    Why George Sekibo was sacked as Senator – Wike




    Why George Sekibo was sacked as Senator – Wike

    Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has said that the sack of George Sekibo as a Senator, was “a fallout of the unfortunate illegal alliance between the police and INEC”.

    Wike accused the tribunal of relying on results certified by the police “which the APC tendered to the court rather than the results declared by INEC on election day”.

    He stated this during the thanksgiving service on Sunday held in honour of Sekibo, who represented Rivers East in the National Assembly.

    The Governor also said APC had made the police and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to “metamorphose into rigging machines that threaten the peace of the country”.

    “Instead of bringing change as they promised, things are getting worse. They have introduced extreme fraud in the country, especially denying the people their mandate,” Wike said.

    “2019, they will not succeed. As far as we are concerned, we have no senator in Rivers east. The man going there has no capacity to represent us. All of us should be ready. We should be praying to God, but ready to fight.

    “Nobody should be afraid of the police or army, because liberty comes with a price.

    “They have nothing to campaign with outside the use of security. I am ready to place myself on line, nobody will take Rivers state.”
