The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami (SAN) and Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, were engaging in acts capable of causing constitutional crisis in Rivers state.

The party alleged that Malami, Amaechi and other APC bigwigs were prevailing on the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Tanko Mohammed to reverse the judgement which stopped the APC from fielding candidates for the 2019 general elections.

Addressing a press conference on Sunday in Abuja, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan said it was strange that leaders of the APC at the federal level were allegedly making such move at a time the elections were already concluded.

“The PDP has been informed of how these desperate APC figures and their agents have been mounting pressure on the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Tanko Mohammed, to reverse the February 12, 2019 final judgement of the Supreme Court, which upheld the verdict of the trial court that lawfully excluded the APC from participating in the National Assembly, Governorship and State Assembly Elections in Rivers state, having nullified the party’s flawed primaries in the state.

“Rotimi Amaechi goes about boasting that the apex court in the land, the Supreme Court, will reverse itself and declare for fresh conduct of all the elections in Rivers state. This is completely reprehensible and unthinkable in our democratic process.

“If this is allowed to occur, it will also amount to the highest travesty of justice, apart from being a direct abuse of court process. The Supreme Court is the highest temple of justice in our country and as such must protect itself from all forms of manipulative tendencies of the APC.

“The PDP therefore urges the Acting CJN not to allow his office to be used by desperate power mongers in the APC to cause anarchy and perpetrate more violence in Rivers state.

“The people of Rivers state have experienced so much crisis, bloodletting, harassment and intimidations from the APC in its desperation to forcefully take over the state.

“The people have spoken loudly on their choice of PDP and all its candidates. They should be allowed to move ahead with their leaders and no institution of government should lend itself as an instrument in the hands of oppressive forces seeking to undermine our democracy and subjugate our citizenry,” the PDP said.
