Rivers APC to sue Khan for alleged electoral fraud

08 June 2015, 13:54Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The Rivers State All Progressive Congress has hinted at suing State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Gesila Khan, days after the Inspector of General of Police Solomon Arase, ordered the official’s investigation for allegedly electoral fraud.

She is to be investigated alongside Akwa Ibom State counterpart, Austin Eni Okojie, following the contentious elections held in the respective states.

“Surely, there is no escape route for this evil woman (Khan), as we are making arrangements to sue her for the deaths and pains she brought to Rivers State and her people by organising the worst election in the annals of elections in Nigeria,” State Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, said in Port Harcourt.

“The final destination of Mrs Khan should be no other place than the Kirikiri Maximum Security Prison in Lagos and that is where we will make sure she spends the greater part of her years for the shame and pains she has undeservedly inflicted on Rivers State.”

Ikanya said the party welcomed the probe.

“The news of the probe ordered by IGP Arase came to us as a big relief. We commend the IGP for this bold step. We have shouted ourselves hoarse since the March 28 and April 11 elections, calling for the investigation of the Rivers REC, a disreputable woman who is supposed to be in jail for the needless pains she has caused Rivers State people by brazenly manipulating the results of the last elections in the State to favour the then-ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidates.”

APC is contesting the election of Nyesom Wike as Rivers governor.
