The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu State said on Friday that it has uncovered plans by the ruling Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) to use few suspended members of the party to cause major division in the party.

APC added that the plans, if not checked, might lead to likely threat to peace in the state, calling on security agencies to act quickly to forestall breakdown of law and order.

The State APC Chairman, Dr. Ben Nwoye told newsmen in Enugu that PDP, "having seen that it was no longer popular in the state with what happened in the November 4 local council polls, has been going about, picking people who are no longer in APC to organise a mega-rally in Awgu town, purportedly on behalf of the party.

According to him, PDP has seen that it has been decimated in the state with the recent defection of its immediate past secretary, Steve Oruruo to APC, and was ready to do anything to stem the tide of change blowing in the state.

Nwoye said the quartet of A. C. Ude, Louis Okoro, Lolo Queen Nwankwo and Juliet Ibekaku, who were being linked with the mega-rally were on suspension and awaiting their possible expulsion from the party.

The APC Chairman called on members of the public, particularly the security agencies, to beware of the antics of the quartet, who are being used as agents to destabilise APC following the release of the timetable for the 2019 elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

“We are calling on the Police, the Nigerian Army, the Department of State Security, the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps and others, to act quickly to forestall any breach of peace in the state as a result of the actions of these elements,” Nwoye said.

He made it clear that no faction exists in the state APC, pointing out that commission of criminal act does not amount to factionalisation of a party.

Nwoye said he was worried that somebody who broke into the party secretariat and carted away some documents has been going about, parading himself as Acting State Chairman of APC, with the support of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the security agencies allowed him, even when the APC National Secretariat had forwarded a letter to him to desist from doing so.

The APC helmsman however made it clear that the antics of these elements would not deter the party in its quest to bring change to the sate, pointing out that unlike the local government elections, conducted by the PDP sponsored the state Independent Electoral Commission (ENSIEC), there would be no writing of result in 2019 with INEC as the umpire.

Efforts made by News Express to speak with the PDP Chairman, Augustine Nnamani or his Secretary, Cletus Akalusi, proved abortive as at press time, even as Ude and his co-organisers of the purported APC mega-rally could also not be reached.
