Delta State chapter of Labour
Party has warned the National
Publicity of the People’s
Democratic Party, PDP, Olisah
Metuh to desist from making
careless statement on the April
11 governorship and House of
Assembly elections in the state.
Metuh had alleged that
agents of the opposition parties
were planning to compromise
stakeholders in INEC and security
agencies to doctor electoral
materials against the PDP at the
tribunals in order to upturn the
landslide victory of the party in
Delta, Akwa-Ibom and Rivers
But the Chairman of Labour
Party in Delta State, Chief Tony
Ezeagwu yesterday in Asaba
insisted that PDP did not win the
election in the state, and described
Metuh’s comments as “careless,
wild and provocative”, warning
him “to desist forthwith” from
making such statements.
According to Ezeagwu,
“Metuh’s claim that PDP won the
elections in Delta is a lie. In the
contrary, PDP violently subverted
the will of our people, the

be wrongfully declared the winner
of the elections because a very
biased, corrupt, and unworthy
INEC in Delta State made itself a
willing partner.”
He said the Labour Party has
already perfected plans to make
representations to the Presidentelect,
General Muhammadu
Buhari on the fraud, illegality and
irregularity allegedly perpetuated
by the PDP in collusion with INEC
and security agencies.
He further alleged that the card
reader innovation was bypassed
in most of the polling units during
the elections, adding that the
Labour Party and its governorship
candidate, Chief Great Ogboru
were already at the tribunal
challenging the outcome of the
