APC Invades Abua/Odual With Native Doctors
The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has condemned in totality the invasion of Abua/Odual communities by native doctors hired by the All Progressives Congress, APC through its stalwart, Hon Raphael Ekpelu, a former Council Chairman of Abolga and former member of the State House of Assembly to intimidate prospective voters ahead of next month's general elections.
The Party in a statement signed by the Special Adviser on Media to the State chairman, Jerry Needam said the use of native doctors to extract agreement and commitment from the people is apolitical and alien to Rivers culture, warning those involved in the sinister act to stop forthwith.
Political campaigns, the party noted is all about identifying the problems, needs and desires of the people and coming up with programmes that will satisfy those needs and presenting such in a manner to convince the electorate on the viability and possibility of realizing such dreams.
The PDP regrets that rather than apply this democratic principle to cultivate genuine commitment from the people, desperate APC stalwarts in the mould of Mr Ekpelu who have nothing to offer have decided to go the maverick route, forcing, mesmerizing and hypnotizing the people to believe in them, describing it as crude, wicked and unfortunate.
The PDP believes that despite useless charms and other diabolic means being used by these APC desperadoes, the party (PDP) in Abua/Odual and elsewhere in the State still commands tremendous followership who will not succumb to APC's satanic undertakings.
The party recalls that it's this incessant use of witchcraft by same APC political office holders under Gov Rotimi Amaechi on the people of Abua/Odual in the past that is responsible for the gross underdevelopment of the area including some recorded mysterious death of the illustrious sons of Abua/Odual, stressing that the nonsense must stop.
It therefore calls on the people of Abua/Odual not to be intimidated or deceived by those powerless native doctors and hold strongly to God to guide them to the right path of peace, progress and development which is the motto of the PDP and vote massively for Dr. Goodluck Jonathan for President, Chief Barr Nyesom Wike for Governor and other PDP Candidates on February 14 and 28, 2015 respectively.
