Former Abia State Deputy Governor, Dr. Chris Akomas, yesterday denied engaging in any form of anti-party activity as reported in a section of the media.
Akomas, a member of the Board of Trustees of the All Progressives Congress, APC, was reported to have been part of the meeting held in Bayelsa State on Tuesday by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governors, where they claimed that Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari is sliding into dictatorship.
However, his media aide, Benjamin Ovie, in statement made available to Nigerian Pilot in Abuja, described the report as entirely false, misleading, and should be disregarded in its entirety.
Part of the statement reads: “The Comrade who is a member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Board of Trustees, was never part of the meeting. At no time has he been a member of the PDP. He served as the Abia State deputy governor under the People’s Progressive Alliance, PPA, and resigned on July 30, 2010, about six years ago.”
However, the Publicity Secretary of the Abia State chapter of the party, Ben Godson, explained that as at the time of the meeting of the PDP governors in Bayelsa, Akomas was attending a meeting of the APC South-East leaders in Abuja and as such it is impossible for him to attend a meeting in Abuja and still be at the PDP meeting at the same time,” he said.
