Politics Lai Mohammed Claims APC Delegates Received Bomb Threats at Convention Ground



The All Progressives Congress, APC has issued a statement thanking Nigerians for their congratulatory messages and words of encouragement, following the party's hugely successful inaugural national convention in Abuja.

In parts of the statement, Lai Mohammed, National Publicity secretary of the APC hinted that delegates got a threatening text messages about an impending bomb attack at the convention venue.

"We are encouraged and gratified by the goodwill messages from a cross section of Nigerians, many of them from outside our party, especially on the openness and transparency of our convention,'' the party said in the statement issued in Lagos on Sunday.

"This massive support from Nigerians has strengthened our resolve to continue with our efforts to move our country forward. Now, we are back to work and we will not look back until Nigeria has been rescued from the grip of a rapacious cabal intent on stifling the country's progress.

"When the entire public address system succumbed to the rains, our members moved from one state delegation to another to mobilize then to vote. When the rain started, they were more interested in protecting the ballot boxes than shielding themselves from the rain.

''It is also noteworthy that no cases of violence and pick-pocketing were recorded despite the massive turnout at the Eagle Square for the convention. Not even the threatening text messages sent to the phones of many delegates at the convention, over a purported impending bomb attack, could shake their resolve. There can be no better testament to commitment to a cause, the cause of rescuing Nigeria, than this,'' the party said.

APC assured Nigerians that in the days ahead, the party will be providing more details of its Road Map that will lead it to the creation of a new and prosperous Nigeria for the benefit of all her people. It said the achievements of all the Governors in the 16 states controlled by the APC will also be showcased to Nigerians, as part of efforts to make them realize that with the emergence of the APC, it will no longer be business as usual.

The party repeated its call on the PDP-led federal government to do everything humanly possible to secure the release of the over 200 school girls who were abducted by Boko Haram on April 14th 2014.
