The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has expressed shock over alleged plans by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to eliminate its chairman, Bro Felix Obuah.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, to Bro Obuah on Wednesday.
The statement which described the alleged plot as ‘callous’ and ‘barbaric’, said the APC by this strange move has added a new dangerous dimension to party politics in the State.
The party warned that “violence in whatever form remains an ill-wind that blows no one any good and must be discarded for the sake of greater number of innocent Rivers people and other Nigerians and nationals living in the State.”
According to them, politics and by extension, democracy will cease to be the best form of government if it’s not devoid of bitterness and blood-letting.
“It’s therefore on this note, that the Nigerian government and indeed, all well meaning Nigerians should not turn their eyes the other way over the shocking plot by the APC chieftains in Rivers State to incite crisis in some parts of the State as the re-run State and National Assembly elections approach, and using same as a smoke-screen to pick on those designated for elimination including our State chairman, Felix Obuah”, the party warned.
The PDP however commended the boldness of the Omoku Development Initiative for uncovering and raising alarm over the plot by the APC in the State, stressing that any attempt to make real this plot will not augur well for the State.
“Everybody while being watchful and alert to such plots by the APC should freely go about their businesses without any fear of unnecessary attack because this State belongs to all of us” the PDP advised.
