The All Progressives Congress, APC has reacted to allegations that the recent redeployment of Police Commissioners was aimed at ‘rigging’ the 2019 general elections, PoliticsNGR has learned.

National
Publicity Secretary of the party, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu in a statement
in Abuja on Wednesday described the allegations as ‘laughable’.

He
said, “A nebulous group which parades itself as the CUPP has made some
laughable allegations on some police postings, particularly in Kwara
State ahead of the forthcoming general elections.

Ordinarily, the
APC would not respond to a group of charlatans running errands for the
embattled President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki.

However, since the group has issued the statement as a decoy for him, we would direct our reactions to their paymaster.”

Issa-Onilu
reiterated that the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, and indeed
other senior party leaders mentioned in the statement were too busy
with the party’s presidential campaigns.

He stressed that the APC
leadership was too busy with campaigns than to be involved in the
childish conspiracies and spurious allegations contained in the
statement.

Issa-Onilu, however, said that it was not within the
rights or responsibility of any political organisation or group to
dictate to agencies empowered by laws how to deliver on specific
mandates.

The APC spokesman added that the party believed that
leaders with a modicum of honour, should not tread on the path of
cowardice by hiding under nebulous groups to make unsubstantiated
allegations. He said that the PDP is now scared of its own shadows.

“Let it be known that our party, the APC, has not copied such dubious template from the PDP,” Issa-Onilu said.

He
reiterated that “a new and progressive Kwara State beckons through the
votes of the people,” adding that the Kwara electorate would decide on
the new political direction in the state.

“Kwara State has
suffered enough backwardness and underdevelopment resulting from the
selfish grip of a self-appointed leader in the state.

“In the next election, the will of the Kwara electorate will prevail,” Issa-Onilu said.
