TVC E. Abia state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have vowed to stop the inauguration of Uche Ogah as the new governor of the state, saying they will rather die than see it happen.
Chairman of PDP in Abia state, Johnson Onuigbo said the action of INEC to issue Ogah a certificate of return could throw the state into anarchy and confusion.
“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.
“As a law-abiding state, the government had obtained an exparte injunction restraining the state Chief Judge or any other judges from swearing in Ogah as governor.
