- The APC in Akwa Ibom state said national chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, did not order fresh congresses in the state
- Nkereuwem Enyongekere, the party’s publicity secretary in the state, said rumours about the congresses were made to confuse and distrust the party
- Enyongekere, however, called on members of the party to ignore such reports
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akwa Ibom state on Sunday, August 19, denied rumors that the national chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, had ordered fresh congresses in the state.
Channel Tv reports that Nkereuwem Enyongekere, the party’s publicity secretary, who made this known in a statement described the reports as false.
Enyongekere said the reports were a deliberate attempt by mischievous persons working for the government, to create distrust for the APC.
He, however, stated that the results of the APC ward, chapter and state congresses in Akwa Ibom still state.
He said: “Our attention has been drawn to a misleading propaganda suggesting that the national leadership of our great party, All Progressives Congress (APC) has ordered fresh congresses in Akwa Ibom state.

“We want to state emphatically that there is no truth whatsoever in such infantile propaganda which was clearly designed by some working for the Akwa Ibom state government to create panic, confusion and distrust in our party.
“I have spoken with the acting national publicity secretary of our party and he made it clear that the results of the APC ward, chapter and state congresses in Akwa Ibom state stand.”
He, therefore, called on members of the party to ignore such reports.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that former Senate minority leader, Obong Godswill Akpbio, allegedly compared his defection to the APC and Nigeria’s forthcoming 2019 general elections with the historic 1940 invasion of Poland by Adolf Hitler’s Germany.
Senator Akpabio who recently defected from the PDP to the APC said the election shall be a war which its victory shall be in his side and his new political party, Vanguard reports.
Conducting what he said was his first official function since he formally defected to the APC in a rally at Ikot-Ekpene, Akwa Ibom state, Akpabio said he chose an uncommon method for his defection because he was an uncommon transformer.
