Rivers State Governor Nysom Wike boasted of the impossibility of being re-elected on Saturday.
Thursday night, in a message posted on his Twitter account, he said that if his party, the Democratic People’s Party (PDP), was loose at Rivers Dtate on Saturday, it would mean that the elections are neither free nor fair.
The governor’s comment refers to the main opposition of the state, the All Progressive Congress (APC), does not present any candidate for an election in that state.
Although APC has adopted Africa Congress Congress (AAC) governor candidate Awara Biokpomabo in Saturday’s elections, it is not rigorous.
He tweeted: “There is no way that the PDP wants to lose the state and they are free.
“Even if we want to play politics, how would they explain to the international community that the PDP had lost to an unknown party that had not campaigned?”
