OrderPaperToday – The national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has distanced itself from a letter of suspension of Senator Rochas Okorocha from the party.
A letter in public circulation had claimed that the senator is suspended from the ruling party.
But in a statement by Sen. John James Akpanudoedehe, National Secretary, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the party, on Tuesday in Abuja, the APC disowned such letter.
According to Akpanudoedehe: “Fifth columnists and forgers have obviously taken advantage of the unfortunate and recent leaks of our official correspondences with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to copy and paste forged signatures of the CECPC Chairman and Secretary on the letters.
“The APC does not currently have a “National Working Committee” as stated in the fake letter, but a Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) which has been saddled with the mandate to reposition, unite and strengthen our great party.
“We call on the discerning public to be wary of fifth columnists and jobbers relentlessly scheming to use every opportunity to stoke crisis in the party and polity through fake news.
“We also urge the media to always rely on our well-known and official communication and publicity channels to get information on the activities of the party.
“We urge everyone to discountenance the fake letter as it is a figment of the imagination of fifth columnists”, he stated.
