The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) this afternoon expressed shock at the pronouncement of the Chairman of the Forum for Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Owelle Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, that APC is hell-bent on taking over Rivers and Akwa Ibom states.
The State Chairman of the PDP, Bro Felix Obuah through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, said Gov. Okorocha’s revelation is an eloquent corroboration of a similar recent pronouncement by the APC Chairman in the State, Davies Ikanya, that the APC-led Federal Government cannot afford to lose Rivers State.
Rivers PDP said that Gov. Okorocha blew the lead off the bottle while addressing newsmen after the meeting of APC Governors, revealing that the desperation of the party to take over the two South/South states is because they won the April 11, 2015 governorship elections in the two states but were robbed by the PDP.
The PDP State Chairman warned Okorocha “and his fellow plotters to steer clear of the state as the Rivers people are prepared to resist any unlawful means to snatch the mandate given to Gov. Wike.”
Bro. Obuah advised “the governor of crisis-ridden Imo State to engage his time to solve the myriad of problems he has foisted on the Imo people that have turned the historic Sam Mbakwe nation to a mere shadow of its glorious past.”
The Rivers PDP boss called on people all over the world to take note of those to hold responsible for any eventual mayhem that may befall the state and defenceless Rivers people.
Bro. Obuah noted that “notwithstanding the evil plot of trampling on the laws of the land and the people’s rights to usurp power in Rivers State, Okorocha has unwittingly admitted in the first instance that governorship election afterall, took place in the state, a sharp contrast to the claim of the APC in the state and before the state governorship election petitions tribunal.”
He also declared that “the Rivers people are more than ready to defend their mandate willingly and fairly given to Governor Nyesom Wike” but urged “the entire Nigerians to take note of the grand plot to cause crisis in the polity and demand to know whether such witch-hunt, forceful usurpation of power and executive lawlessness are what the CHANGE mantra of President Buhari is all about.”
“While we place our trust in God and believe that the truth will prevail in the face of the unprecedented plot against the will of the people, we make bold to say that the Rivers people are waiting and cannot be intimidated,” Bro. Obuah declared.
