- The All Progressives Congress (APC) warns the Action Alliance and Uche Nwosu not to come close to Buhari's campaign rally
- President Muhammadu Buhari will be in Imo state as part of his campaign rally ahead of the presidential election
- The APC notes that it does not have any arrangement with the AA on the platform on which Uche Nwosu will contest the governorship position
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reportedly warned the Action Alliance and its governorship candidate in Imo state, Uche Nwosu, not to come close to its campaign rallies as there is no arrangement with the duo.
The APC said this just as the Action Alliance said it was endorsing President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 16, 2019, election.
The president is expected at the rally on Tuesday, January 29, at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri.
Vanguard reports that the statement containing the warning was signed by Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the party’s national publicity secretary, insisting that it was not in any arrangement with the Action Alliance over the platform on which Nwosu will run for governor.
“The attention of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC has been drawn to alleged plans by non-APC members to cause crisis at the Tuesday, January 29, 2019, scheduled presidential rally of our great party, at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, in Owerri, Imo state.
“Information available to us revealed plans by particularly, the members of the Action Alliance (AA) to storm the venue to create mayhem as they seek to hijack the APC campaign to promote the troubled ambition of their governorship candidate, Uche Nwosu.
“You would recall that the AA governorship candidate recently held his govermorship rally at the same Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri, without APC members interfering or disturbing their programme.
“Therefore, we want to state very clearly that the scheduled rally is an APC rally and the party has no alliance with any political party and would not tolerate attempts by some persons under any guise to create chaotic atmosphere at the venue of our rally,” the statement said.
Legit.ng earlier reported that the Action Alliance (AA) recently re-emphasised that it has settled for President Buhari ahead of the February 16, 2019, presidential election thus leaving its earlier endorsement of Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
