APC challenges Wike to reveal how INEC will rig rerun poll

15 September 2016, 15:26

Port Harcourt - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers, on Thursday challenged Gov. Nyesom Wike to reveal how the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) planned to rig the legislative rerun election in the state.

This is contained in a statement issued in Port Harcourt by Chris Finebone, APC Publicity Secretary in the state.

Finebone said that the APC was not surprised by what it termed “wild allegations” by the governor, stressing that it was in line with his character.

The statement read in part: The allegation is part of Wike’s preparations for “electoral mischief.”

“If indeed the governor is serious about his discovery and he was referring to the APC when he made reference to the opposition, then we challenge him to make public his findings.

“We believe that it is mere smokescreen by Wike to divert attention from his readiness to deploy from his unholy book of electoral mischief and the APC is ready for him,”

 “INEC must ensure that every aspect of the forthcoming rerun elections in Rivers is transparent and credible to prove Gov. Wike wrong,” he said.

The APC spokesman also berated the Rivers House of Assembly for amending some laws to enable the governor appoint local government caretaker committees in perpetuity.

“We believe that what the Rivers Assembly has been goaded into doing is a naked rape of democracy reminiscent of the dark ages.

“Those embarking on this political journey will ultimately find out that they will be held to account for their actions someday."
