The Rivers State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council has asked the Labour Party(LP) to tender evidence that the state governor, Nyesom Wike is working for the All Progressives Congress (APC) flag bearer, Bola Tinubu.
It was gathered that the Rivers PDP campaign council, in a statement on Sunday, said the allegation by LP that Wike was working for Tinubu on Saturday was baseless.
The PDP’s reaction is a sequel to an allegation levelled against the Rivers governor that he was working for the APC flag bearer.
The Labour Party on Saturday night took to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter to allege that Wike influenced the results of the presidential and National Assembly elections held in the state in favour of the APC in his village, Rumueme.

The post read, “This is from a returning officer with INEC. Rumueme 7A 034, Gov. Wike’s Village. Wike is at the rec centre to influence results in favour of APC. Obi won hands down in Rivers.”
However, in its reaction, the Director, of Publicity and Communications, Rivers State PDP Campaign Council, Chief Ogbonna Nwuke asked the Labour Party to show proof of its allegation.
Nwuke noted that the claim is baseless because Wike is neither INEC nor its official and can not stop them from doing their duties.
He said “This is all nonsense! Governor Nyesom Wike does not own INEC and urges the Labour Party to show proof of its allegations.
“Similarly, he cannot stop staff of the commission from carrying out their legitimate function. INEC on its part has not issued any statement suggesting that its staff are being harassed. So, where are these unverified allegations coming from?
“We are tired of listening to baseless claims that are not backed by verifiable facts. Those who are accusing Governor Nyesom Wike of attempting to suppress votes should show verifiable proof.
“They have neither provided pictorial or video evidence of the governor in any INEC facility nor shown audio proof of the governor engaging INEC officials to justify their spurious claims.
“Governor Wike knows the implication of doing such a thing. Let me say emphatically that Wike will never do such a thing. This is all trash.”
