The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has dissociated itself from a petition to President Muhammadu Buhari against Barrister Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan.
In a Press statement released on Wednesday in Abuja, the opposition Coalition Spokesman, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, distanced the leadership of the CUPP from the said letter saying it was not authored or signed by the spokesman or the Secretary of the Coalition, High Chief Peter Ameh.
The spokesman asked the public to ignore the said letter, saying agents of Kogi State All Progressives Congress (APC) are desperate to tarnish the reputation of Kogi Central Senatorial Candidate, Chief Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan.
The statement read in part;
‘’The attention of the spokesman of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has been drawn to a letter purportedly written by the Coalition to President Muhammadu Buhari against Barrister Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan wherein claims were made that she imported Niger Delta militants to Okene during a rally which she organized.
“I wish to dissociate myself and the leadership of the CUPP from the said letter which was not authored or signed by my humble self or the Secretary of the Coalition High Chief Peter Ameh.
“Agents of APC desperate to tarnish the reputation of Mrs Akpoti-Uduaghan having seen that the people of Kogi Central have endorsed her as the next person to represent them as Senator in the National Assembly and should desist from doing anything to undermine her legitimate quest.”
Calling on the authorities to disregard the said letter, the spokesman urged the senatorial candidate for Kogi central senatorial district to go about her campaigns.
“I hereby call that the letter be disregarded by the authorities that it was addressed to.
“The opposition coalition hereby calls on Mrs Natasha Akpoti Uduaghan to go about her campaign and ignore the shenanigans of her opponents who are already staring defeat in the face and not allow her focus to be shifted from the ball.”
CUPP’s statement is a response to a letter in circulation dated 30th January 2023.
