Wike accuses INEC of hobnobbing with APC to rig rerun election

22 July 2016, 12:14

Port Harcourt -  Gov Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has accused the National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Mahmud Yakubu, of hobnobbing with the state Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Davies Ikanya, reports Punch

The meeting according to Wike is aimed at rigging the July 30 legislative rerun election in the state.

Wike also alleged that Yakubu met with Rivers South-East senatorial candidate for the APC, Senator Magnus Abe in company with the state APC chairman on July 19, 2016.

Addressing thousands of PDP supporters at the Rivers East PDP Senatorial Campaign Rally at Okehi, Etche Local Government Area on Thursday, Wike explained that such an action was inimical to a credible legislative rerun election in the state.

Wike further accused the INEC National Chairman of concluding plans to postpone the July 30, 2016 rerun elections in deference to the fear of defeat expressed by the leadership of Rivers State APC.

Wike according to Daily Post expressed regret over the posting of compromised policemen to Rivers State with the aim of damaging the security network ahead of the rerun elections.

He wondered why anyone would be happy to destroy Rivers State just because they wanted to satisfy the politician who funded the APC national elections, using Rivers State resources.
