The All Progressives Congress (APC), Abia chapter, has alleged that there are plans to disrupt President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the state on Tuesday (Today).
Buhari is scheduled to commission the 9.5MW Independent Power Plant, at Ariaria Market in Osisioma Ngwa council area and also attend the APC rally at the Enyimba Stadium.
However, the party’s Publicity Secretary, Comrade Benedict Godson, in a statement on Tuesday morning, said security agencies had been placed on red alert, to deal decisively with anyone or groups trying to foment trouble during the APC presidential campaign.
He said, “We have discovered a plan by the present Abia state government to hire their agents, thugs to disrupt the APC presidential campaign rally taking place in Aba today.
“We want to state here that, we are ready to deal decisively to anybody or groups commissioned by the ruling government to cause havoc at the venue of our campaign rally.
“We are assuring Abians, Aba residents and our visitors of adequate security. No amount of evil plans by the opponents will deter the quest of Abia people to enthrone good governance come March 2nd, 2019 general elections.
“We are poised and undeterred to change the narratives in Abia. Because, the people of the state have suffered under the PDP-led administrations and they are yearning for change.
“And that change, is what APC has come to bring in Abia,through the divine governorship candidature of Dr. Uchechukwu Ogah”.
