March 9 election: APC replies PDP’s allegation of planning to disrupt Saturday’s polls
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State has described as untrue the allegation by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that it is planning to use ex-militants to disrupt Saturday’s elections in the state.
The APC Publicity Secretary in Delta, Ogheneluemu Imonina, said in a statement issued on Wednesday in Asaba that PDP’s allegation was ludicrous, spurious and laced with lies and should be treated with levity, NAN reports.
“For the avoidance of doubt, APC is a responsible and responsive political party with human feelings and respect for the will of the common people.
“It is very clear to the discerning minds that the spurious and unfounded allegations of PDP in the said Press Release are a ruse and subterfuge to divert attention,” Imonina said.
Chief Funkekeme Solomon, Director-General, Delta PDP Campaign Organisation, on Tuesday in Asaba, alleged that the APC had concluded plans to use the ex-militants dressed in military uniforms to disrupt elections across the state.
“The APC, in its hell bent efforts to capture Delta State at all costs has set a dangerous plan in motion to mobilise a large number of ex-militants.
“We have been informed that these ex-militants when fully dressed as military personnel and armed with weapons, will now be deployed and filtered into PDP strongholds,” he alleged.
