Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of destroying key national institutions.
Wike who stated this on Sunday at a Thanksgiving Service for Senator George Thompson Sekibo, at the St Thomas Anglican Church in Diobu said Rivers East has no senator.
Sekibo was sacked from the National Assembly by the Court of Appeal last week.
Wike said following APC’s negative governance style, the police and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) have metamorphosed into rigging machines threatening the peace of the country.
According to him, the Appeal Court judgment, which led to the loss of Rivers East mandate is a fallout of the “unfortunate illegal alliance between the police and INEC”.
He explained the APC tendered results certified by the Police to the tribunal, which the tribunal relied on, rather than results declared by INEC on election day. He said incidentally, both results had the same serial numbers, which showed the fraud by the two institutions.
Instead of bringing change as they promised, things are getting worse. They have introduced extreme fraud in the country, especially denying the people their mandate.
Wike also said nobody should be afraid of the Police and Army in defence of his mandate in 2019.
Nobody should be afraid of the Police or Army, because liberty comes with a price. They have nothing to campaign with outside the use of security. I am ready to place myself on the line. Nobody will take Rivers State.
Speaking, Sekibo said he received unflinching support from Wike and Ikwerre all through his political struggle.
He said there was no Ikwerre agenda in his ouster from the Senate.
If it was an Ikwerre Agenda, it would have been displayed at the point of voting. At the tribunal, those who took away the mandate were not Ikwerre people.
