Kwara State APC membership tussle: Minister denies recognition of Nabena group


The Honourable Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has denied recognition of Nabena led group.

Accordingly, the Minister in a statement made available to by the media man, Mr Segun Adeyemi refused to response to any statement from Nabena, saying “Kwara APC Membership Registration: I won’t
Respond To An Impostor.

“My attention has been drawn to the statement credited to one Yekini
Nabena, who was described as the Deputy National Publicity Secretary
of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on the ongoing APC Membership
Registration in Kwara State.

“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, but excluding the non-NWC members of NEC.

As things stand, therefore, 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.
