APC warns on statements attributing actions to President-elect, urges
media to clarify stories

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has appealed to the media to
clarify with the authentic officials of the party and the Buhari
Campaign Organization any issue having to do with the actions of the
President-elect in order to avoid presenting falsehood as facts

In a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by its National Publicity
Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the appeal becomes
necessary following recent media reports on the actions which the
President-elect will purportedly embark upon once he is sworn into

''Various people have been quoted in the media on what the
President-elect will do or will not do once he assumes office. The
truth is that these people do not speak for the President-elect, hence
the need for the media to clarify such issues with the Chairman of the
party, its National Publicity Secretary or the Spokesman of the Buhari
Campaign Organization. These officials are always available to clarify
issues,'' it said.

APC said the ongoing transition is a delicate period that fifth
columnists could capitalize on to cause disaffection or overheat the
polity, hence the need for all stakeholders to be extra-cautious and
to put the national interest above all other interests.

Meanwhile, the party has described as a mere fiction the ministerial
lists currently being circulated, especially on the Social Media.

''Nigerians should disregard these lists and await the authentic list
which will be communicated through the appropriate channels at the
right time,'' it said.
