A former Chief Whip of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Evans Bipi, has alleged that the outcome of the 2023 general election was manipulated under the watch of the then-governor of the state, Nyesom Wike.

Bipi made the allegation in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, while speaking at a solidarity rally for the state governor organized by women groups across the 23 local government areas.

He specifically alleged that the Labour Party, LP, “won all their elections” in the stage.

A trending video clip from the event captured the former Chief Whip reacting to a recent outburst by Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

DAILY POST recalls that Wike, who has been at loggerheads with his immediate successor, Governor Siminalayi Fubara, recently claimed that nobody would challenge him and his allies in the next general election.

The former governor was apparently assuring his supporters that Fubara would be evicted from the Government House in the next governorship election.

He further alleged that Wike and his allies did not win any seat in the 2023 elections.

He said, “It is written in Exodus 14:13 that the Egyptians you see today, you shall see them no more. Last weekend, they went to a thanksgiving party and bragged that they wished tomorrow was 2027.

“With you, can they win 2027? They are bragging about 2027 as if they won in 2023. The Labour Party won all their elections. We know how we did it. Chijioke told us that he was one of those who assisted them.

“We also wish that tomorrow is 2027 so that they can see our performance.”
