Wike Accuses APC-led Federal Govt Of Planning To Rig 2023 Elections

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has accused the All Progressives Congress APC led Federal Government of attempting to rig the 2023 general elections.

Wike said the Federal Government is doing so by appointing presidential aide Lauretta Onochie as a National Commissioner in the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

The Governor made the accusation in Port Harcourt during the presentation of his scorecard as Governor for six years, saying that despite Nigerians’ opposition to Onochie’s nomination, the National Assembly appears determined to confirm her nomination.

He claims the move is part of the APC’s grand plan to rig the 2023 elections.

Governor Wike, therefore, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw Onochie’s nomination as INEC commissioner immediately in order to avoid further damage to the commission’s credibility.

“Despite the flood of protests against her nominations and the general lack of trust in her capacity to remain impartial, it seems the APC-led Senate is determined to confirm her appointment as part of their grand plot to rig the 2023 general elections well ahead of time, knowing that Nigerians will overwhelmingly reject them in a free fair and transparent contest.”
