APC’s list of trouble: I am not a member of APC, says Abel Oshevire


The public notice advertisement placed by the Delta state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Tuesday, August 1, 2017 edition of Vanguard has generated furore with Hon. Abel Oshevire, a former member of the Delta state House of Assembly listed as one of the APC chieftains to grace the planned party event denounced the invitation, saying that he belongs to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and never a member of APC.
Oshevire in a statement entitled “I am not a member of APC”, said decried the attitude of those behind the listing of his name in the APC advertorial alluding to him as an APC member, describing their action as “evil, wicked, and diabolical.”
The statement reads: “I wish to state categorically that I am scandalized by the recklessness exhibited by the All Progressive congress, APC, Delta State chapter, in alluding to me aas a member of the party, as contained on page 41 of the Vanguard newspaper of today. (1/8/20197).
“For emphasis, I hereby state that I remain a proud member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a party which provided me with the platform to become whatever I am today, politically.
“I consider the action of the APC in listing me among its members without my consent as evil, wicked and diabolical. I have never applied, nor sought to be a member of the APC.
“I am tempted to believe that the APC in Delta state is desperately and fraudulently listing names of people not associated with the party as members to deceive the public and give the impression of having some ‘big names in its fold.
“I wish to advise the APC to desist from such unholy act. It will be counter- productive because Deltans cannot be deceived by such antics to vote for them in the state. I am confident that Delta state will remain a PDP state for as long as democracy lasts in Nigeria.
“I hereby warn the leadership of the APC in Delta State that any such reckless and provocative act from them again will receive appropriate counter measure,” the statement concluded.
