Rerun Election| Write your Final Will Before Rigging – Wike Advises INEC Staff

Rivers State governor,  Nyesom Wike has vowed to treat like a political armed robber, any staff of the Indepen­dent National Electoral Commis­sion (INEC) who tries to rig the forthcoming rerun election in the state. He advised such persons to write their final will.
Governor Wike  also reacted to the recent invasion of Ogoni land and the killing of indigenes by suspected soldiers saying that desperation for power led to the killing of Ogoni people via an ill-fated military op­eration in Yeghe community in the state.
He stated that his administration would stand firm to protect the Ogoni people, saying that only those in support of ‘political armed robbery’ will kick against his declaration insisting that those who plan to rig election in the state will be resisted.
“Let me reiterate, if any INEC officer is bent on rigging the re­run elections, let him first tell his wife and children where his will is located because he will be treated as a political armed robber.
“Popularity is tested on the ground. It is not by carrying sol­diers around to intimidate voters. As your governor, I don’t carry soldiers around. How can a poli­tician be campaigning with sol­diers?” He queried.
“I will continue to threaten po­litical armed robbers. I will stand firm against those who use guns to steal votes”.
Governor Wike who led the congregation to observe a min­ute silence for those killed by the army during the ill-fated opera­tion in Ogoni land on Monday and Tuesday, announced that the Rivers State Government would cater for the needs of the widows, their children and all the loved ones of those who lost their lives.
