APC denies report claiming Buhari ‘tribal appointments

07 July 2015, 20:27

Lagos - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South-west has denied a report which claims that it is displeased with the appointments made by President Muhammadu Buhari, and that it has rejected the election of Senate President Bukola Saraki and House Speaker Dogara at the National Assembly.

In a statement signed by Joe Igbokwe, the APC Publicity Secretary in Lagos, the party pointed out that South West APC Chairmen never met anywhere in the South West nor issue the purported statement.

“We consider it potentially dangerous and unacceptable that some persons or group of persons will resort to this type of petty politics either to entertain themselves or to create further divisions within the APC family,” it said, noting that while there are some issues to resolve at the National Assembly, it will not pull down a solid house that has been built together.

“Consequently, we want to warn these mischief makers to desist from this ugly act that was framed in the first place to heat the polity and further embarrass the leadership of the party nationwide. This is the handwork of the enemies of our great party and they will fail at the fullness of time.”

It appealed to APC leaders and supporters in the South West and throughout Nigeria to be calm and to believe strongly that the dust raised by the National Assembly issues will soon be a thing of the past and that the party will bounce back stronger, solid and more united.
