Rivers Rerun: Gov. Nyesom Wike Allegedly Caught Tape Planning to Rig Election



A tape of a phone call suspected to be between Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers and an INEC has emerged online.

In the recording published by SaharaReporters, the governor allegedly threatened to kill INEC officials who were reluctant to sign the results sheets of the just concluded Legislative Rerun elections in the state.

From the recording, the governor allegedly paid the officials to rig the election in Etche, Khana, Ikwerre, and other local government areas.

The voice on the phone said that the officials, if they do not carry out his bidding, they will not leave Rivers state alive.

    Wike does not need to threaten any INEC official for PDP to win elections anywhere in Rivers State. The tragedy of the APC government is that while the north is allowed to play their politics and have their elections without interference, the rest of the country, especially the south-south is not so allowed. And it is all about who controls oil!

    The gains from the Jonathan years on elections are all lost under this president that shouts corruption from the roof top but is the beneficiary of the best corruption network in Nigeria.
    From his sister being INEC Chair to all manners of shenanigans against the sitting governor of Rivers prior to election by state organs- police especially. The losers? The Niger Deltans. Their region is now a police state with consequent specter of business losses but for the efforts of the Governor who at least knows better than the president, and tries to paint a picture of a stable viable state, not painting your country/region black and still expecting capital in-flow.

    APC does not have the capacity to win elections in Rivers. The declared senatorial seat to the party was fraudulent. The Governor was made to leave governance to be chasing INEC/Police and other organs of the federal government all in a bid to forestall a rape of democracy. True Jonathan with hunted Amaechi, but is this not supposed to be a change era? Frauds all of them! Imagine a senatorial aspirant with powers to order police to arrest opposition members! Imagine a sitting minister commandeering an armada of police and other armed forces to destabilize a state! It can only happen in Nigeria. And the citizens are mum while the governor was shouting himself hoarse on even withdrawal of his security details. Just laugh out at the ridiculous excuse by APC-led government that the Governor’s security attaché was withdrawn because he was found to be a supporter of APC! Yes, APC, not PDP. Can it get more ridiculous than that?

    APC, hear this, election rigging is the greatest fraud against a people and her democracy

      Did you confirm it’s the Governor’s voice?
      Just how sure are you?
      Rivers people will never be more than 25% APC, at least not with Buhari in that party. We don’t have to kill anyone to prove that… not like we care about Party (PDP) though, it’s all about personality. APC should give it up already!

    How can a Nigerian governor be speaking like this: threatening lives and some of you BNers are still being sentimental and bigoted, talking about APC and Amaechi. Is it APC and Amaechi that are speaking in this particular audio? So because others do it, we should turn a blind eye to this one. It is absolutely normal abi? The day they upload Amaechi’s own, then we can talk. Until then this is about Wike.

    One day one day, these politicians will begin to eat human flesh in broad daylight, maybe by then we will come to our senses. The comments on this blog sometimes give me a heartache, seriously. Speak up against evil regardless of who is perpetrating it or it will one day consume you!

    After all Buhari & oyegun told the APC in rivers state to fight, kills & used violence if anybody hurt them during the rerun election but nobody opposed them. U can only lead a cow to the stream but u can’t force the cow to drink water. FG & APC should leave the Niger Delta alone we are tired of intimidation & oppression of APC in the country.

      Let’s hope the people referred to in the conversation are in no way related to you, maybe then you will receive some sense.

    Wike does not need to bribe or threaten any electoral official to get votes……98 percent of rivers people are solidly behind him
