The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has sworn to prevent the All Progressive’s Congress, APC from getting to the helm of affairs in 2019, even if it will cost him his own life.
Speaking at the thanksgiving service of the sacked People’s Democratic Party, PDP’s Senator George Sekibo, yesterday, August 27, Governor Wike accused the ruling APC-led government of allowing corruption to strive in the country.
“Instead of bringing change as they promised, things are getting worse. They have introduced extreme fraud in the country, especially denying the people their mandate.”
“2019, they will not succeed. As far as we are concerned, we have no senator in Rivers east. The man going there has no capacity to represent us. All of us should be ready. We should be praying to God, but ready to fight.
“Nobody should be afraid of the police or army, because liberty comes with a price.
“They have nothing to campaign with outside the use of security. I am ready to place myself on line, nobody will take Rivers state”, he stated.
On the recall of Sekibo as the Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Wike blamed the sack on “a fallout of the unfortunate illegal alliance between the police and INEC”.
He accused the tribunal of relying on results certified by the police “which the APC tendered to the court rather than the results declared by INEC on election day”.
Senator George Sekibo represented Rivers East in the national assembly before he was recalled.
