Party says rumours are from detractors.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, has said there is no truth to the rumours that the party’s congress, starting nationwide on Saturday, has been postponed.
In a statement issued in London, England, on Saturday, its interim National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, said the congress is going on as planned nationwide.
“We urge our members to ignore the wild rumours on the postponement of the congress, which is another attempt by the enemies of democracy to sabotage the party’s monumental progress,” it said
Meanwhile, APC has disowned one Emi Abata who is parading himself as the Chairman of the APC in Lagos State
The party said since the process that will culminate in the election of the party’s leaders at the various levels has just begun today with the ward congress, no one can claim to have been elected a leader at any level
“In any case, the state congress is not due to be held until April 23rd, after which our elected state officials will emerge. How then can anyone claim to be the Chairman of our party in Lagos ? This is absurd and clearly orchestrated,” the APC said.
