Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has explained that the forthcoming elections would not leave room for any form of electoral manipulation and intimidation from security personnel.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that Wike stated this on Tuesday at St. Martin’s Anglican Church, Omagwa Town, in Ikwerre during the inauguration of the Rivers Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Local Government Campaign.
Wike insisted that it would be a case of one man, one vote and no blackmail could thwart the collective resolve of the people on whom to support with their votes.
He said, “This time, no army will do anything. No Fakorode will do any thing. No police will do anything. Now, it is one man, one vote. All the votes must be in one basket from the governorship to the House of Assembly. The other one we are concluding. When we conclude, you will be told.
“Nobody should intimidate you. Nobody should tell you any story. We are free-born of this country. We are not second-class citizens. Nobody can tell us anything. I dare them. Let anybody do any funny thing, We’ll tell them we are from Rivers State.”
