Written by News Room on January 13, 2022
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged the general public to completely disregard fake news on the reported suspension of the planned national convention of the party.
Emerging reports by certain media outlets suggest that the convention, which is slated for February, has been moved to now hold in June.
APC spokesman, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, in a statement on Wednesday said the dates for party activities such as meetings, primaries, congresses, national conventions are communicated through well-known official channels and not through ‘sources’, saying the faceless authors and sponsors of fake news on APC activities are simply bent on causing confusion and fomenting crisis through misinformation.
According Akpanudoedehe, as a focus-driven, process-oriented political party, the APC Caretaker Committee under the leadership of Governor Mai Mala Buni will not be distracted by self-serving antics and sponsors of fake news.
The statement said further that the APC Caretaker Committee is already embarking on nationwide consultations with Party stakeholders to prepare the ground for a rancor-free National Convention, adding that the sub-committee on budgeting and other substructures will be set up in due course.
