”Yesterday a tipper load of freshly made brooms arrived from Ikot Ekpene to the residence of a PDP Chieftain in Akpa Ube, Aka Offot community in Uyo Local Government. A mountain-like heap of the broom is to be set on fire to illustrate the “demise” of APC in the state.

He urged APC members and the public to be wary of the antics of the PDP government in the state to cause confusion in the party.

”The APC hereby wishes to put its members and the general public on notice of this act of desperation by a party/government that has failed in all ramifications to deliver on its promises and expectations of the people.


”We advise our party men and women sympathetic to the misdirection offered by the leadership of ADF not to allow themselves to be led astray but to remain resolute with the party, unwavering in their support and believe in the leadership of the party and the prospects it offers to deliver Akwa Ibom from the current misgovernance of the PDP”, it added.

When contacted the State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr Boronno Bassey said the party would issue a rejoinder to the APC allegations soon.
