The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has just uncovered a grave plot by the chieftains of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and two other political parties to deceive and tele-guide the INEC-fact finding committee in the State with concocted and false election results supposedly obtained in the 23 local government areas of the State.
The PDP in a statement said the APC leaders in the State have also planned to coerce the INEC officials that supervised the Governorship and State Assembly elections Saturday, March 9, to admit the cooked up results as the authentic results.
The fake results the statement added, are to be presented to the fact-finding committee through FSARS Commander in the State, Mr. Akin Fakorede who right from the outset spearheaded the onslaught in Rivers State for the APC chieftains in the State.
The statement warned of the impending danger if the perpetrators of these nefarious acts do not refrain from their evil plot which is capable of causing crisis in the State as the PDP and indeed the masses of Rivers people will not accept any results other than the one that emanated from the March 9 Governorship and State Assembly elections undistorted.
The statement however thanked Gov. Nyesom Wike for the peaceful disposition displayed to ensure that the State remains calm and peaceful.
We urge and believe the INEC and the fact-finding committee will remain firm on what is right and save Rivers State from the turmoil being orchestrated by one man’s inordinate ambition to continue to rule the State through proxy.
The federal government, all well meaning Nigerians, the media, civil society organizations and the international community should please take note, and warn those unrepentant anti-democratic elements fomenting trouble in the State, and hold them responsible for any breach of the law and order their plot to concoct the Governorship election results in the State may cause,” the statement stressed.
