The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has responded to Sunday’s press release by Jerry Needam on behalf of the State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Felix Obuah in which the PDP Chairman claimed that the All Progressives Congress, APC, and some of its leaders in Rivers State are plotting the arrest of PDP members in Rivers State as a result of the forthcoming rerun elections in Rivers State.
The APC in a press release signed by its spokesman Mr Chris Finebone, considered the statement by the PDP Chairman as a “revised strategy by the PDP to provide cover for their ongoing project of planting incriminating materials in homes and offices belonging to notable APC leaders in Rivers State and have them incarcerated with the connivance of hired security officers as was done in the botched matter concerning No. 12, Isiokpo Street D/Line, Port Harcourt recently.”
Continuing, the party noted that, “it is indeed very clear that having bungled its attempt to rope in a notable APC chieftain, Hon. Emma Chinda and others, in a purported printing of INEC materials which was planned, executed and orchestrated by the PDP, the latest accusation that APC is planning the arrest of PDP members is only a clever-by-half strategy to create a façade for the Gestapo-style project of the PDP which recently suffered its first setback between No. 12 Isiokpo Street and Government House Port Harcourt.”
