The Grassroots Development Initiative (GDI) said on Monday that there was no plan by the organisation to frustrate the ongoing All Progressive Congress, APC, membership registration in Rivers.
Mr Bright Amewhule, the President-General of the organisation, made the clarification in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt.
He said that the mission of GDI was to promote and protect the tenets of democracy, adding that violence and thuggery were not part of the philosophy of the organisation.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that APC in Rivers had accused both PDP and GDI for attacking its members, with a view to disrupting the ongoing membership registration in the state.
GDI is a Port Harcourt-based socio- political organisation founded by the supervising Minister of Education, Chief Nyesom Wike.
Describing both PDP and GDI as responsible organisations, Amewhule said that the duo would never be involved in irresponsible and dirty politics.
He said PDP and GDI had never been at any meeting aimed at disrupting the ongoing APC membership registration in the state. (NAN)
