Senator Abe’s Alleged Shooting: We Are Vindicated - PDP

Says Abe’s Incident Full Of Fictions...Welcomes Rivers Housing Commissioner’s Resignation
By Rivers PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party, Rivers State chapter says the attack on some sections of the Gokana Council secretariat today, Monday, January 13, 2014 by angry Youths vindicates its earlier position that the whole story surrounding the alleged shooting of the Senator representing Rivers South-East Senatorial District, Magnus Abe was dramatized and full of fictions.

The Party notes with bitterness the level of desperation on the side of Governor Amaechi and his allies which led them to hire thugs to cause obstructions to movement and activities along the Ogoni axis of the East-West Road early today in a quest to draw attention to the alleged shooting of the Senator yesterday in Port Harcourt.

The PDP says it is vindicated as the thugs who were promised N10,000 each on completion of their assignment on the road, by their employers, were disappointed with the payment of N1000 each, an action that ignited the youths to vent their anger on the Gokana Council secretariat building, leading to the looting and massive damage of some sections of the building and vehicles parked around the vicinity.

The thugs also in a bid to get the N10,000 each as promised, are on the trail of the Gokana Council Chairman, Mr Ledee Demua Ledee and the State Commissioner of Works, Chief Victor Giadom, who the hoodlums said engaged them.

In like manner, the Peoples Democratic Party today welcomes the resignation of the Rivers State Commissioner for Housing, Hon. Stanley Marshall Uwom from the Governor Amaechi's Executive Council.

The Party believes that it is only men without courage and those who prefer to continue to act irresponsibly that will allow themselves to be tossed around by Governor Amaechi, expressing optimism that in no distant time, the Governor will be left alone to hide his face in shame.
