Wike warns election riggers to stay away from Rivers

06 October 2016, 15:46

Port Harcourt - Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has warned election riggers to stay away from the state in the forthcoming legislative rerun elections in the state, reports Vanguard.

He said supporters of his administration will resist any attempt from any quarters to rig the rerun elections.

Wike made the disclosure at the commencement of the Bonny Jetty reconstruction project at the Bille/Bonny/Nembe Waterfront in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.

The legislative rerun elections in the state according to News 24 is scheduled for October

Wike said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was plotting to rig the senate and state assembly rerun elections.

"The plan of INEC and its cohorts to transplant the Edo State rigging model in Rivers State will fail, the people of the state will resist them.

"I hear some persons are 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 re-run elections in Rivers State.
