Solidarity Rally For Buhari : S/South APC Yet To Partner Any Group - Party

The All Progressives Congress, APC, South South has denied the report making the round on social media that the party has partnered some groups on the planned mega solidarity rally to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari after over hundred days of medical vacation in London.

The Zonal Organizing Secretary of the Party, Paul Obi who stated this in a statement issued yesterday in Calabar maintained that he was constrained to react to the report as the party has not authorized any partnership Deal with any group or individual for the purpose of the rally.

While calling on party faithfuls and the general public to disregard such report, he accused the sponsors of the report of attempting to hijack the rally.

According to the statement "My attention has been drawn to a report trending in the social media purporting that my office is in partnership with some support groups on the proposed National Unity /Solidarity rally to welcome our dear President and Commander-In-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari over his return from the UK on medical vacation.

I am constrained to point out in clear terms that the said social media report does not emanate from my office neither does it have my backing in any way. Although I have been inundated with calls from persons and groups to partner with us as a party for the event in terms of participation but no such persons or group has been given the nod to publicize the arrangement pertaining to the rally using spurious claims of a partnership with the Zonal Secretariat of our great party whose mandate I have as the ZOS to chair the committee for the planning of the said rally

This is because arrangements for hosting a successful rally are still ongoing.

While I therefore disown the said publication as it is far from the reality of the situation on ground, I urge members of our party especially individuals and groups showing serious concerns about the rally as well as the general public to disregard the social media report in totality".

He added that "My office will in the shortest possible time come out with a complete detail of what the event will look like. Attempts to hijack the rally and turn it to a child's play will equally be resisted in every sense of the word".

It will be recalled that the zonal leadership of the party recently announced that preparation was in top gear for a mega National Unity and Solidarity rally to welcome and show support for President Buhari.
