 2019 Polls: Gov Wike reveals INEC staff he won’t allow in Rivers, blasts Buhari

The Governor said this yesterday, while speaking during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign rally at Ikwerre Local Government Area, in Omagwa.

According to him the N-power list was concocted to favour the All Progressives Congress, APC, with a view to rigging the elections.

He said, “I heard that INEC wants to use N-power personnel as ad-hoc staff for the elections. This is a ploy to rig the elections.

“N-power personnel will not be allowed to serve as INEC ad-hoc staff in Rivers State. If you bring them, we will chase them away.”

Wike went on to say that Nigerians should blame themselves for allowing a man without knowledge of the economy to emerge as president of the country.

“The mass unemployment across the country is due to the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari as president; Nigerians should share in the blame for their suffering.

“We took our future and mandate and handed over to people who don’t understand job creation,” he said.

Wike charged the people to vote for the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, for his understanding of the economy and ability to create jobs.

“All his life, Atiku has been involved in job creation. He is one of the highest employers of labour in Nigeria,” he noted.
