It has come to our notice that INTELS camp in Port Harcourt is being used by the Hon. Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi, the state Party Chairman of the APC, Chief Ibiamu Ikanya and their acolytes as a safe haven where all manner of electoral fraud is being perpetrated to subvert the will of members of APC in Rivers State in the ward congresses scheduled to hold tomorrow, Saturday the 5th of May, 2018.
All the electoral materials meant for the conduct of the congresses have been hijacked on the orders of the Minister of Transportation to the INTELS facility where nominations forms are being issued and lists of ward executives for an exercise yet to take place being compiled against the rules and guidelines of the party governing the conduct of the congresses.
In order to carry out this illegality and impunity, the party secretariat where all activities preceding the congresses ought to take place has been abandoned and deserted.
We therefore want to strongly appeal to the management of INTELS Camp and other hotels in Port Harcourt not to allow their business premises to be used to perpetrate fraud against the laws of the APC and Nigeria.
We also want to call on President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari and the National leadership of the All Progressives Congress to call the Minister of Transportation to order to desist from carrying out activities designed to subvert the will of party faithful in Rivers State as such activity is capable of painting our party in bad light thereby destroying the faith of the electorate in Rivers State that APC is capable of doing things right in accordance with its own rules.
Chief Peter Odike
Deputy State Chairman, APC, Rivers State
