APC Dismisses Viral Ministerial Nominees List, Says Media Should Verify Stories


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has appealed to the media to clarify with the officials of the party and the Buhari Campaign Organization any issue having to do with the actions of the President-elect so as to avoid presenting falsehood as facts.

“Various people have been quoted in the media on what the President-elect will do or will not do once he assumes office. The truth is that these people do not speak for the President-elect, hence the need for the media to clarify such issues with the Chairman of the party, its National Publicity Secretary or the Spokesman of the Buhari Campaign Organization. These officials are always available to clarify issues,” the APC said in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

According to the party, the ongoing transition is a delicate period that fifth columnists could capitalize on to overheat the polity. There is therefore the need for all stakeholders to apply caution and let national interest come first.

As part of false messages being circulated, the APC said Nigerians should disregard the ministerial list being circulated “and await the authentic list which will be communicated through the appropriate channels at the right time”.
