The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers
State has alerted security agencies in the state to be at alert
following an apparent plot by the opposition Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP) in the state to instigate the destruction of its
Secretariat and turn around to blame APC for the act.
“We are alarmed by the allegation by Rivers PDP that APC agents are
planning to attack the party’s State Secretariat in Port Harcourt.
We see this as a case of kite-flying by PDP as we do not have any
such plans. Our belief is that PDP may be planning to sponsor the
purported destruction and turn around to blame it on APC so as to
whip up public sympathy in view of its diminishing fortunes in
Rivers,” said Rivers APC Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, in a
statement issued in Port Harcourt.
Continuing, Ikanya said in the statement: “Why should APC agents
attack PDP Secretariat? PDP hardly exists in Rivers State and we
have no reason to attack their makeshift State Secretariat. APC is
the party in power in Rivers State and the party of Rivers people.
Besides, we are a disciplined party which plays strictly by the
rules of the game out of our desire to enhance democracy not only in
the in the state but also across the country.
“We see this falsehood being spewed out by the embattled PDP State
Chairman, Mr. Felix Obuah, and his propaganda mouthpiece, Mr. Jerry
Needam, as an important clue, so we hereby advise the relevant
security organs to take note and be watchful because if I know
Rivers PDP leaders very well, they are planning to attack their
Secretariat as a strategy to ask for more funds from their master,
Chief Nyesome Wike, and his sponsors at the Presidency. Mr Felix
Obuah and Needam have seen the desperation in Chief Wike over his
unrealizable and unattainable ambition to govern Rivers State and
are ready to milk the poor fellow dry as falsehood has become their
trademark.” With the collapse of the hotel business of Mr. Obuah and
with Jerry Needam newspaper business outfit not yielding him much,
they now see Chief Wike as their own NNPC and ATM Card who whenever
they are broke financially will come up with one funny report or the
other hoping to rush to their banks for the usual transfers”.
APC in the statement also alerted the general public that Rivers PDP
and its leadership have set up a committee to embark upon the
dismantling and destruction of all APC billboards mounted at very
strategic places in the state. “We plead with security organs in the
state to intervene and stop this good-for-nothing party from
carrying out this wicked plot against a peaceful party like APC,”
the statement said.
APC said that the planned destruction of its billboards is part of a
wicked plot by PDP to turn Rivers State into a theatre of war.
“We are aware that they are seeking the Presidency’s approval to
sack the incumbent Commissioner of Police, Mr. Tunde Ogunsakin, who
just celebrated his 100 days of great feats and peace in Rivers
State and to bring back their party member, CP Joseph Mbu, by the
end of June, 2014 after all the other CPs contacted for this evil
act to unleash unprecedented insecurity on the state turned down
their plea. We also have it on good authority that they have
succeeded in securing the approval and support of most of the
militant warlords in the State with a view to destabilising the
peace but we will resist every plot to return Rivers State to the
dark days of insecurity,” APC said.
It concluded by commending Churches and the good people of Rivers
State “for resolving to ensure that PDP is formally buried by 2015
in the State because of their evil plot against Rivers State and her
people as we wish to assure them that we will not disappoint them as
they entrust their faith and destiny on us. Evil and People
Deceiving People (PDP) can’t be allowed to prevail on good, change
and peace (APC).” God forbid!!!
