Governor Wike Says APC Would Have Tackled The Judiciary.


Rivers East Senatorial District: Governor Wike says APC would have tackled the Judiciary

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared  that the leadership of the All Progressives Congress  (APC) only launches  campaign of calumny against the Judiciary when they  lose cases, but applaud them each  time they emerge victorious.
 The governor  also stated  that the  outcome of the litigation  on the Rivers East Senatorial District Seat has confirmed  the alarm he raised that INEC and police  were in partnership  to rig elections in the state.


Speaking  during a stakeholders  meeting with leaders of Okirika and Ogu-Bolo  Local Government Areas at the Government House Port Harcourt on Saturday, Governor Wike said: "Now that we have  lost, nobody is saying that the Judiciary is corrupt. They  are not saying that the Judiciary is corrupt because they have  won.
"Tomorrow  if we win, they will say Judiciary  is corrupt. Then they  will  send security operatives to arrest the judges. Nobody will  bother to go now  and  arrest the judges to find out what  happened ".

The governor  regretted that when  the ChiefJustice of Nigeria visited the state to flag off the construction  of the State Judges Quarters, the APC went  to town, claiming  that the PDP will procure all judgments  at the Courts.

He noted: "But now, you will not see them claiming that the judgment was procured. I urge you  to continue to  have confidence  in the Judiciary ".

Governor Wike  asserted  that police colluded with APC to tender concocted results at the tribunal , which was relied upon  to sack Senator George Thompson Sekibo.

He said: "Remember, last year , I raised an alarm that INEC and Police were planning to rig the rerun elections. We caught people printing INEC result sheets and reported the matter.  Somebody was arrested. They sent  the person to Zone 6 Calabar and granted him bail. Till now, they are  yet to complete investigations into that  critical  matter.

"INEC declared results. All of us know that if elections are held twenty times, Senator George Thompson Sekibo will win. INEC printed their own  result  sheets, same serial numbers, these people printed their own  result sheets with same INEC  serial numbers.  You ask yourself, how did they get to know INEC serial numbers.  Because  they could not smuggle in their own result sheets, INEC declared the authentic results.

"Unknown to us, they had gone to connive with the police. That tells  you what they  want to do in 2019. Thank God, they  have alerted us. Instead of them to write INEC to give  them the certified true copies of the result sheets, they  went to the police. Police are now in custody  of INEC results.  Police certified their own and gave them ".

The governor  said that while INEC  authentic  results  were rejected, that manufactured by the Police High Command  was admitted by  the tribunal.

He said: "I have no trouble  with that, but I thought  that the reverse should have been the case. It has opened our eyes ahead of 2019".

In his remarks, Senator George Thompson Sekibo stated that Governor Wike  stood  with him all through  the struggle.  He assured  the governor  of the support of Okrika people at all times.

He said contrary to insinuations, his loss at the Appeal Court has nothing to do with the so-called Ikwerre Agenda .

He said: "I have been sacrificed and buried, but PDP will come  back stronger and better . We shall stand with  Governor Wike".

Also speaking , Former Minister of Transport, Dr Abiye Sekibo thanked Governor Wike for his support for Senator George Thompson Sekibo.

He said: "The Okirika people are a political force and they stand behind Governor Wike ".

Speaking on behalf of the Traditional Rulers, King Nicholas Ibiebele Nimenibo, Amanyanabo of Ogu  assured the governor  of the support of Okrika people in the  discharge of his duties.
