PDP Is Desperately Offering Bribe To Compromise Judges – Abia Govt. Fires Back, Debunks LP’s Alleged Plot To Protest

The Abia state government has denied an allegation that it, alongside the Labour Party, are grouping some people to stage a protest to intimidate the governorship election petition tribunal and influence it’s judgement in their favour.

Responding to the allegation, Mr Ferdinand Ekeoma, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Governor of Abia State in a press release, accused the PDP of engaging in propaganda and issuing deceitful information because their “situation has become very pathetic due to lack of access to public funds”.

Ekeoma further alleged that the PDP have been going round looking for who to bribe to compromise Tribunal judges all to no avail.

He advised the PDP to desist from raising false alarm and called on Abians and residents to ignore every from of fabricated information, assuring that governor Alex Otti is focused on governance and the welfare of the people.





The attention of Abia State Government has been drawn to a release issued by the Abia State Chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) wherein the party alleged that Abia state government and the Labour Party were planning to mobilize their supporters to stage a  protest in order to influence the outcome of the Abia Governorship Tribunal petition filed by the PDP candidate.

PDP went further to allege that the government and the Labour Party were also planning to cause mayhem should the outcome go against them.


While restraining ourselves from joining issues with the PDP and their corrupt leaders whose situation has become very pathetic due to lack of access to public funds hence the resort to  this scurrilous infantile strategy of misleading fabrication, it’s important to put the records straight by stating the following:


1. It’s the PDP and their leaders that have made the world to know that there’s even a case at the tribunal through their endless propaganda and misleading reports which they churn out on a daily basis to hoodwink and misinform unsuspecting members of the public.

Governor Alex Otti and the Labour Party have been focused on governance while his lawyers pay attention to what happens at the tribunal.

2. Even though Labour Party is the ruling party, we have conducted ourselves with decency and decorum by refusing to unleash hoodlums in and around the tribunal premises like the PDP and the former government did during their tenure. Facts on ground can clearly prove that the PDP and its army of thugs have been the ones constituting nuisance through their actions and utterances, on the wrong assumption that their poor siege strategy would stampede the justices to hand over undeserved victory to them. This plot is dead on arrival.

Again, we have it on good authority that the PDP and their candidates have been carrying money around the country looking for who to bribe to compromise the judges without luck. 


Again, if the false alarm was also to ward off our supporters who may henceforth want to be at the Tribunal while the PDP and their hired noisy supporters continue to besiege the court and give false impression of their popularity and acceptability, then they have also failed, because our supporters will peacefully remain at the tribunal to observe proceedings as required by law.

3. The Alex Otti led-government and the Labour Party are too big and too responsible to contemplate causing mayhem in a state they govern and strive to restore sanity after PDP’s years of horrendous pillaging and plundering. 


4. Since we understand PDP’s modus operandi and can predict that this false alarm was to give a false lead that would divert the preying eyes of security agents away from them while they conclude their plans and execute their nefarious plot of causing mayhem in Abia, we therefore call on security agents to swing into action in order to nip whatever plot they may have in the bud.


5. Finally, we call on Abia residents and Abians all over the world  to continue to ignore the opposition PDP and their agents of destruction who are bent on causing a breakdown of law and order over their deserved defeat at the polls. 

Governor Alex Otti will continue to prioritise the welfare and well-being of all Abians irrespective of political, sectional and religious differences while ensuring the protection of life and property of all Abians.
