Addressing thousands of PDP supporters at the Rivers East PDP Senatorial Campaign Rally at Okehi, Etche Local Government Area on Thursday, Wike explained that such an action was inimical to a credible legislative rerun election in the state.
Wike further accused the INEC National Chairman of concluding plans to postpone the July 30, 2016 rerun elections in deference to the fear of defeat expressed by the leadership of Rivers State APC.
Wike according to Daily Post expressed regret over the posting of compromised policemen to Rivers State with the aim of damaging the security network ahead of the rerun elections.
He wondered why anyone would be happy to destroy Rivers State just because they wanted to satisfy the politician who funded the APC national elections, using Rivers State resources.
