Popular newspaper columnist, Donu Kogbara has aired her view regarding the governorship tussle in Rivers state, where she not only prayed for a free and fair election in the state, but hoped that the governor of Rivers state will freely allow the masses to vote their choice of their candidate in the forthcoming governorship and state house of assembly elections.
Donu Kogbara, who was also a former journalist for BBC while speaking on Arise News noted that if Governor Nyesom Wike allows for such free access, then, the masses will be able to test how popular his candidate, being Fubara his.
Speaking further, she claimed that there hasn't been any evidence of willingness for a free and fair election in the state, which beckons for concern.
In her words... "Governor Wike has his own candidate, and if only he could just let people vote, then, we would be able to test the popularity of his candidate, because it seems that there is very little evidence for a free and fair election"
One will not be wrong to say that Governor Nyesom Wike has continued to be at the front, campaigning for his own candidate for the governorship election.
