The All Progressives Congress APC has warned the opposition party Labour Party to swim in their own mess and stop dragging the APC into their problems.
The APC said this in a statement released on Saturday 8th April 2023 by Barr. Felix Morka APC National Publicity Secretary.
Recall that the Labour Party has been having a leadership crisis after the February 25 presidential election which has since seen the party divided into two factions.
One the faction of Labour Party led by Barrister Julius Abure has continued to accuse the APC of trying to hijack the party by sponsoring faceless individual to cause division in the Party.
Reacting to the Labour Party’s alligations, the ruling All Progressives Congress APC said that APC is not responsible for Mr Abure’s travails.
According to him, the embattled Labour Party Chairmt should do well to focus his thin attention and energy on dealing with the many allegations of criminal conduct of forgery and financial impropriety leveled against him by his own party.
The Statement Reads;
LABOUR PARTY, SWIM IN YOUR OWN MESS, LEAVE APC OUT OF IT
With legs deep in quick sand, the embattled National Chairman of the Labour Party (LP), Julius Abure, clawing desperately in search of firmer ground, baselessly blames the All Progressives Congress (APC) for his sinking and dysfunctional Party.
In his irrational outburst, Mr. Abure accused the APC of colluding with police and other security agencies to invade and seize LP’s national secretariat and staging a crisis in that party.
Total vindication of APC of any involvement in LP’s imbroglio was swiftly and categorically delivered by Mr. Abure’s successor and Acting National Chairman of LP, Mr. Lamidi Apapa, who exonerated our great Party of any interference in the party’s raging internal crisis.
He clarified that the reported situation at the LP headquarters was a result of a legal process arising from the orders of a Federal Capital Territory High Court that barred Mr. Abure and other national officers of the party from parading themselves as such.
The LP’s morbid obsession with APC is unfathomable and infantile, blaming APC for all its internal woes. Mr Abure’s bogus claim follows Mr Peter Obi’s unsubstantiated and vexatious claim that he was being hounded into exile by our party.
To be clear, APC is not responsible for Mr Abure’s travails. He will do well to focus his thin attention and energy on dealing with the many allegations of criminal conduct of forgery and financial impropriety leveled against him by his own party
While the LP continues to grapple with its myriad woes and crying wolf where none exists, the APC will stay focused and committed to forming a new government to be led by the visionary President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as he drives the Renewed Hope agenda, and consolidate on the many gains of the out-going President Buhari-administration.
