Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) can’t win elections in the state.

Wike also accused his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi of sponsoring violence to remain politically relevant, Vanguard reports.

“Any person who loves Mr President won’t be causing unnecessary crisis for him,” the governor said while receiving members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senate Caucus.

“We have problem in the North East, problem in the South-East, so there is no need for another problem in the South-South .

“It is good that the elections were held so that Nigerians will know the truth about the polity. If elections are held 20 times, PDP will win,” Wike added.

During the visit, Senate Minority Leader and Leader of the PDP Senate Caucus, Senator Godswill Akpabio urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare the results of the March 19 elections which held in the state.

INEC had been forced to cancel the announcement of results due to the violence which broke out in the state.
