The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) of plotting to to destabilise Gombe State.

The party alleged that the APC has perfected its plan to 'unleash its venom on the peace-loving people of Gombe state using the instruments of lies, deceit and propaganda just as it did in Rivers state.'

According to a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh, it

According to the PDP, 'We wish to alert Nigerians on the real intention behind the unpatriotic statement by the APC wherein its spokesperson, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in his usual stock in trade, maliciously dished out tissues of lies and fabrications against the PDP-led Gombe state government with the aim of causing disaffection among the people and worsening the security situation in the North East geo-political zone where their unguarded and provocative utterances have continued to motivate and fuel insurgency.'

The party denied claims by APC that the Dankwambo-led administration has clamped down on any APC member and engaged in the destruction of property owned by the APC.

'Is it that the APC do not want Nigerians to live in peace? Why is APC bent on causing disaffection among the peace-loving people of Gombe State who have continued to show their commitment to live in harmony under the PDP-led administration? Why would they insist on sowing seeds of discord among our people as a means to actualise their inordinate quest for power?' the PDP queried.

The PDP described the APC onslaught against Gombe as a failed project and charged the people of the state to continue to be on the alert and resist plots by the opposition to 'destroy the peace and unity they enjoy under the PDP-led administration.'
