The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, on Thursday reacted to the formation of faction in the party, saying the arrowheads of the group are not genuine members of the party.

A statement by the party’s spokesman, Bolaji Abdullahi, said the action of the reformed All Progressives Congress, rAPC, was mischievous and ill-advised.

“On Wednesday July 4, 2018, a group of individuals announced itself as ‘Reformed All Progressives Congress (APC)’ at a press conference held in Abuja. By their actions, this group has attempted to create the impression that our Party is factionalised. This is not true.

“The All Progressives Congress (APC) wishes to affirm that there is no faction in our Party and declares the action by these individuals as mischievous and ill-advised.

“Having failed to scuttle the National Convention as was their original plan, they now resort to this subterfuge as a way of achieving the pre-determined end of causing confusion.

“As a matter of fact, we doubt that these individuals parading as leaders of the so called faction are actual members of our Party. We are currently investigating their true membership status within the Party.
