APC Engaging In Political Terrorism In Rivers, Akwa-Ibom, Says Secondus
The acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Uche Secondus, yesterday dismissed as reckless, unfortunate and disappointing comments purportedly credited to his counterpart in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun.
Secondus said the statement conveys the desperation by APC and the presidency to forcefully take over PDP states in the South-South zone, noting, “Chief Oyegun, while reacting to the ruling of the Court of Appeal judgment on Rivers State governorship petition declared he was more confident of winning Akwa-Ibom than any other state in the South-South and that it is almost a certainty. This is not only careless but also smacks of impunity and arrogance that have characterised the APC.”
He alleged that the statement also betrays APC’s dirty underhand deals with unscrupulous electoral and judicial operatives, which gives its National Chairman impetus to make sweeping statements that have no place in electoral reality.
According to him, “it is pertinent to ask how could Chief Oyegun have known for certainty the outcome of the gubernatorial dispute in Akwa-Ibom State, a matter that may end up in the Supreme Court? Is this not a clear indication so far that Chief Oyegun and the APC are indeed interfering with the judicial processes in their quest to forcefully take over PDP states?
“Having severally alerted Nigerians and the international community of the plans of the APC to decimate the opposition by “taking over” states controlled by the PDP.”
