He also noted that he and others had opposed the reappointment of INEC National Chairman, Yakubu Mahmood, revealing that the latter was recommended for reappointment by someone in the camp of the president elect, Bola Tinubu.
He said that under such circumstances, one does not expect success in the election.
“Some of us were opposed to the reappointment of Mohmood. The person who nominated him is Tinubu’s camp. So, what are you expecting? Success?
“Here in Rivers State, Mahmood Yakubu Mamood worked under Wike as Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund.
“So, what you are having in Rivers State is that APC, SDP and others are contesting elections not against PDP but against INEC, against police.”
