The Abia chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that it will resist any attempt to inaugurate, 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 made the resolution and declaration at the end of its emergency meeting in Umuahia yesterday.
The state Chairman of the party, Johnson Onuigbo, accompanied by members of the executive committee, said the party got wind of a plan to flood the state with military personnel. Mr. Onuigbo said such an invasion would trigger off anarchy, adding that the party was poised for showdown over the planned inauguration.
He described the judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja, which ordered that Mr. Ogah be sworn in as “a rape of democracy.”
