Former militant leader, Asari Dokubo has claimed that Rivers State cannot have credible elections for as long as Governor Nyesom Wike, Rotimi Amaechi and Magnus Abe continue to struggle for power.
Dokubu, who spoke in an exclusive interview with THE WHISTLER, disclosed that the leaders of the two major political parties in the state would compromise any election due to their bitter war of supremacy. According to the ex-militant, their attitude and disposition to power would not guarantee free, fair and peaceful election in the state. His words: “How can you expect a free and fair election here in Rivers State when the leaders of the parties are fighting themselves, instigating divisions and conflicts in the state. “Where there’s been no peace and understanding amongst themselves internally. The ruling party in the state will stop at nothing to retain power by any means. The other party too, the leaders are fighting amongst themselves equally. “Magnus Abe and Amaechi are busy fighting over who is the superior in APC, Wike and Amaechi are also fighting who is the superior in the state. “Now tell me how there will ever be a free and fair elections in this state. When the governor and the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, are bent on Killing each other.”
