Chidi Lloyd, the director-general of the campaign organisation of Tonye Cole, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Rivers state has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of abandoning the party “when they needed him the most.
The governorship and state house of assembly elections the state were suspended indefinitely by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) due to “widespread disruption”.
However, Lloyd, speaking as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today said Buhari has turned his back on them.
He said: “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,” he said.
“We are in the 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.”
