APC debunks Buni’s sack, says report fake, imaginary

The All Progressives Congress (APC), has described as fake and imaginary, the report in some sections of the media (NewsWireNGR not included), of a purported leadership change in the party.

Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, the National Secretary, APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), said this in a statement on Monday in Abuja, in a reaction to the report.

“Our attention has been drawn to sponsored media reports of an imaginary leadership change in the APC CECPC. The media report is fake news and should be disregarded.

“The APC is a progressive political party guided by rules. Leadership changes are not announced by ‘sources’ through name dropping in the media,” Akpankudohede said.

 He, therefore urged the party’s teeming supporters, members and the general public, to remain calm.

The APC stalwart also asked members of the party to continue to support the Gov. Mai Mala Buni-led APC CECPC, to conduct a rancour-free and credible National Convention, deserving of the party.

The APC National Convention has been slated for March 26, to elect new national executives of the party, currently being managed by the CECPC.

A section of the media had at the weekend reported that President Muhammad Buhari had sacked Buni as the Chairman of the APC CECPC and appointed Gov. Sani Bello of Niger, as sole administrator of the party.
