APC state chairmen deny requesting for the sack of Akpabio

The forum of state chairmen of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied the report that it called for the sack of the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs (MNDA), Senator Godswill Akpabio.

Reports had claimed that the forum called on President Muhammadu Buhari to sack Akpabio for setting up of an interim management committee for the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), not minding the fact that Buhari only just appointed a substantive board for the commission.

The report had claimed that the chairman and secretary of the forum, Ali Bukar Dolari and Ben Nwoye, respectively, signed the statement calling for the minister’s sack.

But in a statement this weekend, signed by Dalori and Nwoye, the duo denied the report and described it as a targeted attack on the administration of President Buhari. They added that the report was an attempt to mislead Nigerians using the name of the forum.

Dalori and Nwoye said that APC chairmen were fully in support of all the steps taken by the Buhari-led government to reposition the NDDC, including the composition and inauguration of the three-man interim management committee, led by Joi Nunieh.

They said the forum had passed a vote of confidence on Akpabio, adding, that the report calling for his dismissal was a figment of the imagination of the unknown authors of the said statement.

The statement read, “The attention of the APC State Chairmen’s Forum has been drawn to a trending report, calling for the removal of the Minister of the Niger Delta Affairs,Akpabio.

“The Forum wishes to state, categorically that the said report did not emanate from us. It is a concoction of the originators of the fake, malicious and misleading fabrication, intended to embarrass Mr President.

“The public is therefore enjoined to discountenance the said publication as due process is being followed to unravel the perpetrators of the dastardly plot of using the name of the APC State Chairmen’s Forum in such a fallacious publication.

“The Forum further restates its unflinching support for the commitment and success of President Buhari administration.
