The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, replied to the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Yekini Nabena, over the ongoing crisis in the party registration in Kwara State.
Recall that Mr Nabena had accused the minister of trying to outsmart Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq by calling for the cancellation of the ongoing party registration in the state.
But the minister, in a statement he signed on Tuesday, said he would not dignify Mr Nabena with a response, describing him as an impostor.
He said: “Anyone claiming to be the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC is an impostor, hence I will not dignify such a pretender with a response.”
“The said Nabena must have been speaking for himself, as the APC National Caretaker Committee, as presently constituted, has no position like that of Deputy National Publicity Secretary.
“As part of the resolutions from its last meeting in Abuja on Dec. 8th 2020, the APC NEC approved the immediate dissolution of the party organs at the polling units, wards, local government, states and zonal levels as well as the non-National Working Committee component of the NEC, and the immediate reconstitution and composition of the dissolved EXCOs to serve in their respective offices in a caretaker committee capacity, excluding the non-NWC members of NEC,” he concluded.
