Rivers Rerun: FG should punish Wike for shunnig investigation – APC
TVC E. The All Progressives Congress, APC, has called on the Federal Government to sanction the state Governor, Nyesom Wike, over his refusal to appear before the Police panel set up to probe the violence that marred the December 10 rerun elections in the state.
Recall that the Nigerian Police Force had set up an investigative panel to look into the outbreak of violence in the just concluded rerun election.
However, wike in his reaction, said his administration will not be part of the probe.
Wike, further constituted a similar panel to probe the violence that occurred during the poll.
However, the APC Chairman in the State, Dave Ikanya, has described Wike’s action as an affront on the Federal Government which should not be overlooked.
According to Ikanya, “This is a direct affront on federal powers and should be swiftly met with appropriate response by those whose authority he is challenging so as not to embolden others to follow his dangerous example.
“Wike has clearly crossed the line and should be put in his proper place by the Federal Government whose powers he is brazenly challenging.
“Wike’s sole purpose in setting up the kangaroo commission is to ridicule APC leaders and make nonsense of the efforts by the Police to probe and stop further killings in Rivers State.”
