Power Tussle in Rivers PDP May Consume Wike...Plans to Fight Dirty

By Albert Peter

The inside power game within the distraught Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State has taken a new dimension as the National Headquarters of the Party led by Adamu Muazu is poised for a showdown with the Supervising Minister of Education over his recent moves to stop any plans by the National Exco of the Party to change the present leadership of the party led by Felix Obuah.

Inside sources who wouldn't want to be mentioned spilled to Naijas Report that the Minister has been ordered to vacate the Court Order he obtained through a surrogate, Chukwuemeka Aaron, the PDP Chairman of Obio/Akpor LGA from a High Court presided over by Justice Evoh Chukwu.

The Court had ordered that:
1. INEC should recognize the Exco of PDP Rivers State led by Felix Obuah.

2. Barred the PDP and INEC from accepting candidates for elections from any other group other than those produced by Obuah.

3. Restrained the PDP National Secretariat from holding or conducting any congress for the purpose of selecting or recognizing new leaders, until the expiration of the four-year tenure of the Obuah group.

4. Restrained INEC or any of its officers from monitoring or supervising any congress in Rivers state and from accepting list of candidates for elections except those provided by the current leadership of the state.

However, privilege sources say Wike is rather bent on putting up a spirited fight against Muazu who is said to be acting on the orders of the President.
