Gov. Wike must stop threatening everyone – APC


The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has
reacted to what they described as the “wild and unconscionable”
assertions of Gov. Nyesom Wike at Okehi today, adding that it must be
the classical case of “an evil workman quarrelling with his tools, his
neighbours and passers-by.”

“Let it be on record that neither Chief [Dr] Davies Ibiamu Ikanya JP
nor the Rivers State South-East Senatorial Candidate of the APC,
Senator Magnus Ngei Abe, separately or as a group, met with the
Chairman of INEC or any INEC personnel at the Commission’s
Headquarters or anywhere else as contrived by Gov. Wike. If the
governor claims to have any information suggesting that any such
meeting took place, he should feel free to make the details public for
the benefit of all”, the APC Spokesman, Senibo Chris Finebone said in
a statement today .

Continuing, the party said, “The APC in Rivers State is indeed ready
to participate in the forthcoming rerun election as scheduled by INEC.
The PDP should not bother themselves as to the modus of campaign of
the APC. We are at liberty to reach the electorate the best way we
can. If our style is devoid of the typical razzmatazz, so be it.”

Noting that the APC would not serve as an advocate or mouthpiece for
federal institutions and personalities, the opposition party posited
that, “it is important for us to state that this callous and mindless
mudslinging by Gov. Wike on INEC and security agencies is true-to-type
especially when he wants to stir the water muddy in order to create a
smokescreen to perpetrate his evil machinations. The potpourri of
blackmail, threats and empty bravado are all part of his curious style
of politics.”

The APC said they are very sure that establishments like the
Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC], its Chairman and
those in charge of the nation’s security services are eminently placed
and able to respond to the ragtag and thuggish blackmail by Gov.
Nyesom Wike.

The APC called on security agencies to take notice that Gov. Nyesom
Wike has once again started issuing the kind of death threats that
resulted into the killing of over 100 persons before, during and after
the 2015 general elections and the subsequent rerun elections.

“We call on the Inspector-General of Police and heads of other
security agencies to firmly hold Gov. Nyesom Wike responsible for any
loss of life on the part of the people, residents, electoral and
security personnel in Rivers State especially during the forthcoming
rerun elections. Immunity should not be a license for Gov. Nyesom Wike
to carry on lawlessly. Rivers State is not and will never be turned
into a jungle by a single individual because of his inordinate and
obscene desires and cravings” the statement finally declared.
