Following news that went viral on social media that some persons have been appointed as principal officers of the 9th National Assembly, the All Progressive Congress, APC, has made it clear that it has not appointed anyone.
Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC National Publicity Secretary, said it was false and should be disregarded.
“In arriving at party decisions and indeed in all our activities, we have always been transparent, ensuring the best democratic principles are adhered to in whatever steps we take”, it said.
“Consultations are ongoing and in our typical style, we will come out to formally announce the party’s decision on the appointments.
“With the prevalence of fake news, we urge the media to always wait for and rely on official statements from the party other than unofficial sources. The media should please take due note of this on future issues that involve our party,” he said.
