The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday alleged that security operatives are under pressure to aide the scuttling of collation of results from the March 9 governorship election in Rivers State.
The party said it has uncovered that the All Progressives Congress (APC) was behind the plot to cause confusion in State in order for the collation of results to be scuttled.
The party in a statement by it’s national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said that “the APC plans to orchestrate violent disagreements and crisis at the stakeholders meeting scheduled by INEC ahead of the collation billed for April 2-5, 2019, so as to scuttle the exercise and stall the announcement of Governor Wike, who is the rightful winner of the election.
“In order to achieve this ignoble plot, the APC has conspired with certain compromised security agents to be bandying phantom security report in Rivers state, as a decoy for the execution of their ugly plan.”
The PDP added that it is not “unaware of pressure being put on certain security heads particularly, the Directorate of State Services (DSS), by the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, asking that collation of results be stopped.
“The APC should note that their plot has been exposed and that Rivers people will never allow them to have their way. Any person pushing such heinous machination in Rivers state will have him or herself to blame,” the statement noted.
The PDP further cautioned the APC and their “co-travellers to desist from any act aimed at scuttling the scheduled collation of results, which figures, confirming Governor Nyesom Wike’s victory, are known to all.”
