The All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to call its Bayelsa state scribe to order and stop fabricating lies against it leaders which are capable of throwing the state into anarchy.
The APC also called on the security agencies to note the lies being peddling by one Godspower Keku, identified as the Bayelsa state PDP Secretary.
The APC’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary Mr. Yekini Nabena, said the caution becomes necessary because of some unguarded statements capable of inflaming tensions in the state by the PDP following the Supreme Court decisions on the Bayelsa State Governorship.
Nabena was reacting to “unprovoked attacks” on the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva and the APC national leadership by the PDP Bayelsa State Secretary, Godspower Keku following the Apex Court decision on Bayelsa Governorship Review.
The said PDP Bayelsa scribe had made some accusations against the Minister of Petroleum and the national chairman of APC regarding the emergence of David Lyon and Degi.
But reacting to Keku’s claims while speaking to newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday, the Bayelsa-born APC chieftain described the media reports credited to PDP’s state scribe as ‘all fabrications to cause disaffection not only in the APC fold but in Bayelsa state.’
The APC spokesman called on leaders of thought to call the said Keku to order.
“I read the unprovoked and unwarranted attacks by one Godspower Keku, purported Bayelsa State Secretary of the PDP on the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva and the APC national leadership in which Chief Sylva was particularly hurled several concocted and mischievous allegations.
“As law abiding people, we have accepted the decisions of the Supreme Court on the Bayelsa Governorship in good faith. However, I strongly urge the PDP in Bayelsa State not to take for granted the 352,552 electorate who voted overwhelmingly for their governorship choice by making insensitive and infuriating statements.
“Perhaps, the PDP in Bayelsa is out of tune with the current state government and needs to be called to order. In the interest of peace and the development of Bayelsa, we have appealed to our supporters and members to be peaceful and accept the ruling. The Bayelsa PDP’s attempt to stir the hornets nest and further infuriate Bayelsans is ill thought, careless and reckless.”
