Those left in APC are afraid of EFCC —Wike

The Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike has said those left in the All Progressives Congress, APC, are afraid of harrassment from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

The governor stated this in Port Harcourt on Wednesday, while celebrating the defection of the Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal from the APC to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

According to Wike, Rivers State is one of those facing the worst form of harassment from All Progressives Congress, APC-led Federal Government, vowing that he would not be deterred by intimidation from the Federal Government.

“I am ready to be part of history, to be part of positive change in the country in 2019. Some governors who cannot win elections, based on their performance, are merely hanging on because they believe if Buhari runs, they will win.

“Those left in APC are afraid of intimidation by the EFCC. Some people are lilly-livered, so they cannot come out,” Wike said, adding that the bandwagon high profile defections from APC to PDP will continue.

“Democracy is under threat in Nigeria. Nobody obeys court judgments. Nobody obeys the rule of law. If you say anything, they come after you. That is not democracy,” he said.
