As tension and wrath grow among PDP leaderships regarding the surrounding by police and security agents of the hotels where PDP chieftains and governors are lodged in readiness for Saturday, 19th September 2020 Edo state governorship election, the fearless governor of Rivers state, Governor Nyesom Wike has defied any atom of fear or concession to what he calls “intimidation with police.”
The governor took to his political tweeter handle to let out his fearless disposition and concern regarding the siege by Nigerian security agents.
Governor Wike has said that police siege at his hotel is laughable and not capable of stopping him at his resolve to ensure that EDO people’s votes counts in deciding who governs the state.
“Why do these people think they can intimidate me with the police. Laughable!”, Wike tweeted.
On the other hand, former PDP’s Vice Presidential candidate, Peter Obi has warned that in the spirit of equity & fairness, Gov Wike & @OfficialPDPNig leaders on party assignment should be given equal opportunities as those of the APC.
Peter Obi also said that restricting them while Governors Ganduje, Uzodinma, and others are given unimpeded access is a negation of democracy and a caricature of the fairness promised by the APC govt.
