“The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has not been factionalised or in the nature of crisis being repeatedly reported in a section of the media”
The ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) made the statement in a media release signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu on Monday as it condemned speculations making the round on the party’s internal crisis, as highly exaggerated and hasty.
“In a political organisation such as the APC, contestations are not unusual and are not necessarily intractable.”
“The issues being alluded to in the media reports are matters before the courts and should be allowed to run their normal and legal course.
“The exaggerated story foreboding armageddon is far-fetched.
“We call on members of the National Working Committee (NWC) and the Party’s secretariat staff to resume at their offices and continue carrying out their scheduled roles and responsibilities without any fear.
“Finally, we thank the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Abubakar Adamu, personnel of the Police, Department of State Services and other Security Services for their professionalism in the process of maintaining the peace and preventing hoodlums from formenting trouble at the APC National Secretariat.
“We assure all our members in Nigeria and across the world that our leaders are capable of resolving any contestations that may arise bearing in mind the best interests of our great party and in the pursuit of progress and development of our country. The statement reads.
