On Wednesday July 4, 2018, a group of individuals announced itself as
‘Reformed All Progressives Congress (APC)’ at a press conference held in
Abuja. By their actions, this group has attempted to create the impression
that our Party is factionalised. This is not true.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) wishes to affirm that there is no
faction in our Party and declares the action by these individuals as
mischievous and ill-advised.
Having failed to scuttle the National Convention as was their original
plan, they now resort to this subterfuge as a way of achieving the
pre-determined end of causing confusion.
As a matter of fact, we doubt that these individuals parading as leaders
of the so called faction are actual members of our Party. We are currently
investigating their true membership status within the Party.
While we shall continue to monitor developments in this respect; we will
not hesitate to take lawful actions to defend the unity of our Party and
protect the sanctity of its identity. We are currently reviewing the
action of this so-called faction in order to determine if any aspect of
the Party’s constitution has been breached with the connivance of any of
For those members who have genuine grievances, we want to assure them of
the commitment of the new leadership of the party to address those
grievances as quickly as possible in a manner that ensures that justice is
done to all.
