Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has told youth members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) not to be afraid of death.

Wike made the comment in anticipation of the December 10 rerun elections which he says the All Progressives Congress (APC) is plotting to rig.

“Can you all see the fraud this APC people are applying. After, they will say Wike is all about trouble. Which trouble are my making, I am a peace maker. You all know me to be a peaceful man,” he said according to Daily Post.

“You people have to be vigilant because we have heard that they had a meeting recently with the Inspector General of Police.

“We have credible information that they want to deploy three Police Commissioners for ordinary re-run election then later they will say the election will be free and fair, how will that kind of election be free and fair.

 “What I am telling you is that all youths must be vigilant. You all must be agile MOPOLs on that election day. You must occupy polling unit by polling unit. Do not allow anybody intimidate you with arrest. An unemployed youth who has no job and has no food to eat is already dead, so why must you fear death now,” he added.
