Borno APC alleges plot to destabilise guber primaries


The All Progressives Congress, (APC) in Borno state yesterday raised the alarm, alleging that there is a plot by a group of politicians from the state to hire thugs from Kaduna state and bring them to Borno to stage-manage a protest in Maiduguri on Friday for the sole purpose of destabilizing the governorship primaries scheduled for Saturday.
State publicity secretary of the APC, Makinta Zarami said in a statement that the party had information that on Wednesday night, some representatives of the group held a meeting in Kaduna where it was agreed that a protest be stage-managed to attract the national leadership of the APC to create the false impression of popular opposition to indirect primaries already approved by the National Working Committee (NWC) for the conduct of the governorship primaries.
He said during the Kaduna meeting, some members of the group boasted of working in collaboration with someone at the national headquarters of the APC who promised to initiate controversies at an NWC meeting on the basis of the stage-managed protest.
The Borno APC also said even while the fake protest is being plotted against indirect primaries already adopted for Borno, the ultimate motive is to introduce a dubious register of APC members in the state as against an authentic register and membership cards from the national headquarters which were presented to state executives of the party
