The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied involvement in the alleged fake video announcing the withdrawal of Senator Samuel Anyanwu, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Imo State governorship candidate.
In a statement by its spokesman, Felix Morka, the APC accused the PDP of “crass irresponsibility” and labelled their call for the disqualification of Governor Hope Uzodinma as unfounded.
In a strongly worded response, the APC asserted that neither Governor Uzodinma nor the party had any hand in creating or procuring the alleged viral video.
The party emphasizes that it has been actively campaigning to persuade the Imo electorate to renew its mandate.
“To be crystal clear, neither Governor Uzodinma nor our great party had any hand in making or procuring the making of that video. Our Governor and Party have been hard at work campaigning to persuade the good Imo electorate to renew our mandate to have any interest or time for such piece of frivolous and unhelpful propaganda.
“At the end of any credible investigation into the video’s origins, we will not be shocked to discover that it was a malicious creation of the PDP in a calculated but futile attempt to smear Governor Uzodinma and our Party, exactly as this baseless and senseless allegation sought to do.
“Clearly, the unmatched track record and popularity of our candidate makes the PDP quiver in desperate panic. We are confident that no last minute antics of the PDP will deter the good people of Imo State who are poised to reelect our Governor to finish the good work he has started,” the party said.
