‘Wike’s destination is destruction’ – APC

The Rivers state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to act decisively in the crisis and political violence currently prevalent in Rivers state.

In a statement signed by the chairman of the APC Rivers state, Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, the party asked the president to look into the violence and prosecute the perpetrators.

“We received with happiness the recent statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari that the murderous rerun election in Rivers State was shameful, unfortunate and barbaric. We agree with Mr. President that more Nigerians have been killed in Rivers than any other state in the country.”

“What we are asking is, what are the steps to be taken by the Federal Government to secure the State and her people from the PDP/WIKE gang of killers? That Governor Wike has made Rivers State a killer field should give all Nigerians concern because we don’t know who will be the next victim as the Army, Police, Youth Corps members and hapless Rivers residents are not spared.”

The statement condemned the state governor, Nyesom Wike, for the bloodshed in the oil rich state.

“Sadly, the threats by Governor Wike to murder INEC officials and anybody that would stand in his way during the rerun elections were fully implemented as a Corps member, Samuel Okonta, INEC official, Army and Police personnel were all murdered in cold blood. This man has gone further to threaten the lives of President Buhari, the Army Chief of Staff and his predecessor governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi.”

“To cap it all, he sent his Chief of Staff, Samuel Wite, to assassinate the DG of NIMASA, Dr. Dakuku Peterside; Rivers APC State Chairman, Dr. Ikanya; and APC Deputy Governorship Candidate, Hon Asita O. Asita. The trio would have been dead if not for the grace of God and the gallantry of the DSS personnel that came to their rescue.”

“Do we continue to tolerate this man and applaud him for turning Rivers State into the hotbed of violence? Do we wait until the life of our President or Amaechi is touched before we do something to call this man to order?

“As Wike continue to play politics with the lives of Rivers State people, let us state that, those who travel on the lane of falsehood, subterfuge and deceit will definitely get to their destination which is destruction. The blood of all those killed for the so called PDP/Wike’s victory will one day speak.”

“In the same vein, we wish to further state that it is not acceptable if all those caught perpetuating evil and electoral malpractice, particularly Wike’s aides, are not duly prosecuted. If this is not done it may be difficult for us to participate in any election in Rivers State as we can’t continue to endanger the lives of our people because of election.”
