Rivers guber: PDP raises fresh alarm ahead of collation of results

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Sunday, accused the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami SAN, of plotting to scuttle the collation of the results of Rivers State governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

It also cautioned Malami to restrain himself from being used to commit what it termed “unconstitutional acts” in the collation of results already scheduled to begin in the state on Tuesday.

PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan disclosed this in a statement wherein he also alerted Nigerians that the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has been boastfully claiming that the AGF was working on a script whereupon he will write to the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, to direct him to stop the collation of results.

Ologbondiyan added, “Our party urges the AGF to note that there is no provision of the 1999 Constitution (as Amended) or any part of the Electoral Act 2010 (as
Amended) that, in anyway, empowers the AGF to interfere or stop the process of election, until declaration of result is made.

“It is imperative for the AGF to note that Rotimi Amaechi, in his desperation, will want to rope him in and use him to cause a constitutional crisis that has the capacity to derail our democracy.”
