Elders and major stakeholders of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Akwa Ibom State have accused the All Progressives Congress, APC, of plans to forcefully take over the state and Rivers State in the re-run elections.
Senator Anietie Okon, who spoke on behalf of the group in Uyo, was reacting to comments credited to Imo State governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, that
“Rivers and Akwa Ibom states are very strategic to APC”.
The elders said such could meant that APC was planning to subvert the collective will of the Rivers, Akwa Ibom people, warning that any attempt to engage in any form of illegality would be resisted.
His words:“When the APC talks about Akwa Ibom and Rivers states as being strategic to their objectives, it appears it is their ravenous and ghoulish intent to take over Akwa Ibom State by force.
“That implies that there is a determination by them to break all the rules and break all the laws and through subjugation, conquer the Akwa Ibom people. It will not happen.
“We are not surprised given the document that is credited to the APC where they detailed their plans to trample upon the express will of the people by their chaotic, riotous and contradictory process that have been handed down through the tribunal.”
