Rivers APC denies alleged plan to disrupt elections

Mr. Chris Finebone, the Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress in Rivers State has denied allegations making the rounds that the party plans to disrupt elections in the state.

Finbone told the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Port Harcourt that the accusation by the Peoples Democratic Party was merely the result of their imagination.

He also said that the allegation that the Transportation Minister, Mr Rotim Amaechi was holding secret meetings in Abuja and strategising to disrupt elections in the state was another mere figment of PDP’s imagination.

“Well, the claim by PDP that the Minister for Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, is holding any meeting whatsoever, dwells only in the infantile imagination of the PDP characters behind such outlandish allegation,” he said.

NAN reports that PDP, during a media briefing on Tuesday, accused APC of conniving with the security agencies and employing other undemocratic strategies to disrupt elections in parts of the state.

Finebone urged the public not to take the accusation seriously, adding that it was a deliberate attempt to discredit APC and to dissuade its teeming supporters.

“Rivers PDP is doing exactly what the Holy Bible refers to as the guilty running when no one is pursuing.

“We hereby warn PDP to desist from maligning innocent members of APC who have done nothing wrong, whatsoever.”
