Governor Nyesom Wike bemoaned the alleged use of Army, police and DSS operatives in snatching of ballot papers and rigging of results in last Saturday’s Rivers State lawmakers’ re-run elections.
According to Wike who spoke today, the script is similar to what the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) party plans to use in hijacking governorship and presidential elections in 2019.
“What has happened today will not happen in 2019. Now they have told us, they will see that we will also be prepared. This will not happen again.
“I have told the security agencies, you come and collect security money from me and use it against Rivers people. Enough is enough. They will now be depending on NDDC for their funding. Let me see where it will take them to.
“Rivers people must work as brothers and sisters and defend our interests. We don’t have Police, we don’t have army, but we have God. And so, we must put our house in order and be our own police, be our own Army.
“We have no confidence in the Army, we have no confidence in the police, we have no confidence in the SSS. They have shown that there is no democracy in Nigeria.
“Wherever they are, shame unto them. Whether they are in Abuja, Plateau, Bauchi, Benue or Kano, shame unto them. Shame to the Governor of Plateau, Shame to the Governor of Bauchi , Shame to the Governor of Benue. They should bury their heads in shame.”
