Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said the rejection of electronic transmission of election results by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led National Assembly, was tantamount to a coup against Nigerians by Buhari’s government
The Governor made this remark at the presentation of the nomination letter of ‘2020 Governor of the Year Award’ which was given to him by the management of the Leadership Media Group at the Government House, Port Harcourt.
He said that President Buhari’s failure to convince APC lawmakers to support the inclusion of electronic transmission of election results in the Electoral Act was proof of a plan to rig the future elections.
“Those who voted against e-transmission of results should be ashamed of themselves. They never mean well for this country.
“If you are a member of the National Assembly and you voted against electronic transmission of results, your children should call you and say ‘daddy, are you well?’
“It is a coup against the people, and when you plot a coup, you know the consequences of plotting a coup. National Assembly members have plotted a coup against Nigerians and Nigerians should hold them responsible. All they are planning is to rig the election because they know Nigerians have abandoned them,” Wike said.
