Rivers PDP welcomes Chinda’s victory at tribunal

15 July 2016, 19:00

Port Harcourt - The Rivers State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has welcomed the victory of Kingsley Chinda, member representing Obio/Akpor Federal Constituency, at the election tribunal in Abuja.

State chairman, Felix Obuah, said the dismissal of the petition filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Tony Okocha, was an “eye opener”  that the election tribunal “was not necessarily set up to allocate underserving positions to petitioners on sentiments and, or false claims.”

“Every political office seeker has ample opportunities to convince the voters on why he should be preferred over his opponents before any election and not just relaxing, hoping to get through the backdoor what he did not work for, nor deserve,” said Obuah.

He further commended the election tribunal for the ruling.

He said rather than “waste his precious time and resources” pursuing a lost battle, Okocha should rightly channel his energies by closing ranks with the administration of his kinsman, Governor Nyesom Wike, to move the state to the height it deserves.

Obuah said the PDP saw political parties as only platforms for expressing party ideology and advancing strategies to achieve effective governance.

“It’s by no means a cavern,” said Obuah.

“We therefore, welcome all like minds and men and women of goodwill into our fold to join hands in giving our people effective leadership.”
