PORT HARCOURT (Sundiata Post) – The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed Saturday’s governorship and House of Assembly elections in the state as a sham, describing the result announced by INEC as fake as there was no election in the state in the true sense of the word.
“What took place was a macabre dance of intimidation and violence perpetrated against peace-loving APC members, after which results were written in favour of Chief Nyesome Wike of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). It is therefore evident that the announcement of winners for these polls is a travesty of justice and a rape of democracy. We insist that the purported governorship and House of Assembly elections be cancelled in their totality and a new date set for proper polls as prescribed by law. We hope that INEC will enforce the rights of Rivers people to free, fair and credible elections by heeding to this clarion call,” Rivers State APC chairman, Dr. Davies Ikanya, said on Monday morning.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10″]
Ikanya in a statement in Port Harcourt alleged that Rivers people were disenfranchised as hell was let loose throughout the State, with Rivers PDP mobilising militants who went on rampage shooting, bombing and killing 16 APC members for attempting to prevent the rigging plot of PDP in conjunction with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and some policemen.
