Abuja – The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused
Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike, of destabilising the party through vote-rigging claims
ahead of the rerun elections.
Wike made the allegation in Etche against his predecessor
and current Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.
The governor claimed he got the information from a member of
APC who attended a meeting with Amaechi in Abuja last Tuesday where the
minister reportedly made the disclosure.
“We wish to tell Gov Wike that he is simply playing mind
games because no such meeting took place and no one gave him any such
information as he claimed,” said APC Rivers spokesman, Chris Finebone.

He said Wike was attempting to "sow seeds of discord
and confidence crisis" among APC members ahead of the rerun polls set for
The polls are projected to be a two-horse race between APC
and Wike’s People’s Democratic Party.
“Gov. Wike is merely being up to his mischief best and we
would not descend to his abysmal political station by dignifying his childish
and laughable statements,” said Finebone
