The Former Deputy Chairman of the party made known his action in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital while briefing journalists why he decided to tore his party membership card and join the ruling party in the state.
Atuma stated that he can no longer in good conscience associate with the AAC/APC alliance, whose only interest is to unleash mayhem on Rivers people through the use of security forces.
According to him, “As at Today 27th March 2019, every arrangement has been made to disrupt the collation and annoucement of the Governorship election results as scheduled by INEC between April 2nd- 5th 2019.
“There are plans to cause bloodshed leading to total breakdown of law and order between April 1st to 5th 2019.
This is in furtherance of their plan to create a state of Emergency in Rivers State, where Governor Wike Term in office would have expired ” he said.
He added that the petition filed against the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner and INEC National Chairman by the AAC Governorship Candidate contain same false allegations with his suit at the Federal High Court in Abuja, noting tha the facts are contained in the affidavit sworn to by the Former Deputy Governorship Candidate of the party, Chief Akpo Bomba Yeeh.
The embattled deputy chairman also stated that from available data from AAC agents, the 2019 Rivers State Governorship election was won by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.
“Our party agents inundated us with information from across Rivers State that the PDP won the Governorship and State Assembly elections in Rivers State.
“There is a sinister plot between the AAC/APC alliance to rig the 2019 in Rivers State and subvert the will of Rivers people”, he said.
