    Breaking: Rivers Re-run, Wike Blasts Buhari's man over loots. See Details Here!


    Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state on Sunday, December 11, lambasted the Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti- Corruption (PACAC), Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN)
    He described Sagay as “a false intellectual with a broken moral compass and beneficiary of the current dictatorship of the All Progressives Congress-led government”.
    The governor, in a statement by the state’s Commissioner of Information and Communications, Dr. Austin Tam- George said Sagay is frustrated owing to the inability of the APC to overrun the state and loot its treasury dry.
    The governor was responding to an interview granted by Sagay in which he said the desperation of politicians in Rivers led by Governor Wike is making it impossible for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a free and fair election in the state.
    According to Sagay “Definitely, INEC is doing very well now. The case of Rivers state is not the fault of INEC in any way because we have totally determined and desperate politicians, led by the state governor, Nyesom Wike. These ones are determined that there will be no free and fair elections in Rivers state.”
    Tam- George said contrary to Sagay’s claim, Governor Wike has consistently called for credible poll in Rivers while urging the people to defend their right to freely choose their leaders with their blood.

    “Prof. Sagay is an irresponsible defender of the APC’s regime of impunity. He is a happy beneficiary of the current dictatorship. No one in Nigeria takes Sagay with a pint of seriousness. He is one of the pseudo-intellectuals seduced by the honey of power”.
    “Sagay's incessant and unwarranted attacks on governor Wike betray his frustration at the repeated failures of the APC government to overrun Rivers State, and loot the State's treasury”.
    “Governor Wike has consistently called for a free, fair and transparent electoral process in Rivers State. This is a sovereign and non-negotiable right of the Rivers people. And we will defend this right with the last drop of our blood”.
    “Our leaders will never be chosen for us by any one from Katsina, Abuja or Sambissa Forest.
    Sagay is a false intellectual with a broken moral compass” the statement said.
    In a similar vein, Wike has called on INEC to release the Rivers East Senatorial District and Rivers West Senatorial District untampered with, declaring that Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP ) candidates have already won both elections based on results from polling units .
    In a statement signed by Simeon Nwakaudu, special assistant to the Rivers state governor , electronic media, Wike also called on INEC to immediately release the results of Andoni /Opobo-Nkoro Federal Constituency and Andoni State Constituency also won by the PDP.
    In an interactive session with journalists on Sunday , Governor Wike said it has never happened in the history of elections that the Rivers East Senatorial District result declaration exceeded 24hours
    According to him , the result of Rivers East has been held down by the plots of INEC , the Army and the Police to manipulate the results of Emohua and Ikwerre Local Government Areas for the purpose of concocting the senatorial results in favour of the APC .

    He said: “As I speak with you, they are doing APC wins”.
    The governor said that since the conclusion of voting, INEC has been playing pranks, moving collation back and forth from Emohua to Port Harcourt to create room for rigging.
    “For now, all the collation officers have refused to be compelled to declare false results. As such, the collation officers have left and INEC has resorted to using her internal staff for the collation of results.
    “Release Rivers East Senatorial District where Senator George Sekibo has won clearly . Release Rivers West Senatorial District where Senator Osinakachukwu Ideozu has won clearly . INEC should release Andoni/ Opobo-Nkoro Federal Constituency where Abiante has won and Andoni State Constituency where Ikunyi Ibani has won clearly ,“ he said.
    He described as unfortunate the deliberate use of the Nigerian Army to deny PDP agents access to collation centres , so that INEC staff can concoct results.
    “It is most unfortunate that that they will descend to the level of win at all costs”, he said .

    The governor reiterated his statement that the Nigerian Army and SARS personnel were deeply involved in the violence that characterised the elections , pointing out that the violence claimed five lives in different parts of the state .
    He said that the half hearted denial of the military evaporates in the face of overwhelming evidence of their misconduct during the polls.
    “When the security is apolitical , you have free and fair elections . But when the security descends into the arena, the entire process is compromised,” the governor noted
