FG plans to shutdown internet access to rig the 2019 election- Gov Wike alleges

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has alleged that the Federal Government through the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) has directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to work with internet service providers to shutdown internet access during the forthcoming elections.

According to Governor Wike, shutting down internet access by the NSA and INEC is aimed at facilitating the rigging of the 2019 General elections. The governor said this when he received a courtesy visit by Savannah Centre Council on Peaceful and Violence Free in Nigeria at the Government House Port Harcourt.
"The National Security Adviser has met with INEC to ensure that internet service providers shutdown the internet, so that foreign bodies won't see what's happening in the country during the elections. They will jam all the frequencies and internet services to stop real time communication during the elections. This plot to rig the forthcoming elections is a recipe for violence. They will not succeed in whatever they are planning. The world will be informed about their criminal activities".
The governor said that the negative actions of the Buhari administration indicate that they will not accept defeat when they lose the forthcoming elections. He advised President Muhammadu Buhari to emulate Former President Goodluck Jonathan who placed Nigeria above personal consideration.
"I don't think this administration will willingly accept defeat. They should emulate Former President Goodluck Jonathan who lost elections and accepted the outcome. There was no litigation. He went back home and did not generate crisis", he said.
