“Members of the APC were brazenly, crudely and violently prevented from exercising their inalienable right to elect those they wanted. Those same characters and forces that stole our votes by violently denying us the right to vote the last time are at it again.
In the months and weeks leading to this Saturday’s election, they have employed the use of violence and threats to lives as tools of intimidation and harassment, all aimed at preventing us from coming out to vote.
They have turned our hitherto peaceful state, into a haven of brazen criminality, culminating in killings and maiming of innocent citizens.
However, it is gratifying to know that the Commander -in- Chief, President Muhammadu Buhari, has assured the security of lives and property in the state, before, during and after the elections. Mr President has graciously provided adequate security through the length and breadth of the state.
I therefore enjoin you all to come out en masse to exercise your civic rights on Saturday. To this end, the reign of terror in some of our Local Government Areas, leading to senseless killings will not be tolerated as the security agencies have been directed to ensure the safety of all before, during and after the elections.
I therefore implore you all to come to exercise your rights to vote. Now, that you have a chance to vote, and your vote will count, choose wisely. Vote APC!
Finally, I call on all Rivers people not to submit to any form of intimidation and threats. Coming out to elect candidates of your choice is your constitutional right and civic responsibility.
No one, I repeat, no one can stop you from exercising this right.
Once again, let me assure you all that your security and safety is guaranteed. Come out and exercise your right to vote!!!”
Thank you and God bless you.
H.E. Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi
Honourable Minister of Transportation.
