The secretary to Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) Senator James Akpanudoedehe, has debunked report of his resignation as a member of the CECPC.
He, said he and Buni would only leave if and when they hear directly from the president.
According to him “Someone cannot say the president said. I have not receive any letter from anywhere. As I said, nobody is bigger than the party. The issue is that, have I resigned? the answer is no. I am the national secretary of the party,” he said.
” I have read in social media that I have resigned as Secretary of the APC. I want to state that it is not true that I didn’t resigned. If I have resign, you would have seen my letter of resignation written by me. Someone cannot just say somebody is dead when he is alive.
“I am not bigger than the party, or bigger than the president who is a leader of the country. I’m waiting for the national chairman to come back”
“I am waiting for the Chairman. If we have directive from the president that we should resign, we are not bigger than the president, we will do so, if we hear from him,” Akpanudoedehe insisted.
On his relationship with the acting Chairman, he said it was cordial.
Meanwhile, the acting Chairman Caretaker committee of APC, Gov. Abubakar Sani Bello, has summoned an extraordinary meeting of the party’s National Executive Committee, NEC, for next week.
Speaking to journalists after a brief meeting of the CECPC, Governor Bello said the Committee has approved the report of the zoning Committee which was submitted Monday, adding that the report will be made public “anytime from now.”
“The report of the zoning formula has been submitted and adopted and it will be release any moment from now. I mean the zoning formula”
“Hopefully by next week, the NEC meeting will hold”, he said.
When asked whether the former CECPC Secretary, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe is still part of the new leadership, the Gov. Bello replied, “ask him”.
