“Anybody  who thinks Amaechi  will give them result sheets to swap, should be  ready to swap their dead bodies. I have told the REC, you were here before, you can’t play  games with  me “.

The  governor  said it is his responsibility  to take steps to stop politicians  plotting to rig elections  in the  state  with the connivance  of INEC  National Commissioner,  Mrs Amina Zakari.

He alleged that the Vice Chanellor,  University of Port Harcourt, Prof. Ndowa Lale, was compelled  by Amaechi  and  APC  leadership  draw up  a list of  INEC  Adhoc staff dominated by  former APC  caretaker  committee  chairmen and confirmed APC  members to organise  the rerun  elections.  He announced  the  names of  the  APC leaders on the list  of Adhoc staff.

He noted that he had written  a formal letter with  proofs and details  to INEC  Chairman,  Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, complaining  of the issue.

The governor  said that President  Muhammadu Buhari should not  allow Amaechi  cause crisis in the state because  of  his personal  interest.

In his remarks, national  chairman of the PDP,  Senator Ali Modu Sheriff stated that Rivers  State  is a PDP state where the people are satisfied  with  the  performance  of  the governor.

Deputy National Chairman of the PDP,  Uche Secondus accused  Amaechi  of financing APC national campaigns using Rivers State funds when he was governor of the state.
