The ruling All Progressives Congress APC has warned the Labour Party and its Presidential Candidate, Mr Peter Obi to focus on their sinking party and leave the APC out of it.
APC in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka on Saturday said it was not responsible for the crisis in the Labour Party but mainly focused on forming a new government led by President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
READ THE FULL STATEMENT
“With legs deep in quicksand, the embattled National Chairman of the Labour Party LP, Julius Abure, clawing desperately in search of firmer ground, baselessly blames the All Progressives Congress APC for his sinking and dysfunctional Party. In his irrational outburst, Mr. Abure accused the APC of colluding with police and other security agencies to invade and seize LP’s national secretariat and staging a crisis in that party.
“Total vindication of APC of any involvement in LP’s imbroglio was swiftly and categorically delivered by Mr. Abure’s successor and Acting National Chairman of LP, Mr. Lamidi Apapa, who exonerated it of any interference in the party’s raging internal crisis.
“He clarified that the reported situation at the LP headquarters was a result of a legal process arising from the orders of a Federal Capital Territory High Court that barred Mr. Abure and other national officers of the party from parading themselves as such.
“The LP’s morbid obsession with APC is unfathomable and infantile, blaming APC for all its internal woes. Mr Abure’s bogus claim follows Mr Peter Obi’s unsubstantiated and vexatious claim that he was being hounded into exile by our party.
“To be clear, APC is not responsible for Mr Abure’s travails. He will do well to focus his thin attention and energy on dealing with the many allegations of criminal conduct of forgery and financial impropriety leveled against him by his own party.
“While the LP continues to grapple with its myriad of woes and crying wolf where none exists, the APC will stay focused and committed to forming a new government to be led by the visionary President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as he drives the Renewed Hope agenda, and consolidate on the many gains of the out-going President Buhari-administration.
