The All Progressives Congress has denied the report that the Kogi State working committee of the party has been suspended.

A statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mallam Bolaji Abdullah condemned the report aired on a national television and declared that it didn’t emanate from the National Working Committee of the ruling party.

It reads, “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.”

The party affirmed its support for Alhaji Haddy A. Ametuo-led state executive as the only recognized sec in Kogi State.

“In this wise, we affirm that the State Working Committee of APC in Kogi State led by the Chairman, Alhaji 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,” the statement continues.

“We wish to affirm that whether in Kogi or elsewhere, the NWC will ensure that justice is done to all concerned and will be guided by the constitution of the party and the best interest of the party. At the moment, we believe this action, purportedly sacking the Kogi executive is prejudicial and incongruous with the party’s desires for reconciliation.
We enjoin all party members at all levels to desist from taking unilateral actions that are likely to further jeopardise the on-going peace process.”
