With this INEC 2019 may be a dream, Wike warns

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said Nigerians may just have to forget the 2019 general elections if the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, continues to carry on the way it is currently.

Governor Wike stated this in Port Harcourt when he received the National Executives of the Ijaw National Congress at the Government House.

According to him, INEC has been manipulating the rerun election in the state because of instructions that it must deliver for an opposition party in the state, adding that if the fraud continues, Nigerians should bid credible elections goodbye.

Wike said: “If INEC goes on with this type of electoral fraud, then Nigeria is in trouble in 2019. What type of country are we living in when there is open electoral stealing?

“They want to allocate seats to a man who took our money to sponsor their party . They said they don’t want to embarrass him for giving them our money.

“It is shocking and embarrassing that several months after INEC suspended elections in eight Local Government Areas, it has come up to concoct fake results for Tai Local Government Area”, he stated.

The governor, who said he does not believe in violence, however vowed that he would not allow the rights of the people of Rivers State to be trampled upon.
