NGF Crisis: PDP Youth Vanguard Alleges Plot To Frame Akpabio

gov_akpabio-1The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Youth Vanguard has uncovered fresh plots aimed at causing disaffection between the chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum (PDPGF), Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State and President Goodluck Jonathan.

The group claimed that elements behind the attempt had resorted to fabricating false stories about the Forum and its chairman, over the roles they played in the recent Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) election.

In a release signed by the president of the PDPYV, Musa  Elaho and made available to newsmen in Abuja, “information within the reach of the party revealed that the first step of the scheme to discredit Akpabio and cause a friction between him and the president was taken through the sponsorship of a media report that the Akwa Ibom State governor bungled the peace effort with Governor Rotimi Amaechi, prior to the NGF election, with others bound to follow in the coming days.”

“Contrary to the tissue of lies weaved together to deceive Nigerians that Akpabio bungled the peace effort and was nearly thrown out by the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT) chairman, Chief Tony Anenih, the PDPGF chairman took steps that pleased the party before and after the election and he and Chief Anenih have enjoyed a good working relationship that will lead the party and the country to greater heights.”

The group also said contrary to the insinuations contained in the report, the PDPGF was neither created to rival the NGF nor to ensure that Amaechi did not win re-election as chairman.

While discrediting the media publication, the group said it had exposed the scheme as a sponsored attempt to destroy the cordial relationship between Akpabio and President Jonathan.
