Rivers ACN Alleges Plots To Divide Party Ranks
The Rivers State Chapter of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, says no amount of threat or conspiracy against the party or its individual members by detractors and, or those not comfortable with the critical position of ACN in the State will make them shy away from ensuring that those entrusted with management of State affairs are closely monitored to ensure good governance.
The ACN said this in a statement issued and signed by Jerry Needam, State Publicity Secretary of the party against the backdrop of surreptitious moves to cause dissatisfaction among the party members in the State ahead of 2015 general elections to further silence virile political opposition in the State.
Jerry Needam further alleged millions of naira being pushed into the party ranks aimed at killing the ACN in the State by those who see the prying eyes of the party, and voice of the masses as constituting obstruction in their way to perfect their evil plots of milking the State dry.
The ACN spokesman said this is not unexpected but assured these anti-democracy elements have already failed because it's most unnatural to fool all the people all the time.
While expressing satisfaction with the level of impact it has so far made to raise political consciousness among Rivers people and the bar of transparency and accountability for political office holders in the State, the ACN re-assured there is no internal wrangling in the party, stressing that anybody whipping up such sentiment must be playing out an already written script by fifth columnists.
“For purposes of clarification therefore, the governorship candidate of the ACN in the 2011 elections, Dr Abiye Sekibo still remains the leader of ACN in Rivers State while Esuku M. Esuku is the indisputable State Chairman”, the ACN Publicity Secretary remarked.
The ACN for now, is concerned about ensuring that the remaining fortunes of the impoverished Rivers people are not completely mortgaged by the unrepentant political merchants before the dawn of the new era of leadership with vision in 2015, Jerry Needam concluded.
