Plateau APC Denies Rift Between Guber Candidate, Working Committee

All Progressives Congress (APC) in Plateau State has denied claims of a rift between its Gubernatorial candidate Dr Nentawe Yilwatda and the Party's state working committee.

A statement signed by APC State Publicity Secretary Sylvanus Namang, in Plateau on Thursday and made available to newsmen in Jos stated, this to be false and misleading.

The statement reads, "according to the carefully crafted statement, the APC candidate has abandoned and frustrated the party machinery and even went to the ridiculous extent of accusing him of addressing the state Chairman as incompetent during his different consultations.

"It also alleged that Dr Nentawe has turned the party in the state into a one-man-show and has promised to dissolve the legally elected Local Government Councils and the State Working Committee of the party when elected among sundry other weird allegations. 

"The All Progressives Congress in the state hereby unequivocally and in no uncertain terms dismisses the allegations as a figment of imagination which exist only in the realms of its propagators who are clear agents of disunity and hatred for the APC. 

"The APC is, however, not surprised about this development as the incontrovertible emergence of Dr Nentawe Goshwe as the party's gubernatorial candidate since June last year has unsettled the opposition and those who believe that Plateau State begins and ends with them.

"His revolutionary, captivating and apt choice of GenerationNext and the ACEES programme which bother on the future of the youth and a new Plateau State has created great discomfort for people  who believe in the old ways of doing things."

"This explains why several efforts have been made to scuttle his candidacy with multiple court cases which have collapsed like pack of cards.

These orchestrated and ridiculous challenges have gone to the extreme of resurrecting a court case by some willing agents and stooges of these disgruntled elements more than a year after a duly agreed out-of-court settlement which the complainants on their own volition withdrew the case in court but have now surprisingly gone on to the  Appeal Court which is a clear distraction.

The APC in the State is fully aware of the insidious plans by the opposition and those who do not wish the APC and Plateau State well to destabilise the candidate and the party up to the general elections. 

Let us assure all and sundry that there is no stopping the youthful winning team of Dr Nentawe Yilwatda and Hon. Pam Bot Mang by God's grace.
