We stand on our list of principal officers - APC

26 June 2015, 06:42

Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned what transpired at both chambers of the National Assembly on Thursday in Abuja.

In a statement issued by the party's National Secretary, Alhaji Mai Mala Buni, APC said the party stood by the lists sent to the Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

It would be recalled that the party had sent letters to both chambers conveying names of its candidates for the principal offices of both chambers while a faction of the lawmakers favour choosing the leaders from the zones.

"The National Caucus, Board of Trustees and National Executive Council of the party will meet within the next few days to discuss the evolving developments in the National Assembly," it said.
