The All Progressives Congress has denied the suspension of Senator Rochas Okorocha, a former Governor of Imo State.
The national working committee (NWC) of the party denounced a letter being circulated suspending the lawmaker.
John Akpanudoedehe, national secretary of the APC caretaker committe denying the suspension, stated that the letter did not come from the party.
“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,” he said.
“Fifth columnists and forgers have obviously 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 Chaiman 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.”
He added that the letter “is a figment of the imagination of fifth columnists”, and urged members to ignore it.
