The National Leadership of the All Progressive Congress, APC National Youth Vanguard has said the leadership of the group has been impersonated by Mr Haruna Alfa and others.

This was contained in a press release signed by Comr. Bashir Mohammed Bello, National Coordinator, and Comr. Kingsley Omadoye, South-South Coordinator.

According to him, “We have observed with rapt attention that one Mr Haruna Alfa and others are impersonating us and we have written the National Leadership of our great Party on June 15th, 2021 with an acknowledgement copy dated June 17th, 2021”.

Speaking on the leadership of the group from 2013 till date, Comr. Bello avowed that “Comr Jibrilla Madu Gadzama was the National coordinator from 2013 until he left the party before the 2019 election. His resignation created a vacuum which thereafter got occupied by me who was then National Secretary, according to our constitution. Mr Haruna Alfa has never been a member of the APC National youth vanguard, we are therefore shocked that he is conducting himself as the National Coordinator of the Vanguard”.

One of the documents displayed by the leadership of the group during the press briefing revealed that the APC National Youth Vanguard was on January 29th, 2013 registered as a support group of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC under the leadership of Chief John Odigie-Oyegun as then National Chairman and H.E Mal. Mala Buni was then National Secretary of the party.

Part of the press statement reads; “our attention was also drawn to an event scheduled to hold on Saturday 26th June 2021 where Mr Haruna Alfa and his cohorts would be giving awards to unsuspecting members of our great party: we are therefore using this means once again, to notify the public particularly the National leadership and members of our great party to stop any kind of dealing with Mr Haruna Alfa and his group who are pretending to be us as they are unknown and not authorized by the Constitution of the APC National Youth Vanguard to act for or on behalf of our group”.

The group noted that they have mandated their legal team to carry out all necessary actions to ensure that the group is protected from being used by fraudulent elements to dupe uninformed members of the public.
