Elections: Rivers State Labour Party Accuses Wike Of Rigging For Tinubu

Nyesom Wike-

The Labour Party in Rivers State has pointed fingers at Governor Nyesom Wike, for allegedly influencing results of the Presidential and National Assembly elections in the state.

The party had alleged in its Twitter page on saturday that Nyesome Wike was influencing the results in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rumeueme, Obio Akpo Local Government Area, which is the Governors home LGA.

Labour Party maintained that Peter Obi won handily in Rivers State.

The spokesman of the State Peoples Democratic Party, Ogbonna Nwuke, called the allegations baseless. Nwuke asked Labour Party to provide proof of the allegations. He is quoted as saying:

“This is all nonsense! Governor Nyesom Wike does not own INEC and urges the Labour Party to show proof of its allegations.

“Similarly, he cannot stop staff of the commission from carrying out their legitimate function. INEC on its part has not issued any statement suggesting that its staff are being harassed. So, where are these unverified allegations coming from?

“We are tired of listening to baseless claims that are not backed by verifiable facts. Those who are accusing Governor Nyesom Wike of attempting to suppress votes should show verifiable proof”

Nwuke said Governor Wike knows the implications of doing anything to subvert the electoral process.
