Nyesom Wike Nyesom Wike

A tweep has alleged that Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike has using his political thugs to force electorates to vote for Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The tweep with the handle @firstladyship wrote: Wike is the No. Enemy of Democracy. His thugs are moving mad in Rivers state, especially in Port Harcourt. @GovWike's boys are forcing people to vote for Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Wike is the devil himself.

Her claim has generated several reactions on social. MyNigeria couldn't verify her claim at the time of filing this report.

Wike is part of a group of aggrieved governors from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who are against the leadership of the national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu who is an ally of the presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Meanwhile, Wike of Rivers got disappointed in his polling Unit, Ward 9, Unit 7, Obio/Akpo Local Government Area on Saturday as the BVS failed to accredit him to enable him to cast his vote.

The BVA failed to recognize the thumprint or face of his wife, Suzzet Wike as the Presiding Officer, Agatha Abiokun battled in vain to have them accredited.
