Lagos - The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is undeterred by media reports Governor Nyesom Wike had recently visited Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed.
Chris Finebone, Rivers APC Publicity Secretary, said the party had “unflinching” belief that the CJN is “beyond the corrupting influence” of Wike.
The said visits come as the APC is challenging the emergence of Wike as governor in the elections held in April.

“We did not want to act in a way that would portray the CJN as someone that keeps bad company because the APC believes in the impeccable and incorruptible character of Justice Mahmud Mohammed. We also know that Nyesom Wikes cannot compromise the CJN,” Finebone said.
Finebone thus urged the public not to read much into the visits.
“The APC would like its members and the Nigerian public not to lose sleep over the governor’s visits to the CJN as the respected Chief Justice Mahmud Mohammed is a man of untainted integrity that cannot fall for Wike’s filthy lucre.”
