The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the Rivers State election, Dakuku Peterside, believes that the Peoples Democratic Party will not get away with the electoral fraud allegedly perpetrated during the elections.
Dakuku said it was too early for the PDP to celebrate because the era of people getting away with electoral fraud was over.
He also described as outrageous, the claims by the PDP campaign that media organisations, civil society groups as well as foreign observers were induced to report that the election was flawed.
The candidate of the PDP, Nyesom Wike had in a stated that election observers were sponsored to condemned the polls in Rivers.
Dakuku however, said: “Are they saying that the European Union, the Embassy of the United States in Nigeria and several well-meaning friends of Nigeria who witnessed the sham in Rivers were induced?”
“You cannot cover the sun with one finger. Everybody who witnessed what happened in Rivers knew what happened. What about our party leaders and members that were murdered?”
“The blood of these innocent Nigerians and the tears of their widows and orphans will surely speak. On our part, we are going to court to seek justice for the Rivers people.”
