PDP says Nyesom Wike didn't mastermind Ogoni killings

The Chairman, Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Felix Obuah, has dismissed the statement by the All Progressives Congress that the Fact-Finding mission by the House of Representatives Committee on the killing of innocent persons in Ogoni communities on February 22 and 23, 2016 was sponsored by Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike.

PDP described the allegation as an admittance by the APC that it actually deployed soldiers to Ogoniland and the entire state during the March 19, 2016 re-run elections to do everything to deliver its candidates in the elections.

The PDP chairman in a statement signed by his media aide, Jerry Needam observed that the attitude of the APC to a process aimed at giving justice to the people of Ogoni, who have been made to suffer undue abuses and killed for no just cause is quite unfortunate and least expected of a party that ought to place the dignity of human life above political ambition of individuals.

Obuah then out rightly condemned the APC position saying rather than facing the real issues and facts already revealed at the public hearing by the Committee in Port Harcourt on Monday, April 18, 2016, which indicts the Nigerian Army and some APC candidates, including, Mr. Barry Mpigi and Magnus Abe, on the atrocities committed in Ogoniland, the APC is only making efforts to cover them up and distort the stunning revelations by witnesses and members of victims’ families.”
