PORT HAR-COURT— ALL Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State has described as untrue, publications in some national newspapers that there is a crack in the party.
Flanked by leaders of the party in the state, Deputy National Secretary of the party, Mr Orji Ngofa, who spoke to newsmen, yesterday, in Port Harcourt after a meeting of leaders of the party, said that some persons were busy planting stories in the media suggesting that the party was factionalised.
He also accused those behind the publications of allegedly maligning the Minister of Transportation, Mr Chibuike Amaechi, in some of the publications.
Urging the public to ignore such stories in the media, Ngofa said that the party was intact.
“We unequivocally state that the APC family in Rivers State under the leadership of Amaechi remains solidly unified, cohesive and intact. We wish to warn that any person or persons in the family that may lend themselves to the machinations of the enemy will be doing a great disservice to the party.”
“Some of these decampees have beaten a retreat back to their original party. Unfortunately, in doing so, they have tried to impress their new masters through planted articles in newspapers and other malfeasance. We know that these persons have notched up notoriety in lies and propaganda and pride themselves so much in doing so.
“This time particularly, their exit propaganda was to plant a highly noxious, obnoxious and vexatious story in a national newspaper portraying the APC in Rivers State as having broken into factions. The particular individual behind this heinous contraption knows that we know him. He also knows that all his life he has thrived on lies, brainless propaganda and worthless betrayal of friends and associates including those he has now run back to. We can only wish him and his co-travellers journey mercies to their original company,” he added.
