”This administration will demand of you to be firm and fair. What this administration expects is that after we have left, Nigerians will look at the political history and know that we served Nigeria.

“We want every Nigeria to use his PVC processed by card reader, that they have been given the opportunity and security in their various constituencies to elect who they want to elect. The rest is left to their conscience and to God,” the president said.

INEC is set to conduct re-run elections in Rivers state amid complaints from opposition Peoples Democratic Party that the commission is being used by the ruling All Progressives Congress to rig the elections.

The opposition party also claimed that the life of River state governor Nyesome Wike is also being threatened because of the elections.
