The Presidential Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said it would not hold its campaign rally in Rivers State to avoid any loss of lives.

Daniel Bwala, a Spokesperson for the Atiku/Okowa Campaign Organisation, made this known during an interview on Arise Television’s The Morning Show.

While stating that the party has all it takes to storm Rivers State and hold its rally, Bwala said the PDP would not engage in what will cause the loss of lives of innocent people.

He stated that the main opposition party had held its rally in Enugu, a state controlled by a G-5 governor, without any incident.

Bwala said, “Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi is a G-5 Governor, but he received our candidate in Enugu, and we had our rally there without any acrimony.

“But in Rivers, even Wike’s fellow indigenes were chased out of the state through threats and violence. We are talking about a D-G of the campaign in his state. He denied us from using a venue, and we decided to use a venue that is proprietary ownership of a member of the party. Guess what?

“He sent thugs or people who were sympathetic to him to destroy the structure, and when Abiye Sekibo went there to see what was happening, they sprayed bullets on him, which is a toxic environment, when they went to Lagos, an APC state, they didn’t terrorise us.

“We went to Borno, and they were limited to attacking our convoy. But a member of the party whose entire life…I doubt if the Governor, in his years of practising law, had amassed N5m before he joined politics.

“Everything he has, he benefited from the party, and there were many people in the state far better than him, but today he says he is the alpha and omega.
