Chidi Lloyd, an ally of the leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State, Chibuike Amaechi, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of turning against the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State.
Chidi Lloyd said this when he appeared on Channels TV Politics Today.
DAILY POST reported earlier that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, suspended the governorship and State House of Assembly elections indefinitely, in the state.
The electoral umpire cited widespread disruption.
Lloyd, a frontline member of the Rivers APC and Director-General of the campaign organisation of Tonye Cole, said Buhari has abandoned the party members in the state when they needed him the most.
The Ikwere-born politician alleged that election results in the state were doctored till the exercise was suspended.
He said this happened because Buhari turned his back on party members in the state.
According to him, “The party is being treated like this in the state because of our support for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 and unfortunately for those who supported the president, he has turned his back on us.
“We are in pains, we are in pains to watch President Buhari do this to us… President Buhari should open up a probe into the activities of INEC.”
Llyod said INEC was using “well known PDP fellows as collation officers in the States.”
