APC in dubious schemes to hoodwink Imo people
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State wishes to alert members of the public to the dubious schemes by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State to hoodwink and lure the unsuspecting public to register with their party.
Regrettably, part of their shameful strategy, having been convinced that the people have rejected them nationwide due to its failure in all indices of governance, is to induce and deceive the good people of the State with such blatant lies as; “there is ongoing census exercise, INEC registration and empowerment programs.”
The APC is also desperate to procure members at all cost with such false claims as, “the exercise will be used for the payment of unemployment benefits, sharing of proceeds from Abacha loot, and crediting of accounts of Nigerians under federal government’s empowerment programs.”
These are all blatant lies! Absolute falsehood! APC are known liars!
The PDP, therefore, wishes to use this medium to make it categorically clear that:
1. There is no census going on in Nigeria or Imo State. INEC is not conducting any registration exercise anywhere. There are no empowerment benefit plans. There are no plans to credit bank accounts of Nigerians. Please do not be deceived.
2. PDP is not carrying out membership registration and revalidation exercise yet. If and when the PDP starts membership registration and revalidation exercise, Party leaders and members will be duly informed.
3. Registration in a political party is not by force. There is freedom of choice and association. PDP members and indeed the general public in Imo State should not succumb to any pressure or force by anybody to register with APC against their wishes.
4. APC is hereby warned to desist from using falsehood and propaganda to force citizens to register with it. The Party cannot force itself on the people.
The people of Imo State are enjoined to be alert to these desperate devices and be properly guided. Power to the People!
