The All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked Nigerians to disregard media reports claiming the ruling party has suspended its national convention slated for February.
Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, the National Secretary of APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), made this known in a statement issued on Wednesday.
Akpanudoedehe said priority of the party was to address the fallout of recently conducted congresses and litigations against the party.
He noted that the faceless authors and sponsors of fake news on the ruling party activities, especially the planned National Convention are simply bent on causing confusion and fomenting crisis through misinformation.
”We should not enable them he said.
According to him: “The general public is advised to completely disregard fake news on the reported suspension of the planned National Convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) till June, as reported by some media outlets.”
The party disclosed the Caretaker Committee was already embarking on nationwide consultations with party stakeholders to prepare the ground for a rancour-free National Convention.
He added: “Finally, the party notes and appreciates the continued support of well-meaning members and leaders as the APC Caretaker Committee undertakes the immediate task of addressing contestations within the party, litigations, fallouts of recently-conducted Congresses and generally reposition the party ahead of the National Convention.”
