Wike explained that the time had come for Nigerians to rise and speak up against the wrongs being perpetrated in Nigeria
The Governor stated: “The judiciary has been so much intimidated. It is unfortunate that the Nigerian Bar Association gave out themselves when they saw the intimidation of the judiciary, instead of them to rise and to say look, we can’t accept this.
“Today, because of fear and intimidation, it is difficult for any judge to sit and say I want to write a judgement, it doesn’t matter what will be.
“Then the security will come and tell you we saw N1million in your account, come and explain, and the judge will say, instead of this embarrassment, let me do what they want me to.
“With the way it is now, I don’t know whether there will be elections in 2019.”
As elections drew near, the Governor of Rivers State urged Nigerians to hold gatherings that will proffer solutions to the problems bedevilling the country.
