The Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied the reports circulating in the media on the plans and timetable for Congresses and National Convention for the party.
In a statement issued yesterday by the National Secretary of the CECPC, John James Akpanudoedehe, the party said it is the handiwork of political jobbers who are parading themselves as ‘media sources’.
The statement said “Our attention has been drawn to obviously coordinated and syndicated misinformation being circulated in some sections of the media on purported plans and timetable for Congresses and the National Convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“This is the handiwork of political jobbers parading themselves as media sources. The media, party members and indeed the general public should be wary and completely disregard the misinformation, antics and schemes of these fifth columnists.
“We have never lied on our party activities and we simply have no reason to. The consultative Party leadership style instituted by Governor Mai Mala Buni as Chairman of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) has institutionalised the APC as a party of processes and internal democracy.
“The CECPC is focused and is delivering its mandate to recover, rebuild and reposition the APC as well as achieve peace-building, true reconciliation and to give a sense of belonging to every member of the Party.”
It said yesterday the APC National Secretariat resumed from the Sallah break and will also resume work on several ongoing and important party activities, pointing out that as usual, it will promptly communicate outcomes of these activities through official channels when available.
