The national leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has warned the Action Alliance, AA, as well as its governorship candidate in Imo State, Uche Nwosu, to steer clear of its planned presidential rally on Tuesday at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri.
President Muhammadu Buhari, who is currently in Aba, Abia State, will move his campaign to Owerri, the Imo State capital, where he is expected to address the party’s supporters.
This was contained in a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, on Tuesday.
The ruling party said it was not into any arrangement with the Action Alliance, on which platform Nwosu is running for the governorship of the state.
The statement reads, “The attention of the National Working Committee, NWC, of the APC has been drawn to alleged plans by non- APC members to cause crisis at the Tuesday, January 29, 2019 scheduled Presidential rally of our great party, at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, in Owerri, Imo State.
“Information available to us revealed plans by particularly, the members of the Action Alliance, AA, to storm the venue to create mayhem as they seek to hijack the APC campaign to promote the troubled ambition of their governorship candidate, Uche Nwosu.
“You would recall that the AA governorship candidate recently held his governorship rally at the same Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri, without APC members interfering or disturbing their programme.
“Therefore, we want to state very clearly that the scheduled rally is an APC rally and the party has no alliance with any political party and would not tolerate attempts by some persons under any guise to create a chaotic atmosphere at the venue of our rally.”
