PDP "unearthes" APC plot to sponsor factionalism

10 July 2014, 21:27

Lagos - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) said it had unearthed plans by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to sponsor youth to destabilize the former in the Rivers State.

According to the PDP, the plans included a scheme to sponsor individuals that would claim to be a faction of the party.

PD State Chairman of the PDP, Bro Felix Obuah, said such plot could succeed because the PDP was “democratically intact” in the state and did not have any internal squabbles.

In a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media, Jerry Needam, Obuah described such plans as “criminal and the crudest form of playing politics.”

Obuah enjoined all party members and supporters to be at alert and be wary of such plot by “desperadoes whose stock in trade is to cause crisis because of what they stand to benefit in such a chaotic situation.”

He also urged security agencies to be alive to such plot, “which aim is nothing short of plunging the state in another round of crisis as though it’s a political problem.”

“Notwithstanding, the PDP as a focused and law abiding party will not succumb to such cheap blackmail and will stop at nothing to follow due process to campaign and clinch all the elective offices in the State in 2015 general elections,” Obuah was quoted as saying.
