The chairman of the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro Felix Obuah, says the All Progressives Congress (APC) is mischievously behind the military invasion of some parts of the State for the purpose of rigging the March 19, 2016 National and State Assembly re-run elections.
Alarmed by the continued provocative and inciting utterances of the APC leadership both at the national and state levels, the State PDP chairman in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, regretted that a party that is soliciting votes from the people will choose the unholy path of using the military to traumatise and kill the same people they want their votes during the election against all known democratic principles all over the world.
Bro Obuah noted that certain unguarded public statements credited to the Acting National Chairman of the APC, Chief Segun Oni, shows that the party has leadership problem, accounting why the APC has crashed to the lowest ebb of public discontent.
For Chief Oni who knows nothing about the Rivers situation to rely on the mischief of disgruntled members of his failed APC in the State, Magnus Abe, Dakuku Peterside etc to form his opinion, Bro Obuah pointed out, explains why the APC has continued to suffer dwindling fortunes under the Oni leadership who could not win election in his ward yet he went on to become the national chairman of the APC most undeservedly, perhaps, thinking he could find solace in Rivers State.
Bro Obuah stated that from available facts, the APC in its desperation to rig the forthcoming re-run elections has resorted to the use of all the security apparatus and other illegitimate means to intimidate the people in order to have a smooth ride during the election.
The State PDP boss said evidence abound that the recent military invasion of Ogoni and the present attack and occupation of Asari-Toru Local Government Area among other Ijaw speaking parts of the State were induced by the APC.
The pattern of the military actions and arrests which target PDP members and supporters, Prince Obuah said, further lend credence to the grand plot and connivance between the APC and the military to create panic and tension in these areas which are PDP’s strongholds so as to pave way for their evil plan to succeed but has failed.
The State PDP boss further alleged that shortly before the attack and invasion of Akuku-Toru Local Government Area Thursday morning, the trio of Magnus Abe, Dakuku Peterside and the State chairman of APC, Davies Ikanya had paid a secret visit to the minister of Interior in Abuja and were also sighted at the office of Chief of Army Staff with the APC Acting National chairman, Chief Oni.
Bro Obuah however expressed confidence in the more informed and reasonable Rivers people whom he said had long identified the real enemies of the state and those behind its under-development, saying that those undesirable elements want to take it by either hook or crook but have failed again.
He urged the Rivers people to continue to bear the persecutions and assault, as there is visible light at the end of the tunnel which will manifest in no distant time.
“These agents of darkness that call themselves APC know that their days are numbered and are leaving nothing to chance to either have their way or destroy the State but God is surely on our side and after the re-run elections which we are sure to win again to reassert your mandate, they would have been silenced forever,” the State PDP boss declared.
