The All Progressives Congress (APC), on Wednesday, debunked reports of plots to remove its National Chairperson, Abdullahi Adamu, from office.

The National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, in a statement in Abuja, said the report was being sponsored by opposition political parties.

Media reports had surfaced on Wednesday claiming that there were plots to remove Mr Adamu from office.

Mr Adamu, a former governor of Nasarawa State, was elected as APC national chairperson earlier in the year.

“The attention of the APC has been drawn to opposition-sponsored media reports on plots to remove the National Chairman of the party, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu.

“The reports are based on the imagination of its sponsors ostensibly unnerved by the remarkable achievements of Mr Adamu since assuming office as the national chairman,” the party’s spokesperson said.

Mr Morka said the APC and its leaders were currently focused on the important task of building a strong and vibrant electoral campaign ahead and would not be distracted by ‘boring chirps of idle speculators.’

He said: ”the opposition PDP was quite welcomed to continue to dissipate its energies on innuendos and chasing after phantom plots in APC rather than concentrate on mending its broken and acrimonious house.

”The APC National Working Committee (NWC) remained united under Adamu’s leadership as the party’s national chairman, with the singular commitment to winNing 2023 General Elections.”
