PDP initiates moves to upturn APC’s win in Rivers Rerun

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has said she will challenge the emergence of APC’s Magnus Abe in the rerun elections in Rivers South-East Senatorial District.

PDP’s State chairman, Felix Obuah, said APC’s win was a grave error on the part of INEC.

He said as available records showed that security agencies massively rigged the election in favor of Mr. Abe.

He vowed that the Party would not rest until Abe’s victory is upturned.

The Rivers State chapter of APC lashed back at PDP urging them to head to court.

APC’s spokesman, Chris Finebone, said it was not necessary making noise about heading to court.

Finebone said going to tribunal is a normal thing after every election.

He said electoral court cases is not an issue to argue about.

He, however, hoped that Abe’s election would be upheld.

The PDP Chairman expressed optimism that the Party would have the last laugh at the tribunal.

He said Abe was smuggled into the Senate with the connivance of INEC, SARS, Army and the Police.

He assured that Abe’s tenure in the Senate would be short-lived.

He called on Mr. Olaka Nwogu, who contested the election with Abe to remain calm and hopeful.

The PDP further alleged that “Magnus Abe has in the past weeks been concocting results in his private residence.

Obuah also facilitated with the Ogoni people on the 2017 Great Ogoni Day celebration.

He wished them a very successful Ogoni Day Celebration.
