BREAKING NEWS: Show me evidence I’m working for Tinubu, Wike questioned LP



The Labour Party raised concerns on Saturday night regarding the alleged influence of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on the results of the presidential and National Assembly elections held in the state. The party took to Twitter to voice its suspicions, claiming that Wike was manipulating the outcome of the elections in favour of the All Progressives Congress in his hometown, Rumueme. According to the LP, their presidential candidate Peter Obi had a significant portion of the votes in the South-South state, putting him in the lead. CONTINUE READING

The party’s tweet stated, “This is from a returning officer with INEC. Rumueme 7A 034, Gov. Wike’s Village. Wike is at the rec centre to influence results in favour of APC. Obi won hands down in Rivers.”

However, the Peoples Democratic Party responded immediately, refuting the allegations as unfounded. The Director of Publicity and Communications for the Rivers State PDP Campaign Council, Chief Ogbonna Nwuke, defended the governor in a statement on Sunday, saying that the claims made by the Labour Party were baseless.

Reacting to the allegations made by the Labour Party, Chief Ogbonna Nwuke, the Director of Publicity and Communications for the Rivers State PDP Campaign Council, vehemently denied the claims, saying, “This is all nonsense! Governor Nyesom Wike does not own INEC and urges the Labour Party to show proof of its allegations.”

Nwuke went on to explain that the governor has no power to interfere with the legitimate function of INEC staff or to influence the outcome of the elections. He added that there was no statement from INEC to suggest that its staff were being harassed, saying, “So, where are these unverified allegations coming from?”

Expressing his frustration at the lack of evidence to support the accusations, Nwuke stated, “We are tired of listening to baseless claims that are not backed by verifiable facts. Those who are accusing Governor Nyesom Wike of attempting to suppress votes should show verifiable proof.”

He challenged the accusers to provide pictorial or video evidence of the governor in any INEC facility or audio proof of him engaging with INEC officials to back up their spurious claims.

Nwuke concluded by assuring the public that Governor Wike would never attempt such a thing, saying, “Governor Wike knows the implication of doing such a thing. Let me say emphatically that Wike will never do such a thing. This is all trash.”
