Written by Kayode Sanni on August 12, 2022
Rivers State Governor NYESOM WIKE has denied filing a suit against the People’s Democratic Party, its presidential candidate, ATIKU ABUBAKAR and Sokoto State Governor AMINU TAMBUWAL.
Speaking at the commissioning of House of Assembly Quarters in Port Harcourt, WIKE said he was focused on delivering the dividends of democracy to the people of Rivers State.
Legal documents filed at the Federal High Court in Abuja had surfaced late on Thursday showing WIKE as a plaintiff in a case against the PDP, ATIKU, TAMBUWAL and the Independent National Electoral Commission.
In the originating summons, WIKE and his co-applicant are asking the court to determine eight issues which includes whether the purported transfer of Tambuwal’s votes to ATIKU by the PDP was illegal and void.
But WIKE while denying the claim said that he would have gone to court within two weeks if he had wanted to go, noting that he has kept quiet on the matter and now focused on delivering results.
