Governor Nyesom Wike is currently disturbed in the oil-rich Rivers state due to the political rivalry with the ruling party, All Progressives Congress as the National Assembly election draw closer.
Governor Nyesom Wike is reportedly scared of the All Progressives Congress, APC despite his recent victory at the supreme court.
The governor expressed his concern while speaking with journalists in Port Harcourt through his special adviser on political matters, Pastor Monwan Etete; The Leadership reports.
“They have realised that suddenly they have lost everything in the state and having realized that they got the money used in sponsoring APC in last year’s election from Rivers state, they will want to do everything possible to collapse everything the former government of Goodluck Jonathan put in place.
“There is also fear that because APC does not have majority in the National Assembly, they will want to do everything possible to manipulate the re-run elections so that they can form majority in the National Assembly, and then at the state level, install the speaker.
“When the governor (Wike) said anybody that wants to come and rig the election in Rivers state should prepare his will and APC reacts the way they do, people should ask why they find the governor’s warning worrisome. The Rivers state government will ensure that there is no violence in the re-run elections.
“APC thought they will get judgment from the Supreme Court which was why they fixed the re-run election on February 6 so that they will just take the PDP unawares and then over-run us at the polls. But they are disappointed.”
