The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied the suspension of Rochas Okorocha, a former governor of Imo State.
This was made known by the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, John James Akpanudoedehe in a circular titled, “APC Alerts on fake letter of Senator Rochas Okorocha ‘Suspension”.
Mr. Akpanudoehede claims that the letter referenced in the Okorocha Suspension notice is fake and urged public members, including the general public, to discountenance the letter in circulation.
The statement read, “It has come to the attention of the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress that a fake letter of a purported suspension of Senator Rochas Okorocha from the party is circulating in the public space.
“Fifth columnists and forgers have obviously taken advantage of the unfortunate and recent leaks of our official correspondences with the Independent National Electoral Commission to copy and paste forged signatures of the CECPC Chairman and Secretary on equally fake letters.
“The APC does not currently have a “National Working Committee” as stated in the fake letter, but a Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee which has been saddled with the mandate to reposition, unite and strengthen our great party.
“We call on the discerning public to be wary of fifth columnists and jobbers relentlessly scheming to use every opportunity to stoke crisis in the party and polity through fake news.
We also urge the media to always rely on our well-known and official communication and publicity channels to get information on the activities of the party.
“We urge everyone to discountenance the fake letter as it is a figment of the imagination of fifth columnists.”
