APC refutes plans to stage Rivers protests

17 October 2016, 10:06Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied accusations it was planning to undermine the peace and security in Rivers State through protests.

State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Dr Austin Tam-George, reportedly made the accusations.

"The statement is the most fictional, puerile and outlandish story ever to come out of the infantile and degenerate mind of any living being anywhere on mother earth.

"Everything about that (Tam-George's) statement suggests that the author is planning a big scam on his principal, Governor Nyesom Wike for monetary reward," said APC regional spokesperson, Chris Finebone.

"The APC is worried that an adult could plot to obtain funds from his principal by contriving an imaginary scenario and cook up a false story in order to justify his next financial proposal to his principal at the expense of the name of APC."

Finebone said APC had no tradition of chaos Rivers State, hence the dismissal of Tam-George’s accusations.

"Dr Tam-George should take his mischief elsewhere."

It could not be ascertained why Tam-George made the allegations but relations between APC and Tam-Geroge’s People’s Democratic Part are tense.

There are counter-accusations of violence between the two parties.
