Rivers factional PDP threatens Agric Commissioner with criminal charges


PORT HARCOURT— THE Felix Obuah faction of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State has said that it would institute criminal charges against the state Commissioner for Agriculture, Emmanuel Chinda, over alleged stashing of millions of naira in his residence.

The party in a statement by Jerry Needam, media aide to the Chairman of the faction, said it was interested in taking the legal action, following report that the commissioner’s security man stole N1 million from his house.

It said: “The PDP will press charges against Emma Chinda for keeping several millions of naira in his private home, an action that tempted the security man to tamper with the funds.

“If within seven days, Mr. Chinda does not provide authentic information, disclosing the source of such money, PDP will not hesitate to initiate criminal charges against him.”
