INEC is carrying out pre-planned activities with Gov Wike in R/S.
My party collation agents were refused to be at collation point.
Mr Nonye Kocha was replaced with Mr Progress Ogbokuma but Mrs May Mbu working with PDP refused the nomination of Mr Progress Ogbokuma and others.

The name Wike is now officially an action word, a verb in our political dictionary.
Wike:(meaning)..To beat your opponent mercilessly in an election.
(Use)….'I will wike you in the next general elections by God's grace' #RiversElectionResults #RiversElection #RiversCollation
