The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State has urged party faithful in the State to remain calm and not to be daunted by the
postponement of the 2019 General Elections by the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC).
Bro. Felix Obuah, Chairman PDP, Rivers State in a statement regretted that as shocking and embarrassing as the postponement
is, Rivers people should remain peaceful and wait to exercise their
franchise on the new dates of Saturday, February 23, 2019 and Saturday, March 9, 2019, respectively.
He stated that INEC has only succeeded in temporarily postponing the ‘doomsday’
for the APC, adding however that ‘APC’s doomsday’ cannot be cancelled.
“It is an incontrovertible fact that Rivers people and indeed all Nigerians are united in the quest to do away with President Buhari and
his APC. Postponement of the election or not, APC’s doomsday is
inevitable and must come”, he said.
The State PDP Chairman said Nigerians and particularly Rivers people are poised to send Buhari packing who has inflicted so much pain, sorrow, hunger and hardship culminating in untimely deaths.
Bro. Obuah said the PDP empathized with Rivers people who have expended so much resources and time to travel to their respective communities for the election, urging them to ‘take their anger, waste of resources and time’ to the election next Saturday; and ensure that Buhari is out.
“The anger and disappointment arising from this INEC-APC conspiracy
should sufficiently embolden Rivers people to troop out enmasse on the
rescheduled dates, so that
Buhari and APC would become a thing of the past”, Bro. Obuah declared.
