In Rivers: ‘We call on Wike desist from misleading the public’- says APC

In a statement issued by the All Progressives Congress (APC) chairman in Rivers’s, Chief Davies Ikanya, on Thursday accused Gov. Nyesom Wike of interfering with police investigation of those arrested allegedly printing fake INEC result sheets.

 Gov. Wike was reported to have accused the police of plotting to cover-up the matter by transferring the case to its Zone 6 headquarters in Calabar, Cross Rivers, for investigation.

The APC described Wike’s position as misleading.

“APC’s attention has been drawn to recent utterances by Gov. Nyesom Wike aimed at interfering with police investigation concerning arrest of persons allegedly involved in printing of sensitive INEC materials.

“Particularly, the APC vehemently rejects attempts by Wike to dictate how the police will go about performing its duties.

“The governor’s statement amounts to undue interference and unbridled attempts to force the hands of the police in the direction of the governor’s choosing – of which we condemn in its entirety.

“We call on Wike, as an interested party, to desist from ongoing campaign to intimidate the Police; twist facts and mislead the public,” it said.

The APC urged the governor to stop overheating the polity, especially as the state prepares for the re-run national and state legislative elections.

It stressed that Wike must allow the police to carry out its investigations in the best way possible and within its established methods.
