Nigeria’s main opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has exposed an alleged plot to impose a state of emergency on Rivers State by President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The PDP exposed that the plot to remove Governor Nyesom Wike from office by the APC is thickening as Buhari is holding a secret meeting with Senate Majority leader, Ali Ndume, twenty other APC Senators, Femi Gbajabiamila, House Leader of the House of Representatives and 60 other reps.
According to the tweets shared by the PDP on Twitter, the President held a meeting on the night of Sunday, March 20, 2016 and the agenda of the nocturnal meeting is to perfect the plot to incite violence in oil-rich Rivers State with the view of removing Wike from seat.
Last weekend, the PDP has claimed an unassailable lead in the legislative rerun elections which held on Saturday, March 19, 2016. The poll was marred by violence and reports of irregularities.
An INEC collation officer believed to be bribed by Nigeria’s transportation minister, Rotimi Amaechi, who is also a former governor of Rivers State, was apprehended with while attempting to replace original result sheets with three fake ones at Ward 10 of Port Harcourt Local Government Area.
Rotimi Amaechi stormed the Mile 1 Police Station where she was being detained in the company of Dakuku Peterside, the director general of NIMASA and Ibim Semenitari, the MD of NDDC with 400 soldiers and demanded the compromised INEC officer be released to him.
