South West All Progressives Congress (APC), has debunked reports that the party frowns at Buhari’s tribal appointment.

In a statement signed by the Lagos State Publicity Secretary Joe  Igbokwe, APC said the story was not only false, “but potentially dangerous”, as it could create further divisions within the APC family.

The Statement read in part: “The South West APC Chairmen never met anywhere in the South West and did not in any way issue the purported statement.

We consider it potentially dangerous and unacceptable that some persons or group of persons will resort to this type of petty politics either to entertain themselves or to create further divisions within the APC family.

“We know we have some issues to resolve at the National Assembly but it has not come to the point that we have to use our hands to pull down a solid house we have built together.

“Consequently, we want to warn these mischief makers to desist from this ugly act that was framed in the first place to heat the polity and further embarrass the leadership of the party nationwide. This is the handwork of the enemies of our great party and they will fail at the fullness of time.

We are therefore using this medium to appeal to APC leaders and supporters in the South West and Nigeria as a whole to be calm, and to believe strongly that the dust raised by the National Assembly issues will soon be a thing of the past and our great party will bounce back stronger, solid and more united”.

The ruling party has been embroiled in intra party feud, following the election of Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara as the Senate President and Speaker House of Representatives, respectively on June 9.

This is against the backdrop of the fact that the duo was not the party’s preferred candidates. Since then, the leadership of the party is yet to make headway in resolving the crisis.
