Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has again lamented that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has collaborated with Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to rig elections in the country.
Wike said the alleged illegal conspiracy between INEC, APC and Police is a threat to the nation’s democracy.
The governor said this on Friday when granting audience to the Inter-Party Advisory Council, IPAC, at the Government House, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
According to him, following the use of the Police to deny the people of Rivers East Senatorial District their mandate, the ruling party has made it their official policy.
He said, “The strategy has been adopted by the APC was experienced in Rivers State during the rerun elections. We have to alert all other Nigerians about this strategy.
“The alarm we have raised on the printing of fake result sheets was correct. They used Special Anti-robbery Squad to abduct INEC officials and smuggle in fake results.”
Wike further urged all the political parties in the country to be vigilant and stop the actualization of the plot of APC to rig the 2019 polls.
“They know Nigerians are tired of being deceived. That is why they will plan to massively rig the 2019 elections. As IPAC members, you must be vigilant.
“They will do everything possible, including killing dozens of persons to remain in power. This is because the people have rejected them.
“Democracy is under threat. We must defend it.”
