Joe Igbokwe has publicly apologized to Nigerian Judiciary system and Rivers State government over his facebook comment on Gov Nyesom Wike.
below is his statement. :
” Please let it be known and it is hereby made known that I have withdrawn the post I did few days ago on Facebook suggesting that The Apex Court compromised on matters concerning 2015 Rivers State Governorship elections. It was not a calculated attempt to cast aspersions, demean and disparage the entire Bar and the Bench which I hold to the highest esteem. I am too small and too insignificant to do this. It was a mistake and I take responsibility for my action. It was a personal opinion. This is to tender an unconditional and unreserved apology to all those fell offended by my post and a promise to avoid such drivel in future. To err is human!
The Rivers state government accuses APC chieftain, Joe Igbokwe, of disgracing the Supreme Court and painting the nation’s judiciary black
The Rivers state government has given a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Joe Igbokwe, a 7-day ultimatum to name the Supreme Court justices he claimed Governor Nyesom Wike bribed.
The Rivers state commissioner for information and communications, Emma Okah, issued the ultimatum in reaction to Facebook post on Monday, July 16, 2018, where Igbokwe, the spokesperson for the Lagos APC, said Governor Wike will never again have the opportunity to buy justice from the Supreme Court where President Muhammadu Buhari is the president.
Joe Igbokwe post read: “Wike will not have the audacity and the temerity to kill again in Rivers State and run to Supreme Court to buy justice. it will never happen again in Nigeria where President Muhammadu Buhari is the president.”
Angered by the Facebook post, the Rivers state government accused the APC chieftain of disgracing the Supreme Court and painting the nation’s judiciary black in a bid to bring down a sitting governor.
Spokesperson for the government, Emma Okah, said: “It takes a lunatic or one whose vision of reality is distorted to disgrace the Supreme Court and paint the nation’s judiciary black in a bid to bring down a sitting governor whose only offence is that he has asked that things be done right in Nigeria.
“Certainly Igbokwe belongs to the axis of evil that sees nothing wrong in the killing of fellow Nigerians, especially his kinsmen and that is why he carelessly brands a governor as a killer even without any iota of evidence.”
Okah described the comments of the APC chieftain as not only ungodly.
