Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike yesterday urged Rivers people to resist any attempt to make them second-class citizens.

He said they should use their votes and protect Rivers and not allow anyone to intimidate them.

The governor also urged them to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).

Wike said the PVC was their power to resist those who failed in their vain attempt to use the military and the police to rig the 2019 general elections.

“Our power is our PVC. We will use it well on February 25 and March 11. 

“Let me tell you, this election will not be like 2019 when they used soldiers and used police. It will not happen again,” he said.

The governor spoke at the Kelechi Nwogu Legacy Stadium, where the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) inaugurated its campaign for Omuma Local Government Area.
