The compelling material evidence exposes the massive fraud perpetrated by Wike and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the state's gubernatorial election.
If the latest material evidence implicating the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship candidate in Rivers state, Nyesom Wike is anything to go by, it would be almost impossible for him to win at the Election Petitions Tribunal.
Five governorship candidates in the state are challenging the the legitimacy of Wike’s victory in the April 11 governorship election.
Premium Times has obtained compelling material evidence that shows massive fraud perpetrated by Wike and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the state's gubernatorial election.
INEC awarded Wike votes almost five times higher than the actual, authentic total number of voters accredited with card readers and Permanent Voter Cards (PVC), which was 292, 878, the evidence reveals.
The Returning Officer for Rivers State, Osare Orumwense, declared Wike winner of the election on April 13, stating that he polled 1,029,102 votes, which represents 87.77 per cent of 1,228,614 – the fabricated number of total accredited voters, according to the emerged document.
The total number of accredited voters for the April 11 governorship election in Rivers was 292, 978, according to the 94-page document signed by the acting director in charge INEC legal Unit, Ibrahim Bawa, and Abimbola Oladunjoye, head of unit, Data Management, of the Commission’s Information Communication Technology Department.
This apparently shows that it is not possible for any candidate in the election to have polled 1,029,102 as it is in Wike’s case.
INEC Chairman, Professor Attahiru Jega, had said that the introduction of Smart Card Readers and Permanent Voters’ Cards for accreditation and voting was to prevent falsification and inflation of number of accredited voters, as seen in the case of Rivers State.
The Commission’s central server automatically generates figures of voters accredited with the card readers and PVC.
According to Premium Times, an insider at INEC said the latest figure of accredited voters in Rivers is valid, authentic and actual as that was what its central server generated, noting it would be impossible for anyone to justify the allocated excess votes.
The document shows that none of the 23 Local Government Areas/Wards recorded up to 51, 000 accredited voters.
The five candidates challenging Wike’s victory at the election petition tribunal are; Kemka Elenwo (KOWA party); Dakuku Peterside (All Progressives Congress) Charles Harry (All Progressives Grand Alliance) and Minaibim Harry (Social Democratic Party).
