Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, has dismissed claims in some quarters that the All Progressives Congress is an Islamic party.
Describing those spreading the rumour that the APC is an Islamic party as mischief makers, Amaechi insisted that the party had no intention to Islamise Nigeria should it win the 2015 presidential election.
The governor, who spoke on Wednesday during an interactive session with students at the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education in Port Harcourt, also described the APC as a party for progressives.
He stated that the APC presidential aspirant was not behind the rumour that the party planned to islamise the country, adding that the APC means well for Nigerians and the development of the nation.
