08:14 Feb 17 2015 Buguma, Asari-Toru, Rivers, Nigeria

Description
As part of the strategy of keeping party faithfuls and loyalists. The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Rivers State extended their party structure by creating a 10-man executive at each polling unit in the state. These executives were paid stipend tagged "SURE-P", "GoTV" and other names. On Tuesday, 17th February 2014, the APC paid to their Unit executives at the Asari-Toru Council Secretariat. Each unit executive member was paid N10,000. Most persons whose names were earlier submitted as unit executives trooped to the council secretariat, the venue of the payment exercise only to discover that they have been replaced. This infuriated them and made some attack their ward executives for changing their names. It took the effort of the JTF stationed at the secretariat to calm the situation and disperse the crowd.
