The Rivers state Governor also said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will bounce back in 2019.
Wike said he has lost confidence in INEC to conduct free and fair elections anywhere in Nigeria.
He said “I don’t have confidence in the present INEC. It is too inconsistent and acts outside the law. We are encouraging every candidate to contest elections and emerge through popular votes. We will not allow impunity or imposition.”
Wike also spoke on the upcoming elections in Edo state, saying “From what we have seen on ground in Edo State, this is the best time to capture the state. We have sent independent assessors to the state and they have adjudged that the PDP has the opportunity to take over Edo.”
The Governor expressed surprise that INEC will set up a committee to look into the rerun election which was cancelled.
Wike also said the All Progressives Congress (APC) deceived Nigerians in a bid to win the 2015 elections.
President Muhammadu Buhari recently held a closed-door meeting with the Rivers State Governor, Nyesome Wike at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
