The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has congratulated the leadership of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, following its decision to withdraw a clueless suit filed against Order 21 and Order 22.
Spokesman for the Consolidation of the New Rivers Vision Campaign Council, Rt. Hon Ogbonna Nwuke said in reaction that the APC’s resolve to withdraw the matter was borne out of the understanding that the matter brought before Justice Emmanuel Obile was frivolous, defective and baseless.
“We want to congratulate the APC for doing what is right by withdrawing a frivolous and inconsequential suit brought against Orders 21 and 22.
“For once, the APC has told the Rivers people the truth. The truth is that it deliberately attempted to misled public opinion by going to court.
“As we know now, there was never any substance in the suit. What we cannot comprehend is why the APC is trying to say it withdrew for strategic reasons. What is strategic in telling lies?
“Haven withdrawn the suit, the APC cannot in all honesty claim that the executive orders are still illegal.
“If the executive orders and the position taken by the Rivers State House of Assembly are illegal, why did it withdraw from court?
“Accordingly, the claim that the APC withdrew for strategic reasons is neither here nor there.
“The only strategic reason that we know which has led the APC to withdraw the suit, is the realization that there is no way it could win a matter that is deceitful, frivolous, defective and baseless.
The PDP urged the Rivers people to shun the APC, saying the party is populated by pretenders.
“These people are pretenders. They are not patriots. They are people without a plan. They have no vision and certainly do not love the people of Rivers State.
“On the other hand, the PDP has proof of its sincerity, focus and determination.
“Our State is registering progress because of the PDP. The achievement of Governor Nyesom Wike is proof of what the PDP represents.
“Which is why we urge the Rivers people to vote for Siminalayi Fubara. He is not a product of lies and backstage manipulation as we have in the APC.
