Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike has alleged that the All Progressives Congress, APC, is trying to penetrate the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in an attempt to distract the party’s leadership.
He disclosed that the ruling party is using “one or two persons” to carry out their aims as he spoke on Wednesday after a closed-door meeting with party stakeholders in Plateau State.
A statement by Wike’s spokesman, Kelvin Ebiri, quoted Wike as saying efforts were on to ensure that APC’s plans failed.
According to Wike: “APC is trying to penetrate our party to make sure that the leadership of the party at the national level is being distracted through one or two persons.
“But we are making sure that does not happen. If the party is united, then we are sure of coasting home in 2023.
“And not just the national election, also Plateau State, knowing fully well that Plateau is a PDP State but somehow, we are no longer in power in Plateau State.”
