Rivers Re-Run:Wike Blasts Prof Sagay For Defending APC’s Rigging Strategy

By Ikenga Chronicles December 12, 2016

The governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike on Sunday evening took Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN) to the cleaners for ‘’irresponsibly ‘’ defending the All Progressives Congress’ “regime of impunity”.

Wike’s outburst came as a reply to a statement credited to Sagay during an interview he granted, where he allegedly claimed that the reason the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been unable to conduct a free and fair election in Rivers State, has been due to desperation of the Governor Wike-led politicians in the state.

Wike in a statement released through his Commissioner of Information and Communication, Austin Tam George described Sagay, the Chairman, Presidential Committee on Anti-Corruption as “a false intellectual with a broken moral compass and beneficiary of the current dictatorship of the All Progressives Congress-led government”.

Part of Wike’s statement read, “Prof. Sagay is an irresponsible defender of the APC’s regime of impunity. He is a happy beneficiary of the current dictatorship. No one in Nigeria takes Sagay with a pint of seriousness. He is one of the pseudo-intellectuals seduced by the honey of power.”

“Sagay’s incessant and unwarranted attacks on Governor Wike betray his frustration at the repeated failures of the APC government to overrun Rivers State, and loot the State’s treasury.”

“Governor Wike has consistently called for a free, fair and transparent electoral process in Rivers State. This is a sovereign and non-negotiable right of the Rivers people and we will defend this right with the last drop of our blood.”

“Our leaders will never be chosen for us by any one from Katsina, Abuja or Sambisa Forest. Sagay is a false intellectual with a broken moral compass”Wike said
