Rivers, Akwa Ibom Rulings: PDP Cautions APC

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has cautioned the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration against precipitating a political crisis that may threaten the country’s democracy through undue interference in the adjudication of election cases.

The PDP also urged all its members, supporters and lovers of democracy across the country to rise up and use all lawful means to resist anti-democratic forces now using the judiciary and security agencies in their desperate scheme to subvert the will of the people and destroy the nation’s democracy.

It said though it seeks peace, it was not ready to accept the peace of a graveyard, neither was it willing to surrender the mandate freely given to it by the people in any part of the country, particularly in Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Abia, Taraba and other states where it won in the last general election.

“Let it be known, and clearly too, that no matter the strong-arming, threats and manipulations by the APC government, the PDP is not willing to, and will never surrender the mandate freely given to us by the people in states where we won in the last general election, neither are the people of those states willing to allow sectional invaders to exert influence on those to be in charge of their affairs,” the party said in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, yesterday.
