Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has accused the President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government of working with security agencies to disrupt the forthcoming 2019 governorship election in Rivers and Akwa Ibom States.

According to Wike, the plan was to mobilize the rigging security apparatus from other states to these two states for the manipulation of the governorship elections in the state.

“When I raised the alarm that the Federal Government was plotting to plant 800 guns in Rivers State to destabilise the state, it is the truth; it is real,” he said during a courtesy visit by the Netherlands Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Robert Petri.

He further urged the European Union to pay closer attention to the two elections.

On Tuesday, 5 All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers invaded the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly with the aide of the Nigeria Police in an attempt to impeach the Speaker of the House, Onofiok Luke, and Governor Udom Emmanuel.
