The All Progressives Congress has accused the Peoples Democratic Party of coming up with last-minute antics to sabotage the chances of their candidate, Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, at the Saturday polls.
The ruling party made the accusation while reacting to a viral video purporting the PDP candidate, Samuel Anyanwu, has stepped down for the incumbent governor.
Speaking via a statement by its spokesman, Felix Morka, on Friday, APC insisted that they have no hand in the viral video.
Morka noted that the party have been preoccupied with the upcoming polls and has no time to indulge in frivolous propaganda.
He said; “To be crystal clear, neither Governor Uzodinma nor our great Party had any hand in making or procuring the making of that video. Our Governor and Party have been hard at work campaigning to persuade the good Imo electorate to renew our mandate to have any interest or time for such piece of frivolous and unhelpful propaganda.
“At the end of any credible investigation into the video’s origins, we will not be shocked to discover that it was a malicious creation of the PDP in a calculated but futile attempt to smear Governor Uzodinma and our Party, exactly as this baseless and senseless allegation sought to do.
“Clearly, the unmatched track record and popularity of our candidate makes the PDP quiver in desperate panic. We are confident that no last-minute antics of the PDP will deter the good people of Imo State who are poised to reelect our Governor to finish the good work he has started”.
