The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has vowed to resist the plot by certain unpatriotic and disgruntled individuals, allegedly working for the All Progressives Congress (APC), to orchestrate a security situation and push for imposition of a state of emergency in Rivers State.
Bittertruth Media recalls that Gov.Wike through a State by his Information Commissioner, Paulinus Nsirim, had on Wednesday claimed to have uncovered a plot to declare state of emergency in Rivers State.
In its reaction, the PDP described those behind the Emergency Rule plot as “Power Mongers at the federal level”, who now seek to manipulate situations with the COVID-19 pandemic to cause confusion and push their plot to take over the governance of the state through the back door.
“Our party therefore warns those seeking to cause confusion and disaffection to steer clear of Rivers state as they will be firmly resisted.
More so, our nation is a democracy and as such it is guided by rules”, the PDP said.
The party further called on ” the people of Rivers state to remain calm, alert and united in resisting all attempts by such agents of violence who are seeking to cause trouble in the state.
The party also called on security agencies to take note of the development and closely watch the APC and particularly its power-hungry leaders in the state and stop them from their unpatriotic plots.”
