Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has mocked Nigeria and the country’s inability to conduct credible elections after several years of practicing democracy.
Wike spoke on Friday at the Government House Port Harcourt during a solidarity visit by the leaders and people of Okrika and Ogu/Bolo Local Government Areas.
He said, “It is unfortunate that up till now, we cannot conduct free and fair elections in Nigeria. It is unfortunate that the giant of Africa lacks the capacity to conduct credible elections.”
While commending the Wakirike women for defending the Rivers mandate against the invading soldiers, Governor Wike urged Rivers people to always ensure that their votes count during elections. “At all times, continue to defend and protect the Rivers mandate”, he said.Photo Credit: Getty
