A video of Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike allegedly admitting to rigging the 2023 presidential election to favour the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu is raising concerns.

Wike who was heard expressing his desire for power to come to the South has caused many to question if indeed he publicly admitted to manipulating the election results.

In the video, the Governor noted that during the election, if Labour Party comes first, APC must come second and vice versa.

According to him, that is what they (Integrity Group) did and he is proud of what he did.

He said; "We must make sure power comes to the South and in any state that has control if Labour Party comes first, APC must come second. If APC comes first, Labour Party must come second. and we did it. I'm proud to say it."

Recall that residents of Rivers state raised alarm claiming that Wike had sent his 'boys' to tamper with the election results to favour the APC presidential candidate although he belongs to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Reacting to the video; some Nigerians took to social media to share their thoughts.

@KenImeje: Patriotism is not measured by the way you sing the national anthem or the way you wrap yourself up in the national flag. Patriotism is measured by the way in which you respect the Law of the Land.

Finest: It's the boldness they use in speaking because they know they won't be arrested or jailed

Chisom Destiny: He is still saying "integrity group" and I ask, what is
@GovWike definition of integrity? If you agree on what you said, why didn't you allow the people decide which party comes first and second in your state b/w LP &APC without interfering. Integrity group in the mud tueeee!!!

Olanrewaju Ali: I can’t get over the fact that if this man had clinched the PDP ticket, some Obidients of today especially in Rivers would be his army. We thank God.

Omosebi Omololu Bamidele: Power corrupts and Absolute Power corrupts absolute.
