The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in River State on Wednesday accused the state governor, Nyesom Wike, and a former federal lawmaker, Magnus Abe, of plotting to destabilise the party in the state.
Abe, who is a former Senator representing Rivers South-East Senatorial District had been at loggerhead with the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, over the control of the APC machinery in River State since 2019.
The crisis caused the party the 2019 governorship election in the state.
The APC spokesman Rivers, Chief Ogbonna Nwuke, who disclosed this in a statement to Ripples Nigeria on Wednesday, said the party leadership had uncovered plots by Wike, Abe and some external collaborators to manipulate the judiciary by filing spurious cases in court to destabilise the party in the state.
According to him, the duo had perfected plans to undermine the stability of the party before the courts proceed on break.
