Lagos - Rivers State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Gesila Khan, must be jailed for her role in the alleged rigging of the general polls in the area, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said.
The party accused her of obstructing justice by blocking it from having access to relevant electoral materials with a view to seeking redress at the Election Petition Tribunal.
“In case Mrs. Khan has forgotten, we wish to remind her that there is always a day of reckoning and that it is inescapable. Since she has chosen to collude with evil men to pervert justice for pecuniary gain, Mrs. Khan should prepare for the inevitable consequences of her actions. Her chosen path can only lead to jail and to monumental disgrace,” Rivers APC Chairman, Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, said in Port Harcourt.

The party meanwhile commended President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari for sympathising with the people of Rivers State on their reported ordeal during the elections.
“We are eminently proud of the President-elect and we warmly commend him for publicly declaring that his administration will not forgive and will not forget those who perpetrated killings and arson in Rivers State during the elections.
"We assure our dear President-elect that we on our part will stop at nothing to retrieve our mandate and to ensure that those unjustly killed by enemies of democracy in connection with the elections are eventually made to answer for their crimes,” Ikanya said.
