Rivers: Odili, Orage Surrender Houses To Election Riggers, Dakuku Peterside Alleges
BEVERLY HILLS, April 11, (THEWILL) – The Campaign organisation of Dakuku Peterside, the River State Governorship Candidate, The Greater Together Campaign Organisation, Saturday condemned what it described as the unashamed re-writing of results of the Governorship/House of Assembly elections in River State.
Alleging that the exercise went on simultaneously at the Port Harcourt private residences of Dr. Peter Odili, a former Governor of Rivers State, and Mr. Tom Orage , the Campaign Organisation in a statement signed by its Communications Director, Ibim Seminitari, also alleged that Mr. Timothy Nsirim, a former Chairman of Obio/Akpor similarly did same at St. Andrew's School, Mile One, Diobu, Port Harcourt allegedly in criminal conjunction with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and security operatives.
According to the statement,” Odili and Orage have surrendered their houses to members of PDP to do massive thumb-printing even after elections have come to a close.”
Semenitari however said the organisation would not accept any subversion of the people's will as Odili, Orage and Nsirim have allegedly shown.
“We agree with Rivers people that this time, their votes will be counted and their votes will count. Never again will the impudence of March 28th be repeated.
“GTCO calls on the Chairman of INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega, to beam the Commission's searchlight on Rivers State and ensure that the people's voices are not silenced”, the statement said.
