In a statement by the party’s spokesman, Bolaji Abdullahi, in Abuja on Friday, APC urged party members and stakeholders to disregard the speculation, describing it as “falsehood”.

“Following Thursday’s visit of the national chairman of the APC to the Villa, the attention of the party has been drawn to surprising speculations in some sections of the media on the visit.

“For the records, the APC national chairman only met with the chief of staff to the president, Abba Kyari.

“He was not aware, neither was he part of the reported meeting between the Vice President and the former PDP national chairman,” Mr Abdullahi said.

He added that Mr Odigie-Oyegun did not visit the vice president on the day in question and had equally not met Mr Sheriff in over two years.

Mr Abdullahi therefore said that linking the chairman’s visit to the villa to media reports of Mr Sheriff’s plans to join the APC was an effort to cause confusion and disaffection in the party’s Borno chapter.
