In a publication on the Punch Newspaper, the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has asked the Labour Party, LP, to show proof that he is working for the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Recall that the Labour Party had on Saturday night raised the alarm that the Governor is allegedly influencing results of the presidential and National Assembly elections held in the state.
The LP who stated that results so far has shown that its presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi, had a large chunk of votes in the South-South state, accused the governor of influencing results in favour of APC in his village, Rumueme.
However, the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in a swift reaction has debunked the allegations, describing them as baseless.
The Director, Publicity and Communications, Rivers State PDP Campaign Council, Chief Ogbonna Nwuke, while defending the governor said those who are accusing the governor of attempting to suppress votes should show verifiable proof.
He also said that the Rivers State governor knowing the implications of doing such a thing, can never do that.
He said, “This is all nonsense! Governor Nyesom Wike does not own INEC and urges the Labour Party to show proof of its allegations.
