Wike charges Rivers people as he gives final statement two days before governorship election.
The governor of Rivers and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the governorship election of March 9, has declared that nothing would make him and his party be defeated during the exercise in the state.
The governor charged the people not to be intimidated by soldiers as they have a duty to vote for him and other PDP candidates on March 9, 2019. “There is no way that the PDP will lose Rivers state and they tell the world that the elections are free and fair.
“Even if we want to play politics, how would they explain to the international community that PDP lost to an unknown party that did not campaign.
“How many soldiers will they deploy to implement the rigging.
I am not worried about their bringing more troops from Sokoto and Kafanchan, God is our security.
During the presidential and National Assembly elections, they struggled for 25 percent, but they did not get it,” he said.
According to the governor, the state has passed the stage where a failed politician will direct the people on who to vote three days to the election adding that it amounted to playing God.
“Nobody should be afraid, come out and vote for the PDP. Your votes will be counted. Your votes will be protected.
“We will win on Saturday because we know that God is with us. Those who think they have the power will face God. They want to disrupt the elections to instigate postponement.
Do not fall into their hands,” he said while noting that the illegal arrests by the military will not stop the victory of the PDP during the governorship and state Assembly elections.
