The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress [APC] claims credible information in its possession indicates that the PDP, in collusion with the Independent Electoral Commission [INEC], have plotted to ignore the genuine results of polls of most units in Rivers State and replacing same with written results by them during the forthcoming general elections.
The party claimed this in a press statement issued and signed by its State Publicity Secretary, Chris Finebone.
“It is important for the APC to continue to drum the warning that those behind this evil plot must realize the danger they are courting by attempting to scuttle the genuine democratic will of the people and the attendant consequences such an act could unleash on the polity.
“It is sad that, faced with imminent defeat in the forthcoming elections, the leadership of the PDP has been contriving all manner of actions to fracture the structure of the APC in our strongholds across the nation with a view to stealing APC victory.
“Despite the deployment of massive stolen funds in core APC states such as Kano, Lagos and others, the PDP and the Presidency have continued to create dangerous unmentionable schemes that are capable of plunging the nation into the abyss of anarchy all to ensure that General Muhammadu Buhari does not assume his victory at the forthcoming election.
“Faced with an INEC that is resolute in stamping out rigging through the use of the Card Reader, the PDP has resorted to several other plots to scuttle the genuine wishes of the people across the country. Of particular concern to the APC is the plan to ignore the genuine results of the elections in states such as Bayelsa and Rivers. For example, genuine results in Bayelsa State will be ignored and replaced with results written in a top politician’s house in Yenagoa.
“Other APC strongholds such as the North-East of Nigeria have been penciled down for massive rigging with the assistance of the military.
“The APC calls on the international and local observers, the international community and heads of security agencies to pay particular attention to this unfolding development, intervene and avert anarchy in Rivers State and across the country”.
