BEVERLY HILLS, December 10, (THEWILL) – The Rivers Commissioner for Information, Dr Austin Tam-George, has described as untrue comments in some quarters 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 People Democratic Party had directed its members to be peaceful but vigilante.

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