Inspector General of Police, IGP Solomon Arase, has been tasked to implement, without delay, the judgment of the National Industrial Court reinstating the elected 22 Council Chairmen in Rivers State replaced with caretaker committees by Governor Nyesom Wike after the Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt declared their election null and void.

Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said in a statement issued this morning and signed by its Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya: “We appeal to IGP Solomon Arase to immediately take action to reinstate the illegally sacked LG Chairmen as ruled yesterday by the National Industrial Court sitting in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. We also urged IGP Arase to ensure the arrest and prosecution of the misguided elements Wike constituted as Care-Taker Committees to run the affairs of the Rivers State Councils and stop them from executing Wike’s plot to use them as conduit pipes to plunder and milk the treasury of Rivers state dry.”

Rivers APC in the statement issued in Port Harcourt noted that the judiciary has once again proven that it is the last hope of the common man by reinstating the sacked Council Chairmen. “We commend and congratulate the National Industrial Court for saving the judiciary from the shame that Justice Akanbi nearly brought upon it by his strange judgment that undermined the appeal before a Higher Court,” the party said.

It came down hard on Wike, saying: “We have severally stated that Wike has no place in a democratic dispensation as his records are an evil reminder of undemocratic bad blood in a civilised society.

“Former Governor Chibuike Ameachi’s slogan ‘Truth Will Prevail’ has come to play and very soon Wke will be caught up in his own traps. We thank God for this judgment. Wike can bribe one judge but he cannot bribe all judges. Truth has prevailed.

“With the sack of Wike’s illegal Council Chairmen, they have entered the Hall of Shame as the shortest serving Local Government Chairmen ever in the history of Nigeria as they were in office only for an aggregate period of 27 hours.”
