The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on well meaning Nigerians especially the good people of the State to disregard the lies from candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 Governorship Election, Mr. Dakuku Adol Peterside, against the person of the Chairman of the PDP in the State, Bro. Felix Obuah.
PDP in a statement signed by the Chairman’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, said the party was shocked when Dakuku appeared on a radio programme in Port Harcourt on Saturday and alleged that Bro. Obuah attempted to inject his cousin with a lethal poison.
Recalling the issues that led to the very unfortunate vituperations by Dakuku, the Party wondered why the NIMASA boss would want to cover up his cousin, one Atonyesia Peterside who was not only caught printing fake INEC result sheets, but openly confessed that he printed the fake materials on the instruction of Mr. Emmanuel Chinda, a chieftain of the APC and former Commissioner under Rotimi Amaechi.
Noting that the allegation is spurious, absolutely false and misleading, the PDP described Dakuku’s conduct as a clear case of post election psychological trauma, having lost the 2015 Governorship Election to Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.
The PDP regretted that for a man who once nursed the ambition of governing a state, it clearly showed that Dakuku Peterside and some of his APC cohorts are instigating crisis and insecurity in Rivers State.
“Like the biblical story of the childless woman who wanted the child divided just to have it destroyed, Dakuku Peterside in this instance clearly wants Rivers State destroyed just because he lost his selfish ambition to become Governor” the PDP stated.
In view of the foregoing, the PDP also challenged Dakuku Peterside to undertake a facility tour of the State to keep him abreast with the projects executed by Governor Wike, which according to the PDP, the Rotimi Amaechi-led APC government which he served as Commissioner of Works, could not execute.
