All Progressives Congress’ stalwarts have accused the Governor of Ogun State of planning to stir violence during the visit of Nigeria President, Muhammadu Buhari to state. The Publicity Secretary of the party, Tunde Oladunjoye stated today.
He had this to say, “it has become necessary to alert the general public, especially the security agencies, that the members of the Allied People’s Movement (APM), being sponsored by the Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, are planning to disrupt and cause mayhem and bloodshed at the Presidential Rally slated for the MKO Abiola Stadium, Abeokuta, tomorrow, Monday February 11, 2019”, he explained.
He disclosed that Intelligence reports at their disposal reveal that leaders of the surrogate party have been circulating messages to their members to attend the APC Presidential Rally in specific uniforms and campaign materials, in such a way that they would be identified and saved from terror that would be unleashed on APC members as soon as the flag is presented to the APC candidate, Prince Dapo Abiodun.
The plan to embarrass the President and attack our members at the rally have actually been on for about a month, and only being perfected now.
He added that the Governor was also mobilizing people who have been instructed to boo the President after handing over the flag to the APC governorship candidate, Prince Dapo Abiodun.
Oladunjoye said to prepare grounds for this machination, some hoodlums had been empowered to paint some of the signages of APM with black paints with the evil intention of ascribing the act to APC members. “This was the same thing Amosun did in 2003 and heaped the blame on Aremo Olusegun Osoba”, he stressed.
The APC Spokesma said Violent uproars would also be sponsored in some local government councils and development areas with a plan to suspend their Chairmen who have been tagged as loyalists of Prince Dapo Abiodun.
He disclosed that Nine of these Chairmen have been removed from the Whatsapp group of the Ogun State Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON), while some of them already had their salaries and allowances put on hold, saying that their suspension have been held back because of the visit of Mr. President.
Oladunjoye stated while APC welcomes all supporters and members of the public to the rally, he reiterated that the rally is APC Rally and would also hold the security agencies to their publicly expressed promise to deal with anyone who attempted to cause disorder before, during and after the rally.
