The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the outburst by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government that it would have dragged in Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, but for his constitutional immunity, confirmed the fears that government wants to silence the opposition. I
The party National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan said in a statement that “It is shocking that instead of calling for an investigation into the serious revelation, the Federal Government resorted to siege mentality to scare the governor, ostensibly to cover up the severity of the allegation.”
He noted that “Nigerians will recall that the PDP had earlier raised the alarm over plots to harass, intimidate, implicate and orchestrate untoward situations like assassinations, unexplained accidents, inexplicable “armed robbery” attacks, high profile abduction and sudden disappearances of opposition leaders and members,”
PDP therefore, “invites all Nigerians and the international community to note this threat against Wike, as well as the action and inaction of the APC-led Federal Government, as we are not prepared to leave anything to chance”.
