Rivers PDP says the Rivers state governor Chibuike Amaechi and the All Progressives Congress are plotting to secure a court injunction in Awka, Anambra state to stop the swearing-in of Rivers state governor-elect, Nyesom Wike on May 29, 2015.
This revelation was contained in a statement issued today in Port Harcourt by Emma Okah, Chairman, Media and Publicity Committee of PDP Campaign Organisation, Rivers State.
According to Okah, the plot is to shop for and buy a judge outside Rivers state who will agree to do the dirty job since the judiciary in the state has been paralysed by the Amaechi administration.
The PDP further accuses Amaechi and the APC of leaving no stone unturned in planning to carry out the Governor’s threat that he will not handover to Wike.
“However, in the face of this provocation, the PDP urges the people of Rivers State to remain calm as their Gov-Elect will be sworn in on May 29, 2015, as ordained by God like his colleagues in other states.”
“The wish of the enemies of Rivers people to cause constitutional crisis and chaos is not the wish of God for Rivers State, noting that light will surely triumph over darkness,” the statement read.
As at the time of filing this report, PM News could not get the reaction of David Iyofor, Chief Press Secretary to Amaechi on the allegation.
