The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Akwa Ibom State, has reacted to the report that its members destroyed the billboards of President Muhammadu Buhari in the state.
The party also alleged that the All Progressives Congress, APC, was using the police to harass their members.
In a series of tweets on its official tweeter handle, the PDP claimed that the APC was already faced with the certainty of its defeat in the coming election.
The party wrote, “Faced with all but certain defeat both at the State & the National level, the @OfficialAPCNg in Akwa Ibom State has resorted to deploying sick and morally revolting propaganda, concocted lies, arrest and harassment of innocent citizens of the state.
“The latest in their arsenal of lies is a petition by @OfficialAPCNg State Chairman, Ime Okopido, alleging that @aksgovt, through the Hon. Commissioner of Environment, Dr. Iniobiong Essien, ordered the destruction of @MBuhari’s billboard in the state #policeharassmentinakwaIbom
“An action that the @PoliceNG IGP deployed a Special Squad to Uyo, to harass and arrest Dr. Essien, the state Commissioner for Environment. Truth is, there are no campaign billboards of President @mBuhari in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State. #policeharassmentinakwaIbom
“We call on the good people of Akwa Ibom state to remain calm in spite of this extreme provocation. We equally call on the IG of @PoliceNG and the @OfficialAPCNg led FG to stop harassing citizens of this great country. Nigeria belongs to all of us.”
