Ninth Assembly: Reports of ‘selection’ of principal officers fake – APC
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed media reports that it has selected principal officers for its caucus in the National Assembly, saying such reports were false.
Its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa Onilu, said in a statement that the party was still consulting with relevant stakeholders and would make their consultation public once that is concluded.
There have been reports that the party has zoned the principal officers’ positions in both the Senate and House of Representatives, with a former Nasarawa State governor picked for the position of Senate Leader and the House Leader is zoned to Kano State.
Onilu said the party has always been open in all its decisions and will not act differently in to case of principal officers of the National Assembly
“Consultations are ongoing and in our typical style, we will come out to formally announce the party’s decision on the appointments.
“With the prevalence of fake news, we urge the media to always wait for and rely on official statements from the party other than unofficial sources. The media should please take due note of this on future issues that involve our party,” the statement said.
