Nigeria News – Buhari’s Refusal To Sign Amended Electoral Act, A Plot To Rig 2019 Election

On Tuesday, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, the Rivers State Governor said President Muhammadu Buhari’s refusal to sign the amended Electoral Act was a plot to rig the 2019 election.


In Port Harcourt, the Rivers State Governor spoke at the state’s Government House during the visit of Rt Rev Wisdom Ihunwo, the Anglican Bishop of Niger Delta North.

The Governor said Buhari’s refusal was a threat to the nation’s existence.

Wike stated, ”This present administration does not want the existence of one Nigeria. We don’t know if there will be Nigeria after the 2019 General elections.

“The National Assembly tried to cure the defects of the Electoral Act that led to controversies during the 2015 elections. After the passage, the President kept on giving countless excuses why he wouldn’t sign the amended Electoral Act.

“The whole essence of not signing the Electoral Act is to rig the 2019 General elections. And in the plot to rig the 2019 elections, Rivers State comes first and Akwa Ibom State is the second on their list.

“Now, they don’t want to use the smart card readers because they want to sit down and write results.

“It is painful that the President that says he is fighting corruption is leaving room for the rigging of the 2019 polls. There is no corruption worse than rigging. The President cannot set this country on fire”.
