INEC, police, APC conspiracy threatening Nigeria’s democracy –Wike

Rivers State Governor , Chief Nyesom Wike , has said that the conspiracy among Independent National Electoral Commission , All Progressives Congress and the Police remains a threat to the nation ’s democracy .
Speaking on Friday to the Inter - Party Advisory Council at the Government House , Port Harcourt, Wike stated that following the use of the police to deny the people of Rivers East Senatorial District their mandate , the APC had made it their official policy .
The governor claimed the strategy being adopted by the APC was experienced in Rivers State during the rerun elections , saying , “We have to alert all other Nigerians about this strategy .
“ The alarm we have raised on the printing of fake result sheets was correct . They used Special Anti-robbery Squad to abduct INEC officials and smuggle in fake results . ”
He called on all political parties to be vigilant and stop the actualisation of the plot of the APC to rig the 2019 polls.
“ They know Nigerians are tired of being deceived. That is why they will plan to massively rig the 2019 elections . As IPAC members, you must be vigilant . They will do everything possible , including killing dozens of persons to remain in power . This is because the people have rejected them , ” he said.
The governor said that despite the anomaly that greeted the Rivers East Senatorial District election , INEC had remained silent , even as he stated that INEC must offer explanation on the fraud APC used the police to perpetrate .
Maintaining that democracy was under threat , Wike added that all other political parties participating in the forthcoming Anambra governorship election must be vigilant as the APC was planning to rig the poll .
In his remarks , the Secretary of IPAC , Chief Perry Opara, said that Rivers State was working because Wike was investing in development projects .
Opara commended the governor for carrying all political parties along in the state , urging the Federal Government to imbibe the same pattern, which will reduce tension in the country .
Reacting , the State Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mr . Chris Finebone , said INEC had already accepted the truth about the Rivers East Senatorial District election .
“ Governor Nyesom Wike should accept the fact that the Senator representing him is Chief Andrew Uchendu of the All Progressives Congress , APC . It is no use for him to whine and keep living in denial. INEC that conducted the elections has accepted the truth .
“ The police that provided security have stated so. But most of all , the tribunal and appeal court have all concurred . Governor Wike may wait till God ’s judgment Day to make another appeal if he so desires.
“ If he fails to accept the glaring fact and move on with the rest, he will be leaving himself behind and that will be unfortunate , ” Finebone added .
