National Assembly barricade, false allegations — APC

Published

Adams Oshiomole

The leadership of the All Progressives Congress has dissociated itself from the early morning siege at the National Assembly by masked officials of the Department of State Services based on “orders from above.”

In a statement signed by its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, in Abuja, on Tuesday of the APC said what happened at the National Assembly was purely a “legislative matter.”

The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to mischievous attempts in some partisan quarters to link Tuesday’s developments in the National Assembly to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

“While the Party is monitoring the developments in the National Assembly like every other concerned Nigerian and stakeholder, there is absolutely no basis for all the false allegations and attempt to blame the APC National Chairman for the development there. It is strictly a legislative matter.”
