No candidates, no elections in Rivers, APC threatens INEC
The All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship Campaign Organisation in Rivers State has said there will be no elections if the party and its candidates were not listed in the ballot papers.
The organisation also accused chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, of working with Governor Nyesom Wike to frustrate the party.
A statement by the Director of Strategic Communication, Tonye Princewill Campaign Organisation, said Prof. Yakubu was working with Wike to frustrate the people’s will.
He said: “Though the election postponement is not a surprise, I still expected the INEC Chairman to stubbornly push on and try to force through the elections regardless. I still see disaster come Saturday. Unless we’re on the ballot, the election won’t be smooth anywhere…”
