“This clarification became necessary due to the suggestive ways some news platforms especially Channels Television, are reporting PACT activities as if ANN as a political party has been part of its arrangements and has reached an agreement in line with the PACT consensus candidate.

“We hereby inform our teeming members, supporters and other Nigerians, that ANN is yet to be in any consensus or alliance talk with any political party or group of persons, and whenever the party is to so do, all will duly be informed.
