The Rivers state governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the 2015 general elections, Dr DAKUKU PETERSIDE has laughed off the constitution of a Judicial Commission of Inquiry to investigate alleged violence that took place during the December 10, 2016 rerun election by Governor NYESOM WIKE.
Dr. PETERSIDE described the action of WIKE as the proverbial witch who cried a previous night and the child dies the following day, adding that the governor has no shame as he continues to ridicule the office he occupies.
Dr. PETERSIDE said, “How can a responsible Governor be urging Rivers people to be lawless, how can such a governor call Rivers people not to obey police investigation and yet expects the same people to obey his own kangaroo judicial commission”, end of quote.
Dr. DAKUKU wondered what Governor WIKE, who accused the Police of seeking to achieve a predetermined goal in its investigation to nail PDP members, is seeking to achieve with his own panel of inquiry, to exonerate PDP members and pronounce APC members guilty?
Dr PETERSIDE, who is also the Director General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA), said Governor WIKE remains an accused in the matter and could therefore not set up an investigative panel, else it is dead on arrival.
