'Be honest for once' - APC to governor Wike | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged Governor Nyesom Wike of being economical with the truth.

The APC, yesterday in Port Harcourt, through its Publicity Secretary, Chris Finebone, accused Wike of lying during the thanksgiving service in honour of Senator George Sekibo, at St. Thomas Anglican Church, Port Harcourt, when he alleged that APC’s poor governance model is destroying national institutions.

APC said: “The assertion today (yesterday) by Wike that APC has destroyed institutions in Nigeria is manifestly false. Nigerians know between APC and PDP, the party that finished the nation’s institutions and brought us to this sorry pass.

“There is no evidence the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the police are collaborating to favour APC, as the PDP, INEC and security agencies collaborated with Wike and Gesila Khan (INEC’s former Resident Electoral Commissioner in Rivers, who is still on trial for alleged corruption) by handing over the electoral process to Wike and PDP in 2015. Wike is merely being haunted by his past and his shadows. Let him (Rivers governor) sort himself out and leave APC alone.

“The verdicts handed down last week by the Appeal Courts on the December 10, 2016, rerun elections in Rivers State cannot be politicised by Wike, as a means of shoring up morale among his party members. He should spare the judiciary his needless scathing criticisms. Rivers people and Nigerians are fed up with the Rivers governor’s antics of praising the judiciary when judgments favour his interest and lampooning the judiciary, if otherwise.

“The APC has taken notice of his (Wike’s) subtle threat of violence in 2019. We can only remind him that 2019 will not be 2015. Never. A word is enough for the wise.”

The party earlier described Thursday’s loss at the Court of Appeal, Abuja, by Sekibo to Chief Andrew Uchendu in Rivers East, and Olaka Worgu, also of PDP (defeated by Senator Magnus Abe of Rivers South East), as notice to PDP and Wike to start planning to vacate Government House, next year.
