The Rivers State Governor, Nyelsom Wike, has once again descended on the ruling party, APC, claiming every reasonable Nigerian has lost confidence in the ability of the party to provide good governance because of the numerous challenges bedevilling the nation and the failure of the government to find lasting solutions.
Wike stated this on Wednesday via his official Twitter handle @GovWike, noting that Nigerians would rather seek an alternative party in the 2023 general elections than voting for a party that has since found no formula to solve the country’s numerous challenges. He stated further that the party is also aware of this, and that is why it is delaying the passage of the amendment of the electoral bill, so as to afford them the opportunity to manipulate the 2023 election.
According to Wike, the Nigerian Electoral Act needs to be amended to ensure a truly democratic election in the forthcoming polls, but the All Progressive Congress is intentionally delaying it all because it still wishes to manipulate the forthcoming election after they might have been rejected at the pool by the good people of Nigeria.
The tweet reads:
Amending the Electoral Act would be a giant leap forward for the country as it would lead to free, fair and credible elections. Unfortunately, we are again seeing tricks and delays because this government doesn’t want it amended so they can manipulate the 2023 elections.”
The governor proceeded:
“They know people have lost confidence in the @OfficialAPCNg Government and no reasonable Nigerian would want them back”.
