A Non-Governmental Organisation, the Kaduna Coalition of Patriotic Citizens, on Thursday alerted the country to alleged plans by the All Progressives Congress to create tension in Kaduna State ahead of the 2015 general elections.
The group said it was concerned by the planned move by the APC to mobilize people from neighboring states under the guise of receiving one million defectors from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The group made this known in a statement by its chairman and secretary-general, Maliki Nuhu and Lazarus Ishiaku respectively.
The statement also called on security agencies to closely monitor the activities of the APC.
The group said, “As patriotic citizens of Kaduna State, we condemn the unpatriotic and selfish plot by the APC to destabilise the state through its plan to massively mobilise people from neighboring states in the name of receiving one million decampees from the PDP in the state.
“While we don’t hold brief for any political party, our concern is that such action by the APC could jeopardise the fragile peace that is presently being enjoyed in the state. The APC must desist from playing politics at all cost because such could create tension and threaten the security, law and order in Kaduna State.
“We have already observed how the opposition party is sponsoring commentators on radio and TV from other states to attack the state government, but such dangerous political game should not be shifted to physical movement of party loyalists and rented crowds to Kaduna in the name of a million man march”.
