Any attempt to use Federal might to manipulate already collated results will be counter-productive—Governor Wike

Any attempt to use Federal might to manipulate already collated results will be counter-productive—Governor Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that any attempt  to  use the  Federal  might to manipulate already collated  and declared results in a the rerun elections  will be counter-productive  as it will be  resisted.
He called on Nigerians  to  advise INEC  to release  all the results of  constituencies  where collation and declaration  have been concluded.
Speaking  at  the  Government House, Port Harcourt when he granted audience  to  the Rivers State   Federated Correspondents Chapel of  the  Nigerian  Union of  Journalists, NUJ, Governor Wike  said that the Federal might was deployed  because the APC  wanted to  rig the rerun elections  in order to  impeach  him.
He said: “Results  in all the LGAS where elections  were concluded are already in the public  domain.  You want to use the Federal  might  to  manipulate already collated results, that is where the crisis  will  come.
“I call on INEC  to  immediately release  all results  of constituencies  already  collated and declared. “
The governor  added: “Part of the reason  why they came with severe force was to rig to impeach  me. The  impeachment plot  has failed “
He stated  that  whenever  the next set of elections  will be held, the people of Rivers State  will  still resist any form of electoral malpractices.
“Whenever you  reschedule the remaining rerun  elections,  the people will still resist rigging”, he said .
The governor said that INEC was alerted about the pre-election  challenges,  but the commission  choice to ignore all patriotic communications.
He reiterate: “INEC  has no power to cancel already  collated  and  declared results.  Because  they know that a particular  party has lost the elections, they want to  manipulate  the process “.
On security,  Governor Wike  explained  that  the  deliberate regular   destabilisation  of the  security  agencies  was responsible  for  the  security  challenges  being experienced.
He said that before a security  head gets acquainted with the dynamics  of  the  state security architecture ,  he will be  transferred  because of the feeling  that he is getting  too close  to the state Governor.
Earlier,  the  Chairman of the Rivers State Federated Correspondents Chapel, Mr Ernest Chinwo congratulated  Governor Wike  over his Supreme Court victory.
He commended  the  governor  for his development  strides that have helped in improving  the  economy  of the state.
