The Rivers State Chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC), has said that it has uncovered plans by a group sponsored by Gov. Nyesom Wike and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to destabilize Saturday’s APC Congresses in Rivers State, adding that the group which is suspected to have some members of APC in their fold have already gone to work.
A statement signed by the APC State Chairman, Chief (Dr.) Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, said “Information unearthed by the APC confirm that the group collected huge sum of money from the governor with the sole purpose of discrediting the congresses through wild allegations against leaders of the party especially the leader of the party in Rivers State and Honourable Minister for Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and the State Chairman, Chief (Dr.) Davies Ibiamu Ikanya amongst others.”
The press release reads: “Details of the plan seem to have been rolled out already as the group has gone on air to accuse the Minister of hijacking materials for the congresses, an accusation that exposes the ignorance of the group and makes absolutely no sense at all.
“Whereas the APC is working hard to fully expose the full dimension of the plot and the evil people that are hell-bent on destabilizing our party congresses, we urge party faithful and the general public to ignore the well-known antics of Gov. Wike, the PDP and their collaborators within and outside the APC who have sold their souls to blood money. The party re-assures all members of strict adherence to the guidelines of the party congresses and not to be distracted by anyone or group under any guise.
“The party would like our members and the general public to refuse to be deceived by these agents of doom who are likely to employ diverse means to destabilize the party in fulfilment of the agreement between them and their sponsors.”
