2023: Politicians Exhibiting Disdain For Democratic Process, Says Wike

2023: Politicians Exhibiting Disdain For Democratic Process, Says Wike

Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike has expressed that politicians are acting contrary to election laws in their conduct.

He said this on Friday at a book launch in honour of Abdu Aboki, a retired justice of the supreme court, in Abuja.

Although the Rivers governor did not mention any name in particular, in recent weeks, he has been one of those asking Iyorchia Ayu, the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) — his party — to resign.

The call for Ayu to resign is said to be on the grounds that it is contrary to the party’s democratic process for the PDP presidential candidate and national chairman to be from the same region.

Speaking further on Friday, the Rivers governor also accused the federal government of neglecting the rule of law, adding that with the current challenges, the country is “headed for hard rocks”.

“The federal government continues to undermine the rule of law, while political parties and party leaders continue to exhibit utter arrogance and disdain for the electoral laws and the democratic process in their actions and conduct,” he said.

“With cries of injustice, discrimination and inequities everywhere and with the risen instability and deterioration of law and order, only the undiscerning would believe that Nigeria is not headed for the hard rocks,” he stated.
