Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has commended the Rivers State Independent Electoral Commission for conducting credible Local Government Elections across the state.


The governor also commended security agencies for ensuring that the elections were peaceful by creating the right atmosphere for peaceful polls.


Speaking in an interview after monitoring the local government elections in Port Harcourt and Obio-Akpor Local Government Areas, Governor Wike said that the non-participation of the All Progressives Congress in the elections turned out to be one of the reasons why the process was peaceful.


The governor noted that the security agencies played their constitutional roles during the elections.


He said the message to the Independent National Electoral Commission is that they can conduct credible elections if they resist pressures from different quarters.


Governor Wike said that he was more interested in the peaceful and credible conduct of the elections than anything else.


The position of the Governor was contained in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Electronic Media, Simeon Nwakaudu.
