Wike Breaks Silence On Rigging Allegations, Says Nigerians Should Be Careful Of False Information

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has urged Nigerians to be careful of false information that is being circulated on social media. While speaking at the commissioning of Chokocho-Igbodo Road in Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State, Wike said that the video of him allegedly talking about rigging is fake. He noted that fake videos have been used against him during election periods, adding that the videos are out again this year and Nigerians should ignore them.

Speaking further, he said that the allegations don't move him but advised Nigerians to be careful of what they listen to on social media.

"Forget about these young boys who are posting rubbish on social media. They will put my picture somewhere, put another voice and say it is Wike. They brought one video back from 2019 and said that I wanted to bribe a soldier. In the 2016 rerun, they posted a video that I was telling somebody to rig the election. They have brought that video up again so you should be very careful of what you hear. All those things they are posting don't affect me. You know me very well."
