Wike Denies Voter Intimidation

Election 2023: Wike denies voter intimidation. The Rivers State Government has refuted claims that Governor Nyesom Wike intimidated and influenced voters by going door-to-door with the military during last Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly elections.

This was said in a statement made on Monday in Port Harcourt by the state’s commissioner for information and communications, Chris Finebone.

In response to a televised message that went viral, Finebone claimed that Wike and Dumnamene Dekor, a member of the House of Representatives, discussed committing electoral fraud.

The commissioner called the film “doctored,” claimed those responsible for it were engaged in a campaign of smears intended to harm the governor’s reputation, and he pleaded with the people to ignore it.

He said, “It has come to the attention of Rivers State Government that certain individuals have undertaken to conduct a campaign of calumny against the person of the Executive Governor of Rivers State, His Excellency, Nyesom Wike, utilizing all forms of doctored and false audio and visual materials and circulating same particularly over the Internet.

“Of particular mention is a doctored audio clip that was concocted during the 2016 re-run election in Rivers State in which they purported same to be a discussion between the governor and Honourable Dum Dekor.

“That audio concoction was duly discredited and discarded as a piece of rubbish masterminded by evil people to tarnish the image of Governor Wike.
