By John Imade (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The delay in the amendment of the Electoral Act has attracted the ire of the fiery Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, who on Wednesday, thundered that no reasonable Nigerian citizen would want the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) back in power in 2023.
According to Wike Nigerians were disappointed in the APC, which he accused of frustrating moves to amend the Electoral Act.
“Amending the Electoral Act would be a giant leap forward for the country as it would lead to free, fair, and credible elections,” Wike tweeted on his official handle, doubling down on his claim that the ruling APC is afraid of losing the presidential seat.
“Unfortunately, we are again seeing tricks and delays because this government doesn’t want it amended so they can manipulate the 2023 elections. They know people have lost confidence in the APC Government and no reasonable Nigerian would want them back.”
