The Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it did not suspend Senator Rochas Okorocha.
The secretary of the CECPC, John James Akpanudoedehe, has debunked that the viral news on social media of Okorocha being suspended was false. He started this on Tuesday night.
According to him, “It has come to the attention of the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that a fake letter of a purported suspension of Senator Rochas Okorocha from the party is circulating in the public space.”
“Fifth columnists and forgers have 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 equally fake 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 party’s activities.
“We urge everyone to discountenance the fake letter as it is a figment of the imagination of fifth columnists.”
Meanwhile, reports have carried earlier that Okoroacha was accused of abusing the person and office of President Muhammad Buhari and for being involved in anti-party activities.
