Rivers APC Vows To Unseat Governor Wike

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has said that it was confident that Governor Nyesom Wike would be removed by the election petition tribunal, despite his assumption of office.

It would be recalled that Wike won the governorship election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) in the April election.

The APC chairman in the state, Dr. Davies Ikanya, however, in a statement on Saturday, May 30, alleged that Mr. Wike was unjustly declared winner by the state Independent National Electoral Commission.

“We remain confident that the Election Petition Tribunal will do the needful and sack him accordingly in view of the materials submitted to them, in view of the immorality associated with his occupation of the Government House and in view of the outcry of the people of Rivers State that he does not have their mandate to serve as their governor,” he stated.
