RIVERS: APC criticize PDP for holding rally on day of mourning Attahiru, others

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has expressed shock over the decision of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State to organize a political event on a day of national mourning.

APC in a statement in Port Harcourt by its Spokesman, Chief Ogbonna Nwuke, noted that despite the sorrowful mood that the nation was thrown into as a result of the sudden death of the Chief of Army Staff and 10 other gallant officers, Governor Nyesom Wike allowed his team to engage in aimless politicking.

Nwuke said that the decision to televise such an event was an act of great disrespect for the nation’s fallen heroes who were buried the same day, Saturday.

He said: “The APC would have overlooked the charade which took place in the Rivers capital; an event which was broadcast on television; if the Wike administration did not create the impression, through a senseless jamboree, that the Rivers people are insensitive.
