The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has revealed that he is ready to sacrifice his life to see that the All Progressive Congress, APC, does not come into power in the state.
Nyesom Wike made this known on Sunday sparking fears that the state elections in 2019 could be as violent as previous elections.
Speaking on his preparations to defend the honor of his party, Wike was quoted by his spokesperson to have said: “I am ready to place myself on line, nobody will take Rivers State.”
The statement which was released by the State Governor’s spokesperson, Simon Nwakaudu, following his visit to the St Thomas Anglican Church in Diobu further added that “2019, they will not succeed. As far as we are concerned, we have no senator in Rivers East. The man going there has no capacity to represent us,” while making mention of the recent ruling by the Court of Appeal which annulled the election of a PDP senator and replaced him with an APC candidate.
During the thanksgiving service which held on Sunday, the state governor also stated: “Nobody should be afraid of the Police or Army, because liberty comes with a price. They have nothing to campaign with outside the use of security. I am ready to place myself on line, nobody will take Rivers State.”
