Rivers PDP primaries.
About 500 Egbeda youths took to the streets and Rivers State PDP secretariat to protest over non conduct of People’s Democratic Party councillorship primary election in Ward 11 Egbeda community.
One of the councillorship aspirant -Eze Aruchi Omereji told DezMayorz that the people of Egbeda are protesting to call the attention of our able leader -Governor Nyesom Wike and our Father Felix Obuah (PDP chairman) to consider the good people of Egbeda and conduct a fresh primary election or declare me(Eze Aruchi) winner. The entire loyal members in Egbeda community gathered at the venue -state school 1 Egbeda from 7:30am to 6:08pm in obedience to party order to participate in the primary, but no electoral body /person nor electoral materials came and the Egbeda people went home at 6:10pm.
Later at 7:00pm, we heard that mr Humphrey Assor a co aspirant was declared winner of the purported primary election whereas no primary election took place. Below is his audio speech.
Also, Honourable Uchechukwu Ekwueme told DezMayorz that election in Egbeda was fraudly conducted in the night, the time when everyone had gone home due to curfew in Egbeda. They know that they cannot win the election so they exhibit delay tactics at night, the result is invalid because election did not hold in Egbeda community at all…. Our able leaders Gov Ezenwo Nyesom Wike and Sir Felix Obuah should ensure that a fresh primaries be conducted. Below is the speech.
Rivers State local government and councillorship election has been going on.
April 16 , 2018 was the day Egbeda, Emohua LGA ward 11 supposed to be conducted. But the election was not conducted rather someone (Humphrey) was declared winner after 7:30 pm when everyone had gone home.
All DezMayorz effort to hear from PDP chairman and Humphrey Assor was futile.
