APC claims Wike is mobilising protest against judiciary

The party also claimed that the Governor gave out huge cash to a section of market women who went on a protest march on Thursday, October 29.

 

The All Progressives Congress (APC), Rivers State chapter, has said it has reliably been informed that the state Governor Nyesom Wike has started mobilizing different sections of Rivers people to protest against the judiciary for the tribal and Supreme Court rulings that was not in his favour.

“Two top traditional rulers in the state separately informed the APC that the embattled governor summoned them for a meeting today where they suspect that the governor may request and mobilize them to endorse protest documents against the rulings of the tribunal that annulled the so-called election of the governor and the decision of the Supreme Court that dismissed his appeal on jurisdiction of the tribunal”, the party said in a statement on Friday, October 30.

According to the APC, as part of Wike’s plan to mobilise the people of the state against the judiciary, he doled out huge cash to a section of market women who shamelessly went on a protest march yesterday (Thursday) denouncing the Nigerian judiciary and threatening the peace of the state.

The statement read: “The APC has been told that after the meeting and mobilisation of traditional rulers to protest in today’s meeting, the next group pencilled down to be mobilised is the clergy in Rivers State. Wike believes that he can finance a section of the supposed men of God to protest and publish anti-judiciary articles and paid adverts in the media extolling the embattled governor.

“We can also reveal that a section of Ikwerre Chiefs and leaders of thought made up of mainly discredited persons of Ikwerre extraction are also being mobilised to protest and place paid adverts in the media in support of Nyesom Wike against the Nigerian judiciary.

“The APC is rather surprised that the same Nyesom Wike who freely boasts of having Supreme Court judges in his pocket (whatever that means) has now resorted to underhand and primitive tactics to undermine the same judiciary.

“The APC believes that it is important to alert Rivers people and Nigerians of this fiendish level of desperation on the part of Governor Nyesom Wike which is capable of endangering an already traumatised society which the Wike brand of politics has imposed on the state already. We urge you to resist Wike’s filthy lucre as real Rivers people are proud and not enticed or excited by filthy and odoriferous money.”
