Zubair stated that they are out to highlight the unhealthy development in the state chapter of the APC, hoping that it will draw the attention of the party leaders at the top to restore confidence, justice, trust, and respect for the party's constitution and discipline.

He said:

“it’s no longer news that we collectively resolved to reject in its entirety, the Governorship election results and challenge the outcome in courts of law because the elections was marred by fraud and gross violations of electoral act and other enabling laws.”

"Rivers voters were whipped, issued death threats, forced to vote PDP": APC's Cole earlier reported that the governorship candidate of the APC in Rivers state during the March 18 election, Tonye Cole, had alleged that there was heavy voter intimidation during the election.

According to Cole, voters were whipped and issued death threats, leading to a low turnout of voters during the poll.

The APC chieftain alleged that the PDP masterminded the act using the state's local government chairmen and councillors.
