The Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the Federal Government and the Minister of Transport Rotimi Amaechi and the All Progressives Congress (APC) of plotting to assassinate Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
The party explained that the withdrawal of the security detail to the governor on Monday was to expose him to danger of assassination and possibly intimidate him to succumb to “their rigging plans” over the national and state assembly re-run elections slated for December 10, in the state.
The Spokesman of the Caretaker Committee, Prince Dayo Adeyeye in a statement on Tuesday, described the act as despicable, a complete affront and declaration of war on Rivers people using the apparatus of state.
PDP said in the statement, “This latest development has confirmed that the former Governor of Rivers State and now Minister of Transport, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi in collaboration with his party’s led federal government and its security agencies has finalized plans to assassinate the Governor of Rivers State.
“This is not acceptable and if anything happens to the Governor of Rivers State, Chief Nyesom Wike, his family or any of our party members or supporters in Rivers State, Rivers people and indeed, all Nigerians should hold Chibuike Amaechi and his party leaders responsible.
“It is common knowledge that since the inception of this government, the APC leaders have approached elections in the country with different rigging methods.
“Nigerians will recall that Governor Wike alerted on the plots of enemies led by government at the center to murder him. A serious indication was the Commissioner of Police, Rivers State, Mr. Folusho Adebanjo, working on the order of desperate APC led federal government withdrew more than 70 percent of security personnel detailed to the Rivers State Government House, Port Harcourt.”
