It is reported that INEC has re-scheduled the Rivers State rerun elections to fill the vacant positions of Senators, Members of House of Representatives and Members of the State House of Assembly to March 19, 2016. While addressing civil servants the governor spoke about the upcoming elctions. Gov. Nyesom Wike was quoted in Vanguard as saying : “Anyone who plans to rig an election is an armed robber and should be treated as such. If you are coming to rig an election in the state, first prepare your Will before embarking on the journey. Inform your wife or husband and go ahead to say your last prayer.”
If this is coming from the Chief Security Officer of the State then we urge everyone living in Rivers State to be very careful during the upcoming elections. We can still remember vividly the images of those killed in the state during the last elections hence our call for caution.
