Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Amaechi, and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state are plotting to secure a court injunction in Awka, Anambra State to stop the swearing-in of Rivers State Governor-elect, Chief Nyesom Wike on May 29.
According to the party, in a statement made available to Global Patriot Newspapers, Monday, in Port Harcourt by Emma Okah, Chairman, Media and Publicity Committee of PDP Campaign Organisation, Rivers State, the plot is to ‘shop for and buy a judge outside Rivers State who will agree to do the dirty job since the judiciary in the State has been paralysed by the Amaechi administration.’
The PDP further accuses Gov Amaechi and the APC of ‘leaving no stone unturned in planning to carry out the Governor’s threat that he will not handover to Chief Wike.’
“However, in the face of this provocation, the PDP urges the people of Rivers State to remain calm as their Gov-Elect will be sworn in on May 29, 2015, as ordained by God like his colleagues in other States.
“The wish of the enemies of Rivers people to cause constitutional crisis and chaos is not the wish of God for Rivers State, noting that light will surely triumph over darkness.”
