RIVERS state government has fired back at the acting National Chairman, All Progressive Congress, APC, Mr Segun Oni, describing his allegations that governor Nyesom Wike was behind recent pocket of violence in the state as a ploy to flood the state with soldiers and use them to hijack ballot boxes in the March 19 rerun elections.
Commissioner for Information and Communications, Dr Austin Tam-George in a statement Thursday in Port Harcourt accused the APC of taking propaganda to a ridiculous height, ascribing every dead person in the state a member of the APC.
“The attempt by the APC to appropriate every dead person in River State as their member might mean that the APC is in fact the sponsor of these satanic cult clashes, all in an attempt to destabilize the Wike administration,” the commissioner said. ”
The APC’s reckless and false allegations were part of a plan to incite the military and other security forces against the people of Rivers State. It is a crude plan to militarize the state and use the security forces to steal the results of the forthcoming re-run election’, the commissioner said
