The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has condemned what it terms “the jumping in and out of the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Abuja, by Mr. Magnus Abe, the All Progressives Congress, APC candidate for Rivers South-East Senatorial District in the forthcoming rescheduled re-run National Assembly election in the State.”
A statement from the office of the State chairman of the PDP, Bro Felix Obuah, demanded to know whether he (Abe) has relocated his campaign office to the INEC office, noting that his frequent visits to the electoral house is not only disturbing but also very suspicious.
According to Bro. Obuah, “it’s surprising and shameful that Mr. Abe can hardly comport himself and allow the electoral officers to do their job expeditiously,” adding that if he is not accusing the electoral officers of taking sides, he is alleging one fraud or another just to play the spoiler, knowing full well that he cannot win any election in the entire Rivers South East.
On the part of PDP, the State Chairman said all that matters to the party is for the electoral body to do the right thing and ensure a smooth conduct of the re-run elections, insisting that “the PDP will emerge victorious as usual.
“Notwithstanding, we are keeping tab on every move by desperadoes and will never allow nor accept any act not in consonance with the principle of one man, one vote, to determine the final and overall outcome of the re-run elections across the State,” Bro. Obuah warned.
It would be recalled that Magnus Abe was reportedly spotted in INEC office on Monday and Friday last week and again, on Monday and Tuesday this week.
