Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has described as ‘shameless’ the admission by the All Progressives Congress (APC) chairman in the state, Mr. Davies Ikanya, of plots to ensure that there is no handover to the incoming government on May 29.
It would be recalled that the APC leadership in Rivers State had alleged planned assassination plots by the opposition PDP on its members as well as other claims orchestrated by the opposition party designed to disrupt the May 29 handover process.
Describing the statement credited to Ikanya as felony and actionable, chairman of the state PDP, Bro. Felix Obuah said, through a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Jerry Needam, that all what the APC wants in the state is anarchy ‘simply because it lost the governorship election.’
“All other imputations of assassination plots against its members are only but a ruse to cover its evil plans. As a law-abiding party, we’ll continue to align ourselves with the mandate of the people and remain committed to fashioning out ways of bettering their welfare as encapsulated in our campaign promises”.
No degree of provocation can put the wind off our sail,” Obuah said.
Continuing, the PDP chieftain in the state, therefore, warned Ikanya the ‘hereby warns Mr. Davies Ikanya to desist forthwith, from linking the party to assassination plots.’
“On the purported Local Government Council elections, Amaechi and the APC know full well that they are trading on illegality and this fact cannot be controverted.
“The PDP is not perturbed in any way by such fallacy and insistence on going on with the illegal local government elections, an avenue for making up for already misappropriated State funds. The allegation of purported planned assassination of APC members is absolutely false and just diversionary,” the PDP State Chairman, Obuah concluded.
