The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it notes, with feelings of vindication, the reaction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) through its Publicity Secretary, Chris Fynebone, purporting that the PDP is ‘jittery’, and alluding that the expected outcome of the Police Panel investigation into the December 10, 2016, Re-run Election killings in the state will indict Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike and state PDP Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah.

The party described the APC response as “clearly, a justification of its (the PDP) consistent position on an existing well lubricated alliance between the APC and the Police, as well as proof of a determined effort by both partners to by all means bring down the rising profile of Governor Wike, the PDP Chairman, Bro.  Felix Obuah, and other leaders of the party in the state, having lost woefully in their several attempts and quest to take over government in the state through other undemocratic means.

The PDP explained that “there are facts that can never be denied; this partnership between the APC leaders and the Police top authorities is with the sole aim of attempting to pull down Rivers State. What would be their benefit, rather than the continued failure, disappointment and shame that they would get at the end of the day.”

The PDP expressed optimism that “all efforts made to implicate Governor Wike and Obuah, by the APC, the Police or the DSS will fail, as the Party is in custody of sterling evidences, attesting to the validity of its claim of obvious conspiracy and orchestrated attempt to rope the PDP leaders into actions and killings that APC leaders themselves are culpable of.”

The PDP said it believes that “if genuine and objective investigations were to be carried out by independent bodies, not the Nigerian Police that are parties and have demonstrated high level compromise and proof of being perpetrators in the violence, killings and rigging that took place during the said elections in the state, in slick alliance with their paymasters (the APC), the world would have known the real truth of the matter.”

The PDP called on the people “to discountenance all fabricated and malicious statements and actions from both the APC and the Police on this matter,” but reiterated its position to stand by the truth and to ensure that justice prevails on the killing and injustice meted on Rivers people during the elections.
