Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said the Independent National Electoral Commission lacks the capacity to conduct credible polls in 2019. He spoke at the Government House Port Harcourt yesterday when he granted audience to the Senate Committee on INEC.
“Let’s not deceive ourselves; INEC is not prepared for credible elections. If there is an agency that is not prepared for 2019, it is INEC. I have no confidence in INEC. There is no amount of INEC’s preparations that will convince me.
“INEC chooses how it interprets laws to suit those they support. They choose the court orders to obey and the ones to disregard.
“In one state where it favours a particular, they obey. In another state, INEC will claim they are yet to see judgments not in favour of the party they support.”
Speaking further, the Governor said; “In 2019, whoever wants to manipulate the process to destroy the outcome, the people will come after that person and the family.”
“We will not agree that for anybody to rig elections here in Rivers State. Nobody will do anything contrary to the will of the people,” he added.
