APC downplays Wike’s thanksgiving event

29 February 2016, 08:30Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The Rivers State Chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) denounced the Governor Nyesom Wike’s thanksgiving service to mark his victory at the Supreme Court.

APC Chairman, Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, instead urged Rivers people to ignore the thanksgiving campaigns by but ask the governor to provide further explanations to his “confessions” of how he got his victory at the Supreme Court.

“For example, Gov. Wike told the world while speaking on live television that he got his victory at the Supreme Court because Dr. Peter Odili directed him on who to meet and what to do.

“Let Wike also explain to the world who and who Dr. Peter Odili directed him to meet and where and where the former governor directed him to go that brought about victory for him [Wike] at the Supreme Court,”  Ikanya said.

“We know that the matter before the Supreme Court was legal and not medical, how come it was Dr. Peter Odili, a medical doctor, who would direct Wike on a purely legal matter? Surely, Nyesom Wike has not disclosed all that happened,” Ikanya stated.

Ikanya lamented that killings across Rivers State were continuing with nine persons killed across the state by Sunday morning.

At the weekend, it was reported nine people were killed.

Four people were reportedly killed each in Ahoada East LGA and Unyangala in Andoni LGAs while one person was killed in Ikwerre, bringing the total death toll to nine.

Ikanya decried the prolonged killings in Rivers State as the continuation of the violence that occurred ahead of the 2015 general election.

He attributed the sad development to the “unholy alliance” between Wike, cult groups and warlords across the state.

Wike’s government has repeatedly denied the accusations.
