The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised the alarm over alleged plots by opposition governors to use the media to discredit the chairman of PDP Governors’ Forum, Governor Godswill Akpabio, and cause disunity among the PDP governors.
PDP also said that the governors of the party were absolute in their support for Akpabio as the chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum.
A statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Olisa Metuh, said PDP had uncovered a grand plot by the opposition to use the media to cause disunity in the PDP Governors’ Forum as well as discredit the chairman of the Forum, Governor Godswill Akpabio.
“Our investigations revealed that the opposition, in their desperation to deceive Nigerians, have recruited political mercenaries who are heavily paid as hatchet men to fabricate and plant spurious and malicious reports in the media to stigmatise Akpabio and the PDP and taint them before Nigerians.
“These spin doctors have continued to portray Akpabio’s genuine benevolence and kind heartedness in bad light, all in a desperate attempt to disparage him and cause a division in the PDP Governors’ Forum.
“For the avoidance of doubt, all the governors of the PDP are united and there is no division in the PDP Governor’ Forum,” the statement said PDP also said that the party was in absolute support of the actions and activities of Akpabio, maintaining that “the leadership of the PDP completely identifies with Governor Akpabio and his landmark developmental projects with which he has brought uncommon transformation to Akwa-Ibom state.”
JD:Complete hogwash.Akpabio has shot himself in the foot by his inconventional behaviour which is totally unacceptable in any sane society.THE MAN NEEDS HELP!Unfortunately however since he still seems to have an endless deep pocket with funds to throw around,its not likely to come his way soon from those close to him.When you hear statements that say that the party leadership believes Akpabio is being potrayed in bad light because of his “genuine benevolence and kind heartedness”,then we know we have a herculean task ahead.but akpabio should remember,when judgement day comes,he will be standing alone and even his newly acquired in law TU FACE,will run for cover .
