Wike: Stop blackmailing people – APC tells Governor

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state

Wike had earlier alleged that he caught the Rivers police commissioner, on camera, planning with the APC to rig.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to Governor Nyesom Wike’s accusation that its party, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the police want to rig the rerun election.

In a statement signed by the Rivers APC spokesman, Chris Finebone, the party called on Wike to stop blackmailing stakeholders in the December 10, 2016 poll.

According to Punch, Finebone said “The APC wishes to call on Governor Nyesom Wike to immediately desist from his present free-for-all blackmailing of critical stakeholders in the December 10 rerun elections.

“The result of the present situation is that Governor Nyesom Wike is feeling totally vulnerable and jittery. In his helplessness, the governor has resorted to crude blackmail against all the stakeholders in the December 10 rerun election.
