Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has opined that President Muhammadu Buhari is not willing to render transparent elections to Nigerians in 2023.
According to Wike, the All Progressives Congress, APC, members of the National Assembly’s opposition of electronic transmission of election results amounted to a coup against Nigerians who want free, fair, and legitimate elections.
Wike called for a free and fair election where Buhari would give way for the electronic transmission of election results to help the process.
He said: “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?
“I can’t believe anybody who went to school in this digital period, will vote against electronic transmission of results. What kind of country is this? What kind of National Assembly members do we have?”
“If Jonathan did not believe in the transparency of the election, he would not have allowed card reader to be used. So, he introduced the card reader as a sitting President, knowing fully well that that could be an albatross to him. But he said no, I want us to move to the next level.
“Mr. President cannot tell us that sincerely he wants to conduct a free, fair, credible election. Let nobody deceive you. It is very clear that there is no sure intention at all.”
