The Director-General of Rivers State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council, Bro Felix Obuah has dismissed as hollow and baseless the allegation by Atiku’s supporters in the state against Governor Nyesom Wike as the mastermind of the arrest of some members of the group by the police.
Bro. Obuah who picked holes in the allegation said the statement contradicted itself with the differing positions of the spokesman for the group, Victor Moses and the spokesman of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council in the State, Leloonu Nwibubasa who denied knowledge of the incident to a news outlet in Port Harcourt.
This shows, according to the PDP 2023 Election Campaign Council that the reason for the police arrest if there was any arrest at all, could be personal and had nothing to do with politics let alone involving the Executive Governor of the State who could not descend so low to get involved in infantile campaign groups.
Bro. Obuah, the immediate State PDP Chairman and frontline politician in Rivers State described as unfortunate the evolving culture of drawing attention to unfounded issues and inconsequential persons by mentioning the name, and pointing accusing fingers at the person of the Governor simply to make news.
He however, expressed joy that the security operatives and law enforcement agencies are not lost to this misnomer and will always bring their professional expertise to bear in handling such matters.
Bro. Obuah also warned those in this habit of fomenting trouble in the state for whatever motives to note that misinformation and disinformation remain a serious offence and breach of the Nigerian law.
The PDP Campaign Council DG, appealed to the supporters of the Rivers PDP governorship candidate, Sir Siminalayi Fubara and all the other PDP candidates in the state to disregard such insinuations meant to distract their attention and remain vigilant and steadfast in their support for Governor Nyesom Wike and the State PDP-led government.
