The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) uncovers fresh plots by the All
Progressives Congress (APC) to disrupt the on-going final collation of
the results of the Rivers State Governorship election, seeing that
Governor Nyesom Wike has already won.
Our party has been informed that the APC has been mounting pressure on
security agencies to withdraw their personnel from the collation center
and open the way for the invasion of armed hoodlums, sponsored by the
APC, to invade the center and disrupt the exercise.
The PDP has full information of how the APC plots to scuttle the
collation, render the process inconclusive and trigger a constitution
crisis in the state.
The party however cautions that the public is already aware of the
result of the election, that Governor Wike is the clear winner and that
the people of Rivers state are now, more than ever before, all out to
ensure that the process is concluded without further delay.
The PDP therefore charges the Chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, to
immediately direct adequate security at the collation center and ensure
that the process is concluded and Governor Wike declared winner
according to the wishes of majority of the people of Rivers State.
