The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of sponsoring and encouraging the End SARS protests through unguarded assertions on social media.
The APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena, who made the accusation in a statement on Wednesday, further stated that PDP was also playing politics with the protests.
He maintained that the APC would not join issues with PDP on the development which the #EndSARS protests had taken.
According to him, the party would give record of how the opposition leaders were directly and indirectly sponsoring the protests and playing politics with the situation.
“It is on record that one of the leaders of #EndSARS protest in Akwa Ibom State, three days ago publicly admitted that the state governor, Udom Emmanuel, gave N4 million for onward sharing to the protesting youth in Uyo.
“Kufre Carter, one of the organisers of the protests, reportedly said he got a call from the governor’s aide on youth matters whom he said told him that the governor gave N4 million to be shared to the protesters.” NAN quoted him as saying.
He said that the APC Caretaker Committee chairman, Gov. Mai Mala Buni of Yobe, had noted the hidden agenda in the End SARS protest.
Nabena urged the protesting youth to give dialogue and peace a chance while ignoring insensitive fueling by the opposition parties.
