PORT HARCOURT (Sundiata Post) – Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has alleged that Rivers State chapter of the All Peoples Congress (APC) has refused to  campaign for the National Assembly rerun elections slated for December 10 because of the assurances from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the security agencies that the elections would be  manipulated in their favour.

He stated that the plot to rig would come to nought because the people of Rivers State were vigilant and would not be intimidated  by  the illegal  use of security  agents to aid INEC  to rig.

He spoke at Emohua  on Tuesday  where he flagged off the  rehabilitation of the General Hospital, Emohua and the reconstruction of the Rumuakunde-Rumuche-Akpa-Abaka road.

The governor called on Emohua Youths to rise up  and defend their votes, pointing out that this is the time to send non-performing politicians on retirement.

He said: “They have refused to campaign  because they have received assurances  of rigging.

“The man who plans to hijack materials, how many heads does he have? Emohua  people must stand up to defend their votes.”

Wike urged the people of Emohua  to hold their prominent politicians to account, pointing out that most of them spent eight years in office without attracting a worthwhile project  to the local government area.

The governor said that the two projects flagged off were targeted at improving  the living  standard  of  the  Emohua people.

He noted that  the Rumuakunde-Rumuche-Akpa-Abaka road will enhance the economy  of the local government.

The governor also announced the comprehensive  reconstruction of Elele-Alimini Internal Roads and  the completion of the construction of Emohua Government Secondary School demolished by the  Amaechi administration.

In his address, the Commissioner for Works, Mr Bathuel Iheanyichukwu said the Rumuakunde-Rumuche-Akpa-Abaka road has led to the flight of investors from  the  area.

He said the reconstruction of the road will revive the economy  of  Emohua.

Rivers State Health Commissioner, Dr Theophilus Odagme, said that the rehabilitation of the General Hospital in Emohua  will create  access to  quality healthcare in the area.
