The National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has repudiated a statement ascribed to the party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Comrade Timi Frank , who alleged that the “APC is now divided” amongst other bogus allegations.
The party said on the contrary, it is a strong and united family.
Frank has been campaigning for Senate President Bukola Saraki, arguing that the desertion of Saraki by the party leadership over his Code of Conduct tribunal problem, does not bode well for the future.
Party Secretary, Mai Mala Buni appeared to say that Frank over-analysed.
“The bogus and misleading allegations are unnecessary distractions to the Party’s resolve to fully support the President Muhammadu Buhari Administration deliver on the motley promises made by our great Party to the electorate.
“The APC National leadership remains united and solidly committed to the task of bringing cohesion to the Party at all levels.
“Recently, the APC held its National Caucus and National Executive Committee (NEC) meetings were positive and far-reaching decisions were collectively taken by the party’s leadership to drive the party forward.
“The party will not deny anybody or interest the right to seek justice where he feels this has been denied him. However, we sincerely appeal that we all play by the rules in our engagements and be guarded in our utterances.
“The public is advised not to misinterpret or confuse Comrade Timi Frank’s personal opinions to be the official position of the Party or the true reflection of what is happening inside the Party. For the umpteenth time, only the APC National Chairman and the National Secretary are authorised to officially speak for the Party.”
