The All Progressives Congress (APC) has officially denied claims that the presidency was involved in the alleged attempts to oust its National Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, made this clear during an interview on Arise TV.

The controversy started when the APC’s Kano State chapter, led by Ahmad Aruwa, accused certain individuals within the presidency of working against Ganduje.

Aruwa’s claims, shared in a viral video on social media, hinted at a larger conspiracy involving the presidency in the APC’s internal affairs.

In the video, Aruwa also criticized President Bola Tinubu for staying silent, despite Ganduje’s support for him in Kano during challenging times, despite opposition from some local politicians.

Felix Morka responded to the allegations by stating that the claims made by the Kano APC do not represent the official position of the party’s national body.

Much as I can’t tell the context in which Aruwa made the claim, it was not a true reflection of things,” Morka emphasized, distancing the national leadership from the controversy.

He said, “First, I am just hearing about this. I didn’t monitor that information. I wouldn’t say much about it. I don’t know the context or circumstances in which he made those comments. But the national chairman of APC is still the national chairman and we have the leader of the party who is the president, who to the best of my knowledge recognises Ganduje as our national chairman. So nothing has shifted.

“We know that the individuals who are behind this move to suspend the national chairman are people without membership in the party and any form of authority. I am sure you saw yesterday that all of the executive committee and members of the ward were at the national headquarters of our party to physically denounce all of the activities that occurred.

“We are in a situation where some imposters and outsiders in the party are invoking legal processes to embarrass, create confusion, and disturb the peace of the party in Kano for no reason. From all indications, many of the members who were at that press conference where the announcement was made are individuals we profiled that are connected one way or the other with very senior officials of the NNPP.”
