The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said that it is shocked at the reasons given by the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), justifying the killing of scores of Rivers people by the APC hired military and FSARS during the Presidential, National Assembly and Governorship/State Assembly elections respectively.
A statement by the State Chairman of the PDP, Bro Felix Obuah through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam said when PDP first raised alarm over the sinister plot by the APC to visit mayhem on the State if they were omitted on the ballot as witnessed during the Presidential and National Assembly elections, many did not believe it.
We’ve however been vindicated, the statement further noted, given the admission of one Chris Fynebone who still claims to be the spokesman of APC despite the supreme court judgement stripping him of all paraphernalia of office of the APC in the State that the onslaught unleashed on the hapless innocent Rivers people was a revenge of alleged killings in 2015 that saw the APC at the receiving end.
The State PDP boss said any other foolishness could be forgiven but for one to rejoice and celebrate the massive killing of his kith and kin to say the least, is the height of stupidity, describing Mr. Fynebone’s perception and justification of the killing of over fifty Rivers sons and daughters in Abonnema, over 10 in Ogoniland, about five in Andoni and scores of others elsewhere in the State as a useless life which in itself is early death.
“We are even shocked the more that Mr Fynebone in his passion to access power to legitimately showcase the animal in him but God forbid, boasted that he and his paymasters in the APC are satisfied with the 2019 general election killings in Rivers State” Bro Obuah regretted.
The State PDP Chairman was however quick to remind Mr Fynebone that passions whether for power or any other thing else are like fire, useful in a thousand ways and dangerous only in one through their excesses.
Bro. Obuah appealed to Rivers people to continue to trust in God who sees beyond the superficial and remains the final arbiter, and discountenance the misleading and many lies of the APC in an attempt to justify the massacre of ‘Our People’ as though they were mere animals.
The PDP he said, is rooted in God and service to the people and God willing, ‘though they gather and conspire’ but in vain they do so, reassuring that in the end the PDP will have the last laugh to God’s glory.
