Fears are rife that the 2019 elections may be marred. If this happens, hold the security agencies and the electoral umpire responsible. The fears seem to be so real that the EU officials paid a visit to the Buhari Campaign Organisation to extract commitments to elections. Campaign DG Chibuike Amaechi made a promise of credible polls even when he knew he meant the opposite.

This is indication of fears on the side of the international community, a recurring decimal that characterize Nigeria's elections. Of all these, Rivers faces the worst threat because everything has been “put in place” to write results and bring down Gov Nyesom Wike at all cost.
The National PDP ex-Councilors Forum has condemned in its entirety the continued detention of the immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Peter Ayodele Fayose by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), calling on President Buhari to stop using the anti-graft agency to fight opposition in the name of fighting corruption.
