Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said the Independent National Electoral Committee (INEC), and security agencies are under pressure to compromise the October 10, 2020 gubernatorial election in Ondo state after the All Progressives Congress (APC), lost last Saturday’s gubernatorial election in Edo State.
Wike, who spoke during a live interview on Channels TV Sunrise Daily in Portharcourt on Friday, said he hope INEC and security agencies will resist the pressure being mounted by the APC.
“Having lost Edo State, everything will be done not to lose Ondo State because they know that will mean the end of APC.
“It is such pressure that is on INEC and the security agencies now that may lead to their compromising.
“I fear that INEC and the security agencies may succumb. But I pray they resist it and continue to defend democracy.
“In Ondo State, the will of the people are against them and incumbency will not work,” he said.
