The All Progressives Congress (APC) has debunked claims by Governor Nyesom Wike’s that the party wants to rig the upcoming Rivers rerun election.

Wike had earlier accused the police, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and APC of planning to rig the poll.

According to the Rivers APC spokesman, Chris Finebone, the PDP has planned to plant copies of INEC documents in the homes of opposition members so they will be arrested.

He said Wike's plan is to paint the Minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi and Dakuku Peterside, black.

Finebone also said “The idea of the PDP is to plant election materials in some homes of individuals claiming they are the APC members so as to take some of our chieftains out of circulation before the rerun election. Emma Chinda they mentioned has not been in Port Harcourt for a very long time.

“Their target is to paint Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and Dr. Dakuku Peterside black. For us, they should come forth and show us prove. Security agents should come up to tell us if the operation was genuine or not.”

The Police in River state, on Sunday, November 6, 2016, announced that it arrested three people for allegedly printing fake ballot papers for the re-run election in the state.
