In his word “ it was a show of shame and desperation that the Senatorial District was turned into a Theaters OF WAR, WHERE BLOOD LETTING WAS THE ORDER OF THE DAY, ballot boxes were carted away by sponsored thugs and miscreants . if that was all it would have been mildly understood. But thugs and desperate politician of the PDP extraction some whom held sensitive position in government like former SSG and a former commissioner of Finance. that these people could stoop low to the extent of directing the wanton destruction of life and property. This is not hearsay: as it is on record that chief MOWAN ETETE, his elder brother and Nephew were killed in cold blood in Andoni axis not to talk of the over TEN innocent souls that were killed in Ogoni axis some of which are unreported”.
HE continued ‘’Who will believe that the most promising and fast rising party like ACCORD Party will not have a single vote for themselves? The answer is not farfetched as the members of the PDP using government institution and apparatus of power intimidated voters, manipulated the processes of election, altered the result and all other ingredient of electoral fraud were clearly manifested with the intent to scuttle the will of the people of Rivers south east Senatorial district.
