The Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Rivers State, Bro. Felix Obuah has condemned the alleged airlift and release of N5billion to the Minister of Transportation, Mr Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi by agents of the Federal Government for the purpose of compromising INEC personnel and security agents participating in the Rivers rerun elections.
In a statement by Pastor Jerry Needam, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Rivers State PDP Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah, the party called on the international community and relevant security agencies to investigate the release and distribution of the said N5billion which appalled passengers of the commercial airline as it was offloaded into CBN trucks on the tarmac of the Port Harcourt International Airport.
The party added that all those found to be involved in this alleged illegal trafficking of funds for the rerun elections should be prosecuted.
It will be recalled that online q pictures of a commercial airline offloading N5billion into trucks of the CBN on Friday night at the Port Harcourt International Airport shocked the world as the funds were released on a day declared public holiday.

Special Adviser to the Rivers State PDP Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah.
