Wike accuses FG of plot to use SARS to rig 2019 poll

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has accused the Federal Government of plot to rig the 2019 general election using operatives of the Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS).

In a statement issued by his media aide, Simeon Nwakaudu,on Tuesday, Wike made the assertion during his visit to the Board of Editors of the Sun Publishing Limited on Tuesday in Lagos.

According to the statement obtained by NAIJAOXYGEN Wike stated that the so-called review of the operation of SARs following the outcry by Nigerians over the deadly illegal acts of the organisation, is merely aimed at diverting public focus.

He said: “SARS is being prepared for the rigging of elections in 2019. Time has come for people to resist these criminals in uniform because they cannot kill everyone.

“SARS has not helped in Rivers State. Rather they perpetrate criminal activities. With the sustained activities of SARS, Nigeria is heading for disaster “.

He pointed out that when Rivers State Government alerted the nation on the criminal activities of SARS across the state, the authorities disregarded the evidence presented.

He added that the same thing happened when the Inspector General of Police deliberately withdrew his security details to give the APC an advantage.

He said: “When the Inspector General of Police took his impunity to Anambra State and withdrew the Security details of the Anambra State Governor, the Senate quickly intervened because they knew that the acts of lawlessness of the Inspector General of Police were getting close”.

Commenting on the award by the Sun Newspaper, Governor Wike said it will spur him to continue the execution of projects across the state.

He said that as long as the award is based on the tangible of projects delivery, Rivers State will continue to emerge victorious.

Earlier, Managing Director of Sun Publishing Limited, Mr Eric Osagie said for the first time in 15 years, the governor has emerged as the first person to win the Sun Newspaper Governor of the Year back to back.

He said that Governor Wike was voted by the Sun Board of Editors ” for his incessant ground breaking infrastructural projects across Rivers State “.

Osagie said Governor Wike will receive the award on February 24, 2018 in Lagos. The Sun Publishing Limited lauded the governor for his developmental strides across the three senatorial districts of the State.
