ACN alleges plot to scuttle national convention

About 32 hours to the National Convention of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), the party’s chairman in Cross River State, Mr Hilliard Eta, has alleged a plot by a group to frustrate the participation of delegates from his state at the gathering scheduled to hold in Lagos.

Eta said: “We have uncovered an orchestrated plot by an unscrupulous group parading as ACN members, but who were unfortunately mobilised and sponsored by a chieftain and major financier of the party to thwart arrangements and subsequent participation by real party delegates at the April 18th National Convention to be held in Lagos.

“Apart from the plot to attack the delegates at the point of departure to Lagos, the group is also plotting to storm the Lagos convention ground with miscreants to carry placards and protest their alleged non-inclusion as delegates for the national convention.

“These same persons had penultimate week stormed our State Working Committee (SWC) meeting in Calabar where one of them, Mr. Francis Ekpenyong, led in the efforts to scuttle the outcome of the meeting.”

He said the plot “emanated from the incongruous ambition of their sponsor in a bid to position himself for the next governorship election in the state.”

Eta said: “Such effort is a wild goose chase that will continue to end in futility.”

The chairman, however, urged perpetrators of such plan to desist in the interest of peace.
