The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the military of rigging the December 10 rerun elections in favour of All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Senator Magnus Abe.

Abe won the seat for the Rivers South-East Senatorial District during the elections.

The Rivers PDP made the comment via a statement released by State Chairman, Felix Obuah.

The statement reads:

“The declaration of Abe as winner in the purported election was a grave error as available records show that the military, SARS personnel and other security agencies massively rigged the election in the whole of Rivers South East senatorial district on December 10, 2016 in favour of Abe.”

“PDP will never rest until this injustice against the people is addressed and the opportunity to have a candidate of their choice given to them as of right.”
