- APC has denied suspending Kogi state executive
- It was reported that the Kogi state executive was suspended by the APC national working committee
- But the party said that the action did not emanate from the NWC of the party or any of its organs empowered to do so
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied claims that it suspended the party's executive in Kogi state.
NAIJ.com reports that the APC's national publicity secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, said in a statement that the action did not emanate from the national working committee of the party or any of its organ so empowered to do so.
The statement read: "Our attention has been drawn to a story on a National Television that the state executive committee of the All Progressives Congress in Kogi state has been suspended.
"We want to state that this action does not emanate from the National Working Committee of the party or any of its organ so empowered to do so.
"Although there are issues within the party in Kogi state and the NWC has empowered a committee to investigate the issues and make recommendations. The NWC has not been appropriately briefed on the outcome of the committee's work and therefore has not taken any decision.
"In this wise, we affirm that the state working committee of APC in Kogi state led by the chairman, Alhaji Haddy A Ametuo remains the only recognised executive committee of the party in the State until the appropriate organ of the party decides otherwise in accordance with the procedure laid down by the party constitution.
