2023: APC chieftain blasts Wike for attacking Buhari over appointment of UniPort VC
Eze Chukwuemeka Eze has tackled Governor Nyesom Wike for accusing President Muhammadu Buhari of appointing an administrator for the University of Port Harcourt to assist the All Progressives Congress APC, rig election in 2023.
Prof. George will Owunari was recently appointed by the Ministry of Education because of the new Vice-Chancellor of the University of Port Harcourt.
Governor Wike had accused the Buhari-led federal of appointing Vice-Chancellors, assisting the APC in rigging the 2023 general elections in Rivers State.
The Governor of Rivers State had issued a threat to any official of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, who would make themselves available as willing tools within the hands of political desperados to rig elections during a good in Port Harcourt.
Ex-PDP National spokesman Chukwuemeka Eze blasts Wike over Rivers LG poll.
He had said, “Let me warn, not one person will dare to rig Election in Rivers state, not one person will dare it, anybody who does that, you recognize it’s a coup and you recognize the punishment for that..”
Wike went further to state that only compromised academics, willing to submit names of politically exposed lecturers as returning officers to rig elections for the ruling party, are being appointed as Vice Chancellors of Federal universities while vowing that those contemplating to rig elections within the State would be treated as coup plotters.
Eze, in his reaction, said the Governor’s comment was a tragic irony, as his catholic records of election thievery remain public and apparent to all or any.
He said Wike’s statement had stemmed from the brooding embitterment occasioned by the failure of his preferred candidate for the office of the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Port Harcourt.
Eze accused Wike of playing a satanic role during the 2019 elections by weighing significant influence being Minister of Education for State. He may have allegedly wont to influence the appointment of Vice-Chancellors who played no mean roles in his becoming Governor of Rivers State.
Eze said the widely published report of the police recovering N114 million from the N360 million employed by the Rivers Governor to bribe INEC officials to announce cooked to his favour adds to his credence.
Eze said the police report should have compelled Wike and the government to resign to avoid further engagements during a fanfare of squandermania and allow unfettered assessment into the summarily embarrassing, grossly messy and high-profile indictment against the Governor.
