"Face the reality and Stop Chasing shadows -Wike Tells APC


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has stated that the contrived audio clip being sponsored  by  the All Progressives Congress  ( APC) was produced to divert public attention  from the massive electoral fraud  by INEC, Police and Military killings  that marred the rerun elections.



He said that the audio clip  was fabricated using audio software, pointing  out  that  he never spoke with any electoral officer or anyone for that matter, either in person or over the phone seeking to influence the elections.

The governor  spoke on Thursday  night during an interactive  session with national correspondents in Port Harcourt.

He said: "When you look at certain  things, you just laugh. At no time did I speak to any electoral officer, let alone issue threats to  any electoral officer.

"There is nowhere I spoke to an electoral officer, threatening him or her as the case maybe.  I never spoke with anybody, I never threatened anybody.  Nobody can say that he sat with me or that I threatened him or how. Let any electoral officer come forward to say that Ì call him or her on phone.

"I never  spoke to anybody. It is totally  not correct.  The major issue is , did the police participate in rigging election? Did the Army participate  in rigging election? Did INEC  compromise? The police is denying somebody that was captured  on video. That is what they are trying  to  cover up".

The governor said: "Face the reality and stop chasing shadows. Let them show me. What is audio clip? What can't  this government do? I don't  have  an orderly, I don't have a Chief Security Officer, I don't  have a camp Commandant.  All were  taken away before the election. "

The governor  stated  that  rather than bring the SARS Commander, Mr Akin Fakorede  to  justice for his criminal activities  captured on video during the rerun elections, the Police Authorities  have arrested the policemen  who accompanied  him to stop Akin Fakorede from swapping Rivers East Senatorial District results sheet.

"They have now  arrested and  detained the policemen who accompanied  me to the collation centre  to stop that criminal.  Even Akin Fakorede who was  caught on video , has been released so that police can bungle it.

"What kind of country is this? And you are  telling me that they are circulating a contrived audio clip.  You caught a man on camera commiting crime, but you have swept  it under the carpet ", Governor Wike said.
