APC denies involvement in rising Rivers tensions

11 August 2015, 08:45Okoro Chinedu

Lagos – The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has shrugged off accusations by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) it was behind the present breakdown of law and order in Port Harcourt and environs in the Rivers State.

Chris Finebone, APC Rivers State Publicity Secretary, said the party’s attention had been drawn to a press release by Governor Nyesom Wike, signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Opunabo Inko-Tariah, claiming the APC’s involvement in such activities.

“It is mind-boggling to imagine how any individual with full control of his faculties and who understands how the present government in Rivers State came into existence can make such vexatious, obnoxious, false and patently diversionary statement,” said Finebone.

Finebone charged the PDP in Rivers State stole the mandate of Rivers people by arming cult groups and criminal gangs to kill and maim innocent people and residents, terrorising and making it impossible for voters to exercise their mandate during the last general elections.

APC is challenging the poll outcome, which steered Wike to power, with the Elections Trinubal.

“The quest by the APC to get justice for the people through the tribunals is proceeding apace,” said Finebone.
