Rerun Polls: Plot By Wike, Rivers PDP To Sponsor Protest To Discredit Tai LGA Result Uncovered – Abe

magnus-abeThe Media Committee of Senator Magnus Abe Campaign Organisation on Monday raised the alarm over what it termed “another plot of the Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to discredit Tai Local Government Area result by organizing a protest march”.
Chairman of the Committee, Mr. Parry Saroh Benson, who raised the alarm in a statement issued in Port Harcourt, alleged that towards this end, the state governor, Chief Nyesom Wike had “set aside millions of naira from the tax payers money to fund the protest”.
According to Benson, Wike’s decision to fund the protest using Rivers’ funds was borne out of his obsession to stop Abe at all cost, notwithstanding how much of development fund goes into the drain for it.
The statement said: “Wike had before this time lavishly spent a lot of money to produce a documentary of falsehood and distortion, which he aired on Television stations to discredit the result but could not convince the right thinking citizens of Rivers State”.
While that failed, the media committee of the Abe Campaign Organization claimed that Governor Wike and his cohorts resorted to using the social media to make unguarded utterances against the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in order to deter it from releasing the results of Tai LGA.
The statement condemned in strong terms the maligning of the INEC National Commissioner, Hajia Amina Zakari and others, with the intention to intimidate her to suspend the announcement of the result perpetually.
It said no amount of arm twisting and wrenching by the Wike and his cohorts would stop the will of the people of Rivers South East senatorial district from sending Abe to the National Assembly to continue his good works on the implementation of UNEP report and other sundry interest of the people.
The statement said Wike and the PDP were desperate and treacherous, pointing out that while they told the world and obstructed the elections in the state that the result sheets were fake, they gladly accepted the results from the so-called fake sheets, where the results was in their favour.
It further stated that in his desperate manner, the governor had spoken from both sides of the mouth such that at one time, he accused President Muhammadu Buhari of unleashing the federal might on the state to rig the federal and state legislative rerun elections, at another time, he exonerated the president.
The statement described the governor as deceptive, inconsistent and incoherent in his utterances.
Benson said in spite employing violence against supporters of Mr. Abe, who was the senator representing Rivers South East in the 7th National Assembly, PDP had come to terms that the All Progressives Congress stalwart was on ground and was using every trick in its bag to scuttle his (Abe’s) chances of winning the election.
The statement added that Tai LGA election was conducted, collated and the results returned but the announcement of the result was suspended, which made the lifting imperative.
