The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, condemned the plot by the state chapter of the APC not to hand over power to the Governor-elect, Barrister Nyesom Wike. This was contained in a press statement signed by Jerry Needam, Special Adviser Media to the Rivers PDP state chairman, Brother Felix Obuah.
According to the statement, the PDP “says it has noted with great concern the shameless admission by Mr. Davies Ikanya, All Progressives Congress, APC, and Chairman in the State of plotting to stall the democratic process in the State by working towards ensuring that there is no handover to the incoming government in the State on May 29.”
The PDP described the statement credited to Mr. Ikanya as felony and actionable, and pointed that all the APC wants in the State is anarchy simply because it lost the governorship election. Obuah declared that “All other imputations of assassination plots against its members are only but a ruse to cover its evil plans.”
He stated that the PDP cannot be intimidated or cowed, by such unfounded and malicious allegations against it by Ikanya, and maintained that the people of Rivers State have spoken through their massive voting for the State governorelect, Chief Barr. Nyesom Wike and that is sacrosanct. Obuah stated “We only hope that the law enforcement agencies are taking note of Mr. Davies Ikanya’s conspiracy even though he has failed before they could start.
