Nyesom Wike, the Rivers State has tasked the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to deliver better elections.
Wike made this statement at the commencement of the construction work of Igwuruta internal roads in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state that was performed by the governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, on Wednesday.
“My problem is INEC, whether they will do what they said they will do. They are making promises now. I don’t know whether they will keep to them.
“If INEC will keep to the promises that Nigeria will get a better election, I will be so happy. Everybody will see with their eyes, Abuja does not vote. It is the people here that will vote,” he said.
The governor has said if the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), does not renege on his pledge not to interfere with the conduct of the 2023 general elections, the All Progressives Congress will be doomed.
He said, “I thank Mr President that he wants to leave a legacy of conducting a free and fair election.”
He expressed doubt concerning the public promise made by the Independent National Electoral Commission to deliver better elections to Nigerians.
The governor, however, said Buhari’s resolve means he is serious about leaving an enduring legacy of conducting free and fair elections.
