APC reveals sponsors of protest at Justice Odili's residence

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the protest purportedly staged by its supporters at the residence of Justice Mary Odili, a justice of the Supreme Court.

Justice Odili gave the Supreme Court's verdict which sacked APC's David Lyon as the governor-elect of Bayelsa state. Following the verdict, a protest linked to APC supporters was staged at the residence of the revered judge in Abuja. However, The Nation reports that APC deputy national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena, has dissociated his party and its supporters from the protest. It was gathered that Nabena on Tuesday, February 18, accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and one of its governors of being responsible for the protest. The deputy APC spokesperson claimed the PDP sponsored the protest in order to paint his party and its supporters in a bad light. He added that it was the PDP that has been protesting against the judiciary by marching from one embassy to another. Nabena also urged the judiciary to remain upright and always ensures the will of the people and rule of law prevail. He also tackled the Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike, whom he described as the main financier of the PDP. Nabena asked the Rivers state governor to explain his interest in the Bayelsa governorship election just as he tasked the people of his state to ask him how he spends their money. He added that the leadership of the APC has called on the party's supporters not to engage in violence as all legal avenues to reclaim the mandate are already being considered.
