The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State has accused the State Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and the All Progressives Congress (APC) of inducing members of the National Youth Service Corps with the sum of N5,000.00 each to fabricate evidence and sign affidavits and other documents to the effect that the just concluded elections in the State were manipulated.

In a statement issued in Port Harcourt, Mr Emma Okah, Chairman, Media and Publicity Committee of the Rivers State PDP Campaign Organisation said the Youth Corps members were intimidated and taken to the Presidential Lodge in Government House, Port Harcourt where documents prepared by Gov Amaechi and the APC are given to them to sign.

According to Okah, the essence of the forged affidavits and documents signed by the Youth Corps members is to present them to the election Petition Tribunals as if they are credible evidence against the PDP.

“This is not only a criminal offence, it is an abuse of office on the part of the State governor and abuse of the Youth Corps members”, the statement added, noting that there is a limit to desperation on the part of the Governor and APC.
