Rivers APC alleges plans by PDP/GDI to disrupt it registration exercise
The All Progressives Congress (APC), Rivers State Chapter said it has uncovered a plan by the leadership and members of the PDP & GDI to violently disrupt its ongoing registration exercise. They plan to unleash terror on innocent registration officers and members of the APC in the units, wards and LGAs in Rivers State during the exercise that kicked off on Wednesday, according to Chief Andy Nweye, Publicity Secretary of River State APC in a statement on Wednesday. He said, 'Rising from a meeting in the house of a PDP/GDI chieftain and former chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Council, LGA leaders of the PDP/GDI were instructed to ensure that all units of the registration centres are physically attacked with the assurance that the police in Rivers State is fully behind them'. The party called on all security agencies in Rivers State to take serious note of the information and do the needful to avoid the recourse to self-help by members of the APC as nobody or group has absolute monopoly of violence. 'We call on our Registration Officers (ROs) and the Supervisors to carry on with the exercise without any fear whatsoever while I call on the police to provide you with adequate security as you conduct the exercise', the statement concluded.
