Nyesom Wike, Rivers state governor, says that the Independent National Electoral Commission was in collusion with the All Progressives Congress to rig the 2019 general election.
Wike on Saturday alleged that INEC intends to post electoral officers from APC states to Rivers during the election.
The governor made the allegation during a visit to Etche local government area of the state.
He claimed to have “authentic intelligence” of the alleged plot being hatched by the APC and INEC.
“INEC is planning to rig the 2019 general elections. They claim that they are re-deploying the 23 electoral officers in the state.
“But we have authentic intelligence report that INEC has consulted APC and they plan to post electoral officers from APC states to Rivers State.
“These electoral officers being handpicked from APC states are to help in rigging the elections in 2019.
“If they like, let them post their fathers to Rivers State, we will resist any attempt to rig the 2019 elections in the state. Our people will remain vigilant.
“They can rig in another state, certainly not Rivers. For us, we must elect our representatives through the democratic process. Nobody will intimidate us,” he said.
