A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State who claims to be Gov Nyesom Wike’s former ally, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, is gunning for the disqualification of the governor in the coming elections.
Chief Eze has thus urged the judiciary to uphold justice and encourage forthrightness by disqualifying Wike from contesting the State’s governorship election.
The APC chieftain also commended Achinike William-Wobodo Esq, a voter, who has decided to sue in a case of forgery and perjury against the Governor and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at the Federal High Court in Abuja. The chieftain counselled the litigant not to be deterred or intimidated by the antics of the governor on his chosen stand to free Rivers State from the embarrassment that Governor Wike has turned Rivers State into.
The APC chieftain, one-time National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New PDP (nPDP), noted further that the allegations had come out at this time as a divine intervention, which he said was aimed at saving the law-abiding citizens of the State from the needless bloodshed and the deliberate physical and economic development failure the tenure of Chief Wike as Governor had foisted on the State.
Commenting on the age declaration forgery saga involving the Governor, Eze said “We have read several birthday messages from both his family members, political associates, etc celebrating his birthday on 13th December while the documents he presented to INEC and some educational institutions on oath indicate that he was actually born on March 13, 1963 and not December, 13th 1968, as he makes the world to believe. Sadly, as if he is not contented with being born on two different days the great Google on the other hand claims that Governor Wike was born on 24th August, 1967.
Eze said the affidavit contradicted other dates that the governor celebrated his birthday. He said the discrepancies made the governor to be 50 and 54 at the same time.
He said detailed examination of the affidavit also revealed another issue. “The said Collins Wike claimed that he was a resident of Obio-Akpor Local Government Area at the time he swore to the affidavit. However, Obio-Akpor Local Government Area was not created until May 3 1989, a glaring evidence that the affidavit was fake.
The APC chieftain also commended Achinike William-Wobodo Esq an elector in Rivers State, who has decided to assist the State by instituting the case of forgery and perjury against the Governor and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at the Federal High Court in Abuja and counselled him not to be deterred or intimidated by the antics of the Governor on his chosen stand to free Rivers State from the embarrassment that Governor Wike has turned Rivers State into.
