Protest March Against Release of Tai LGA Result of Legislative Re-Run Election Uncovered

The Media Committee of Senator Magnus Abe Campaign Organization has uncovered 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.

In a press Statement issued in Port Harcourt and signed by Mr. Parry Saroh Benson, chairman of the committee, stated that Governor Nyesome Wike had set aside millions of naira from the tax payers money to fund the protest, pointing out that Wike was so obsessed with stop-Abe-at-all-cost project that he would not mind 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.

It stated that while that failed, Wike and his cohorts resorted to using the social media to make unguarded utterances against INEC in order to deter it from releasing the Tai LGA result.

The statement condemned in strong terms the maligning of the INEC Staff 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 them would stop the will of Rivers South East people from sending Abe to the Senate 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 favoured them.

It further stated that the governor's desperation had made him to double speak such that at one time, he would say President Muhammadu Buhari had unleashed the federal might on the state to rig the elections, at another time, he would exonerate Buhari.

The statement described the governor as deceptive, inconsistent and incoherent in his utterances.

It said in spite employing violence against Abe supporters, PDP had come to terms that he (Abe) was on ground and was using every trick in its bag to scuttle 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.
