The National Secretary, Caretaker Committee of APC, Senator James Akpanudoedehe, has responded to allegations by Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike that he committed anti-party activities in the 2019 general election.

Wike had alleged that Akpanudoedehe voted for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against his own party in the polls.

Akpanudoedehe said that the Rivers governor was trying to blackmail him, insisting that he would not join issues with him.

He queried how Wike got to know for whom he voted.

“This is cheap blackmail. This blackmail is no longer fashionable in politics. What we preach and practice in APC is politics of issues and substance and not cheap blackmail.

“I am a man of issues. I am a man of substance. I don’t join issues on blackmail. Wike can say anything. But ask him how he got to know whom I voted for in 2019. Was he in Akwa Ibom or he is a spirit that knows the party I voted for?

“The narrative of voting for another party cannot hold water. This storyline of blackmail is no longer in vogue.

“Where was Wike in 1999 when I was in the Senate? Is it because he is now a governor that he thinks he can hit national limelight by insulting APC Leaders? He should be matured and respect his exalted office and stop the blackmail game,” Akpanudoedehe told Vanguard.
