The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of been responsible for a protest on Tuesday at the Abuja residence of Justice Mary Odili, a Justice of the Supreme court.
Mr Yekini Nabeni, APC’s Deputy National Secretary exonerated the APC while speaking with newsmen in Abuja, he alleged that the PDP and a governor from the geopolitical zone sponsored the protest, warning that public should not be hoodwinked by the PDP.
Nabena said nobody should be fooled by the usual antics of the PDP, who are known for protesting from one embassy to another.
He stated that the PDP sponsored protesters who claimed to be “APC supporters” as a smokescreen to portray the Bayelsa APC Governorship candidate, Chief David Lyon and his APC supporters in bad light.
“Nobody should be fooled by the usual antics of the PDP. Resort to extra-judicial tactics such as maligning the Judiciary and its officials is the PDP’s stock-in-trade. The same hired urchins the PDP Chairman, Uche Secondus has used for his senseless protests to the embassies of the UK, US and the European Union were used for Tuesday’s protests at Justice Odili’s residence.
“The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike aside being the main financier of the PDP must explain his inexplicable interest in the Governorship of Bayelsa state. The people of Rivers state must begin to ask their governor how and what he uses their money for.
“The APC National leadership is already pursuing all legal avenues to contest the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare Duoye Diri as Bayelsa Governor, having failed to meet the mandatory constitutional requirement to become the governor.
“Also, our leaders have already told our supporters to avoid violent confrontations while legal avenues are sort to review INEC’s unconstitutional decision. Our people have listened and are confident our judicial system will ensure that the people’s will and justice is done.” Nabena said.
