APC accuses Wike of interfering with investigation into fake result sheets

10 November 2016, 15:18

Port Harcourt - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers, on Thursday accused Gov. Nyesom Wike of interfering with police investigation of those arrested allegedly printing fake INEC result sheets.

This is contained in a statement issued by the party’s Chairman in the state, Chief Davies Ikanya, in Port Harcourt.

It could be recalled that the police had on Saturday arrested some individuals allegedly involved in printing the fake result sheets, few days after the national electoral commission fixed Dec. 10 for legislative re-run elections in the state.

Gov. Wike was reported to have accused the police of plotting to cover-up the matter by transferring the case to its Zone 6 headquarters in Calabar, Cross Rivers, for investigation.

The APC described Wike’s position as misleading.

“APC’s attention has been drawn to recent utterances by Gov. Nyesom Wike aimed at interfering with police investigation concerning arrest of persons allegedly involved in printing of sensitive INEC materials.

“Particularly, the APC vehemently rejects attempts by Wike to dictate how the police will go about performing its duties.

“The governor’s statement amounts to undue interference and unbridled attempts to force the hands of the police in the direction of the governor’s choosing – of which we condemn in its entirety.

“We call on Wike, as an interested party, to desist from ongoing campaign to intimidate the Police; twist facts and mislead the public,” it said.

The APC urged the governor to stop overheating the polity, especially as the state prepares for the re-run national and state legislative elections.

It stressed that Wike must allow the police to carry out its investigations in the best way possible and within its established methods.
