The rebuttal was contained in a statement issued by its National Secretary
APC CECPC, Sen. John James Akpanudoedehe.
According to the statement, the report is “fake news and should be disregarded.”
It reads briefly, “Our attention has been drawn to sponsored media reports on an imaginary leadership change in the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC).”
It also said the APC is a progressive political party guided by rules.
The statement further added that leadership changes are not announced by ‘sources’ through name dropping in the media.
It called on members of the ruling party and the public to remain calm and support the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC CECPC conduct a rancour-free and credible National Convention deserving of the party.
