The National Secretary of the Caretaker/ Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator James Akpanudoedehe has explained why there is presence of heavy security agents at the National Secretariat of the party.
The scribe speaking at a ress briefing on Monday, he said that the security presence was to forestall the breakdown of law and order.
It will be recalled that police personnel took over the Secretariat of the ruling All Progressives Congress checking those coming into the secretariat situated at Blantyre Street, Abuja.
It has been alleged that the motive is to make security agents to threaten security intelligence.
He said “The police is here to strengthen the leadership of Governor Buni, the Caretaker Chairman of the APC. Whenever you have a security report that you are privy to, it is incumbent on our part to strengthen so that we can protect you, the life and property of the APC.
“APC cannot be embarrassed because this is a national government. Therefore we take measures to forestall any happening. We cannot underestimate security reports, you cannot play down on them. We can’t take laws into our hands. You don’t expect us to call thugs. The right thing to do is to inform the police” he said.
