PDP Reveals Plan of Military Invasion...We'll Rather Die than Allow Ogah's Inauguration as Abia Governor

Ikpeazu & Ogah

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared that it will resist any attempt to inaugurate, Sampson Ogah, as the new governor of the state as it reveals plan of military invasion in the troubled state.

At the end of an emergency meeting in Umuahia late on Thursday, the Abia chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led by the state Chairman, Johnson Onuigbo, who was accompanied by members of the executive committee, has declared that it will resist any attempt to inaugurate, Uche Sampson Ogah, as the new governor of the state.

“We are ready for them, we are ready to die,” the party said, adding, “If they do it, then they are inviting anarchy and confusion in the state," the party declared.

Onuigbo who revealed that the party got wind of a plan to flood the state with military personnel, said such an invasion would trigger off anarchy, adding that the party was poised for showdown over the planned inauguration.

“Abia is not safe. I didn’t want to believe the rumour that the state will soon be invaded by the army because this is not a war zone.

“We want to inform the world that there is tension in Abia because democracy is about to be raped.

“As a party, we will resist any move by anybody to undermine the peace in the state,” the state PDP chairman, Onuigbo said.

He said that as a law-abiding state, the government had obtained an exparte injunction “restraining the state Chief Judge or any other judges from swearing in Mr. Ogah as governor”.

“We are ready for them, we are ready to die,” he said, adding, “If they do it, then they are inviting anarchy and confusion in the state.

“We are in a democracy so we want the world to hear and know that we are being shortchanged in Abia,” he said.

Onuigbo said the party had sent emissaries to Uche Ogah to persuade him “to sheath his sword and allow peace to reign in Abia” to no avail, adding that at the end of the current crisis, the party would met out sanction to Ogah for disregarding entreaties from the chieftains of the party.
