A Leaked Audio Tape Has Revealed Governor Wike’s Plot To Rig The Rivers’ Election
A recorded telephone conversation released by Sahara Reporter has revealed the rigging plot of River State Governor, Nyesom Wike, with officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on the recently concluded legislative elections in the state.
The telephone conversations revealed the governor arranging with INEC officials, particularly those sent from Plateau State, to rig the election for candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in some key local government areas in the state.
One of Mr. Wike’s phone calls went to a female INEC official who was complaining that the money offered by the governor was not sufficient for the rigging task. An infuriated Governor Wike told the woman that he had already paid the electoral coordinator in Plateau State.
At one point in the conversation, when Governor Wike was told that one of the electoral officers was reluctant to sign one of the result sheets, the governor threatened to demand his money back from the recalcitrant official. Then, as if not satisfied with his threat to collect back his money, Mr. Wike voiced his intent to kill the official, stating that the man would not leave Rivers State alive.
