12,404 sign petition to revoke Wike’s visa over alleged violence and involvement in electoral malpractice


No fewer than 12,404 persons have virtually signed a petition on for the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, and the entirety of the European and Asian continents to revoke the visas of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike over allegations he was involved in electoral malpractices.

Punch reports that the progenitor of the petition, Onyebuchi Ezeagabu, alleged that Governor Wike was “operating to destroy electoral process,” adding that the eligibility of the governor’s visa and that of his family should be revoked.

“The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has been operating to destroy electoral process in the state he governs. We demand his and his family’s visas eligibility revoked.”Ezeagabu wrote

A signee of the petition, Amechi Victor said, “He is against democracy in Nigeria. He just manipulated election results.”

Another person who supported the petition, Ugochi Agua-Onyekwelu, wrote, “This man has caused a lot of trouble and thuggery in the Nigerian political scene. He is always inciting people against the Igbos and has actually carried out the killing of thousands of Igbo men in his state at Obigbo, PH. He believes so much in violence and talks carelessly like a lout.”

There have been unconfirmed reports of alleged violence in some polling units in Rivers State during the Presidential and National Assembly elections on Saturday, February 25.
