RIVERS Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has revealed alleged plans of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to pencil down the names of members and supporters of the PDP to cage during the re-run elections as part of plans to outsmart its opponents and coast home with undeserved victory. According to information from the state PDP chairman, Felix Obuah, the plot is to frame up unfounded charges against those considered as “stumbling blocks” in the wards the re-run elections will hold, with a view to getting them arrested and detained by security operatives before the election date and would not be released until after the elections. The state PDP leadership said it was in possession of the list of the names of all its members and leaders labelled and marked for the “hangman’s noose,” stressing that “the plot will be resisted with the last drop of their blood.
“Those already marked for arrest include the PDP leaders in all the wards and units, where the elections are holding,” he added. Information at the disposal of the PDP reveals that the APC leadership in the state, including Magnus Abe, Barry Mpigi and other APC leaders in the affected areas for the re-run elections compiled the list of PDP leaders sent to security agencies for arrest. “We are therefore calling on the security agencies and the Nigerian people, to take note of this evil plot which is certain to trigger off another round of avoidable crisis in the state due to the overzealousness of a few APC political desperados.” Warning against such plot, the state PDP boss advised all PDP members and supporters not to panic, but to firmly stand their ground, believing that as usual and God being on their side, APC would “remain a bad loser.
