The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged plots by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to cause confusion in Rivers State, with the view to scuttling the scheduled collation of the remaining results of the March 9 governorship election in the state.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had suspended the collation of election results in the state, owing to violence and clear threat to peace that characterised the election. The commission has fixed resumption of collation for April 2-5.
However, in a statement Friday by the spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, the main opposition party accused the APC of plots to orchestrate violent disagreements and crisis at the stakeholders meeting scheduled by INEC ahead of the collation.
According to the PDP, the part of the alleged plot was to scuttle the exercise and stall the announcement of its candidate, incumbent Governor Nyesom Wike, who the PDP said, is the rightful winner of the election.
The statement said, “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 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 PDP therefore cautions 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”.
