INEC wike

A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Chief Chukwuemeka Eze, has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to penalize Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State for allegedly turning project commissioning into an unlawful campaign.

In a statement issued to Akelicious on Sunday, Eze, a former national spokesman of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), said Wike has continued to carry on with political rallies round the state inviting national figures and using the avenue to speak ill of President Mohammadu Buhari and the ruling APC in disregard for the law regulating political and electoral activities.

He opined that individuals are free to exercise their right to political associations as expressly provided in the constitution, stressing that the right to hold political rallies when the ban on such activities is still very much in force, like Governor Wike, is disregard for the law regulating electoral concerns.
