Insecurity is imminent because those in charge of it are busy with plans to rig 2019 elections – Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has disclosed that the major reason there is insecurity in the country is because those who are supposed to be handling security matters are busy perfecting their plans to rig 2019 general elections.

The governor in an interview at the Government House, Port Harcourt alleged that policemen were sent for special training on how to rig 2019 elections, adding that what was happening in Ekiti State was what would happen in 2019.

He said: “Why will there not be insecurity? Those who are supposed to fight crime are working towards rigging the 2019 General Elections. You have sent 30,000 policemen to Ekiti, no wonder herdsmen and militiamen are killing in other places.

“You moved 30,000 policemen to a state. This has allowed other states to be porous. In focusing on 2019, they have allowed their major security function not to be tackled. Everyday in their meetings they talk about how to take over states”.

Governor Wike noted that based on the security intelligence at his disposal, that the APC Federal Government was recruiting more policemen specifically to rig the 2019 elections in selected states.

“They even sent Policemen for special training on how to rig 2019 General Elections. What is happening in Ekiti State is nothing compared to what they will do in 2019.

“A Government that came to power with the claim that Nigeria voted for them no longer wants to allow people to vote in 2019.

“To defend this democracy is a duty that we are ready to undertake. You cannot push the people to this level. They are pushing people to self defence. If they can do that to a sitting governor, what will happen in 2019.

“They want Rivers State by all means. Even if it means killing 500 people. But they will die, not us. We are prepared for the elections because we have something to tell the people.

“The APC Federal Government has nothing to tell the people, so they are afraid. The only instrument the APC Federal Government has is coercion, force, brutality,” he alleged.
