An old video of the Nigerian army accusing Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike of trying to bribe some of its operatives to rig the election in his favour has surfaced.

In a press conference held in 2019, the Nigerian army said that Governor Wike made an attempt to compromise them with hefty financial inducement during the election.

This comes following the accusation by residents of Rivers state that Wike allegedly manipulated the results to favour another party during the 2023 presidential election.

Although there has been no evidence, many are convinced that the Labour Party won the election in Rivers state and not the All Progressives Congress as he INEC declared.

In the resurfaced video, the army said;

"The daring attempts of the governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike to compromise security agencies particularly the security operative in the Nigeria Army with hefty financial inducement to help him in the illegitimate quashing of the free and fair electoral process to his favour."
