According to the APC, Wike urged Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members in the state to resist arrest during the conduct of the March 19, 2016 state and National Assembly rerun elections in Rivers.

Wike is also said to have warned anyone planning to rig elections in the state to write their will first.

“Some people say that I am making inciting statements. I have never made any inciting statement. But I have always said the truth,” the governor said in Port Harcourt on Thursday, March 10, according to Punch.

“Instead of them to praise me that I am supporting what the President said, they said I am making inciting statements. We will not allow anybody to rig; we must protect our votes.

“It is for us to reclaim our mandate and protect what we have and this is the opportunity to tell Nigerians that we never made a mistake last time. We will repeat the victory on March 19,” he added.

The state government had earlier accused the APC of claiming every dead person in the stateas its member in a bid to accuse Wike of orchestrating political violence.
