Delta State All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday debunked news making the round that its stakehokders’ meeting which was held at Asaba last Wednesday was marred with violence.
In an statement issued by the party’s Director of Publicity, Mr Nick Ovuakporie on Friday and made available to CAPITAL POST, said the reported violence in some media organisations involving party chieftains sustaining injuries was nothing short of fake news peddled by mischief makers.
“This is wholly false. It is the fakest news of the century and a futile attempt by mischief-makers to use non-existent problems to taint our great party and its leaders.
“We note with sadness, pity, and grave concern that Chief Great Ogboru’s name is featuring prominently in this needless mischief to taint our party and smear its leaders.
“Yes, few fringe mischief-makers planned an attack on the stakeholders meeting but chickened out in the end. They may have realised that their plan would have consumed them either instantly or by the operation of law.”
The party in the statement admitted having pockets of attack which it likened to a coup which the party members and.security operatives foiled.
“It was therefore a failed coup. A coup foiled from within due to fear of consequences and by both vigilant APC members and security operatives.
“By the spurious media stories, although the fringe mischief-makers did not even dare to carry out their wishful thinking on unleashing violence on participants at the meeting, they nevertheless somehow feel that they could still achieve their sinister agenda to taint the party by planting fake news and outright lies in the media.
Their case is so worthless that they tried in vain to use an alleged private disagreement that occurred very far from the venue of the meeting to justify their bogus claim. That is sad and utterly disingenuous. It will not fly.”
