GOVERNOR of Rivers State,
Nyesom Wike’s statement
declaration that any INEC Officer

of the state, Simeon Nwakaudu,
Special Assistant to the Rivers
State Governor on Electronic
Media has explained.

the fact that Rivers is a PDP
state and nobody, no matter
how mischievously cunning
would be allowed to use
security forces to compromise
the electoral process.

his statement of fact should
hide their heads in shame
for plotting to connive with
criminal elements to subvert
the collective will and
mandate of Rivers people “.

is important to reiterate that
Rivers State is PDP and the
party enjoys unprecedented
following as a result of Governor
Wike’s superlative performance.

resolve of the people to protect
their mandate. In Rivers State
rigging is not an option because
the people have made their
choice to always support the
PDP and Governor Wike
