Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is relying on the strength of the military to rig the March 19, 2016 national and state assembly rerun election in the state.
This is just as the APC candidate for Rivers south-east senatorial district, Senator Magnus Abe, has condemned the destruction of his campaign billboards and posters by suspected members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), ahead of the visit of the governor to Bori, headquarters of Khana local government area yesterday.
Wike, who spoke yesterday at Bori, during the grand finale of the PDP campaign rally for Rivers south-east senatorial district, called on supporters of the party in the state to protect their votes during the rerun.
He said, “Why are the leaders of the APC running away from election after their victory at the tribunal? They have refused to campaign. All they do is to boast that that they will flood the state with soldiers who will rig the elections.
“We have a mass movement of Rivers people who represent an army of voters. They will subdue the rigging army imported by Amaechi. ”
Meanwhile, Senator Abe, has called on security agents to apprehend those who masterminded the destruction of his campaign billboards in Bori.
