The Obudu Chapter Chairman of the All Progressive Congress APC, Mr. Moses Utsu, has described as “unfair” the treatment of APC members in the just concluded Obudu bye-election that produced Hon. Abbey Ukpukpen as winner.
He made the accusation while speaking to CrossRiverWatch in an exclusive interview, where he averred that “PDP was directly responsible for the uprising that took place during the exercise.”
Mr. Moses who shared some of his experience revealed that “The APC candidate and the APC members were being battered by the powers that be, we could not go out for campaign. They used the Police to chase us out of town, they used the thugs to chase us out of town, they used other means to make sure that we did not come out for our election.
“I will accuse PDP directly as a party, whoever is the head of the party, I don’t know where the directive came from whether the head of the party or whoever but I think it wasn’t too fair.” He said.
Highlighting his party plans for the State if given the opportunity to govern, Mr. Moses said, “We learn from the mistakes of others, the arrogance of PDP is too much that’s why we talk about change in APC.”
Concluding he urged Cross Riverians to “be law abiding, ensure you go out and vote during the forth-coming election, as it is one man, one vote.”
