Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, yesterday, declared his confidence of victory in the governorship and state assembly elections in the state.
The Governor who was accompanied by his wife, Justice Eberechi Suzzette Nyesom-Wike, voted about 10.47am at Unit 7, Ward 9 of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area in Rivers State after he was duly accredited.
Addressing Journalists after voting, Governor Wike said despite the attempts to manipulate the election in some Local Government Areas, he is sure of victory.
He said: “We are hoping that it will continue to be like this. Sometimes, the voting goes on smoothly, but the main thing is at the Collation Centres.
“For now, we are satisfied and confident that we will win this election very well. We are not afraid. We don’t know how many Local Government Areas they can manipulate.
“But with reports we are getting, even though they are trying to be funny, we shall win”.
According to the Governor, the low turnout during the election was affected by the illegal activities of the military.
