slams INEC, Says You Can’t Transplant Edo Rigging Model To Rivers

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has declared that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and others plotting to transplant the Edo State rigging model in Rivers State would fail as the people of the state would resist them.

Wike spoke yesterday while flagging off the reconstruction of Bonny Jetty at the Bille/Bonny/Nembe Waterfront in Port Harcourt.

“Anyone planning to steal our mandate will be resisted. Nobody can intimidate us. They will rig themselves into the water,” he stated.


The governor stressed that INEC and pliant security agencies would not be allowed to use the Edo governorship election model in Rivers State.

His words: “I hear some persons celebrating that they will repeat what they did in Edo State, here in Rivers State. Somebody who is suffering from malaria can say anything. But nobody will use the police to rig the rerun elections in Rivers State

“If you want to take our mandate by force, you will go by force. All the people of Rivers State must remain vigilant. INEC may want to take us unawares.”
