Rivers PDP alleges moves by APC for postponement of re-scheduled election

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State has alleged that there were clandestine moves by the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state for another postponement of the expected re-scheduled Rivers re-run legislative election fixed for this month.

The state PDP said it had been alerted by some credible information available to it, confirming the grave plan by the leadership of the APC, in conjunction with some very senior staff and officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, aimed at effecting another shift in the conduct of the election, alleging insecurity in the state and logistic problems on the side of the commission as reasons for the postponement.

Rivers PDP state Chairman, Mr Felix Obuah, who expressed disappointment over such alleged action by the APC, in a statement in Port Harcourt, yesterday, however, said the moves did not come to them as a shocker, as right from the onset the APC had never shown any readiness to genuinely participate in a free, fair and non-violently conducted elections in the state.
