Rivers State Government has denied the allegation made against governor Wike that he is planning to destabilize the All Progressive Congress, APC.
Acccording to the State Commissioner for Information and Communications Paulinus Nsirim, the allegations are not just ridiculous, but hilarious.
Recall that Former Publicity Secretary of APC, Chris Finebone, had accused Wike’s government of planning to cripple APC nationwide.with frivolous court cases.
Reacting, Nsirim, described Finebone’s accusations as ‘a more sinister, disturbing template already deployed in previous circumstances to heat up the polity.
He said: “Finebone’s statement is ridiculous in context and hilarious in its contained allegations, especially when placed against the backdrop of a political party that has mired in endless internal litigations, and whose key figures have been intent and tenaciously insistent on testing the authenticity of their demands in court.
“Rivers APC should first remove the log in its eye before accusing any other party, or even the government, of attempting to destablise it. There must be something fundamentally wrong with a party like the APC, which nurses a morbid phobia for any attempt to test the legality of whatever decision its godfathers and dictators foist on its members, through legitimate due processes.
“The lame excuse of always alluding to ‘tendencies within the APC in Rivers State that have been working in cahoots with the state’ jangles like the repetitive chorus of a broken record.
“Neither Governor Wike nor the PDP will waste time engaging in any legal battle with a party that has already self-destructed because of its own uncontrollable appetite for legal battles.”
