APC demands removal of Rivers electoral head

22 December 2015, 15:35

Port Harcourt - The All Progressives Congress (APC) is demanding the dismissal of Rivers State immediate past Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Gesila Khan.

This follows the party’s victories at the Court of Appeal.

Recently, the Court of Appeal ruled in favour of the nullification of the Governorship and National Assembly polls held under controversial circumstances earlier this year.

APC thus congratulated its governorship candidate, Dakuku Peterside, and the other candidates over a ruling it said had restored hope to Rivers people to elect their leaders in peaceful re-run elections to be held soon.

“We hereby ask the Independent National Electoral Commission to immediately sack the Rivers State immediate past Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Dame Gesila Khan,” said Davies Ikanya, APC Rivers Chairman.

Ikanya said Khan had supervised the ‘broad daylight robbery called elections and brought shame and embarrassment to INEC as allowing her to conduct any form of election in any part of Nigeria will be an invitation to anarchy.’

“Removing her as INEC REC of Rivers State should not be enough until such a greedy woman is totally removed from our political system as she represents evil and bad omen to the future of Nigeria and the change mantra of this administration,” Ikanya said.
