Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has advised the electorate in the state not to be carried away by assurances by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that it would be neutral in its conduct of the general elections.
He therefore charged the people to be ready to protect their votes and ensure that their votes count.
Wike spoke yesterday while addressing supporters during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Rally at Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.
He advised the people not to be deceived by INEC’s claims that it would organise credible polls, adding that the people should remain vigilant to protect their votes.
The governor also charged Nigerians to vote for PDP across the country for Nigeria to return to the days of performance and development, stressing that it is only under the party that sustained development can take place.
“PDP is not a party of excuses. It is a party founded on development. It is a party of performance. That is why Nigerians must return to the PDP,” he said.
