Rivers govt disowns usage of drones to monitor election | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The Rivers Commissioner for Information, Dr Austin Tam-George, has described as untrue the report that the state government plans to deploy drones to monitor the rerun elections in the state.

He told Newsmen in Okrika on Saturday that the Nyesom Wike-led government was deeply interested in ensuring free, peaceful and credible legislative rerun elections.

“That is a lie, we never contemplate using drones to monitor the elections, we are interested in following, casting our votes and ensuring they count,’’ he said.

He said that the Peoples Democratic Party had directed its members to be peaceful but vigilant.

“We are opposed to violence and electoral criminality, we will only use peace and legitimate means to ensure that nothing illegal happens,’’ he said.
