The National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator John Akpankudohede has warned that the ruling Party is under a well orchestrated attack by fake news peddlers and mischief makers who are bent on destroying the Party.
Senator Akpankudohede said this while speaking with journalists on his purported resignation as reported by a cross section of the media claiming that he has resigned his position as Secretary General of the Party.
Akpankudohede said that he remained the national secretary of the APC CECPC.
“I have read in the social media that I have resigned as secretary of the APC CECPC, I want to state that it is not true. I didn’t resign.
“If I have resigned, you would have seen my letter of resignation written by me. Someone cannot just say somebody is dead when he is alive.
“I am not bigger than the party, or bigger than Mr. President who is a leader of the country.
“I am waiting for the chairman, if we have directives from Mr. President that we should resign, we are not bigger than the President, we will do so, if we hear from him,” Akpankudohede said.
He said that reports indicating that he had resigned his position as Secretary of the APC CECPC ARE fake news.
Akpankudohede also faulted reports that he had been asked to resign by President Muhammadu Buhari saying it was untrue.
“Someone cannot say the President said. I have not received any letter from anywhere,” he said.
He said that the CECPC under Gov. Mai Mala Buni had done so much for the APC since it was inaugurated on June 25, 2020.
This, he said, included registering 41 million party members and paying for the party’s national secretariat in Wuse 11, Abuja.
“We have done reconciliation of aggrieved party members, ward, local government and state congresses, and we are about to do the National Convention.
“And you will agree with me that when we came in, this place was like a dead zone, the secretariat was moved to a private house, but we were committed to what we were doing,” he said.
