The Governor to Rivers state Government Nyesom Wike has stated that the Nigerian Army division 6 Rivers state are seriously planning to disrupt the March 9 Governorship and house of Assembly elections in the state.
Wike while addressing journalists in the state house said the Army plan to cause violence in some areas in Rivers state.
The 6 Division has mapped out local government areas where they will initiate violence to ensure that elections are not conducted as they did during the Presidential and National Assembly elections. They are plotting to cause a crisis, so that the Governorship and State Assembly will be cancelled. That is what the 6 Division is planning” he said.
Wike said despite the militarisation of the elections, there are areas that some political parties cannot win because they are the strongholds of the PDP.
“Did APC win the Presidential election in Rivers State? It doesn’t matter what they do, they will not win. There are areas that are no go areas. You don’t kill people simply because you want to win. Look at how they shed innocent blood because they want to get 25percent or they want to satisfy the ego of one or two individuals “, he said.
Governor Wike said that the PDP in Rivers State is prepared for the elections. He said the party campaigned and interfaced with Rivers people.
“We have been prepared for these elections. There is no party that campaigned the way we did. Nobody is more prepared for the elections. You cannot change the will of the people. It is difficult “. Governor Wike believes that he has revived Rivers State through massive infrastructural projects, empowerment and economic development programmes.
