The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned a leaked letter the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, wrote to the Chairman, Independent National Electoral Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, informing the Commission of the schedule of the congresses and primaries to elect party candidates for the 2019 general elections.
In a statement, the Ag. National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Yekini Nabena, said the “leaks of our sensitive and confidential correspondence to INEC is becoming commonplace and totally unacceptable. We strongly request that INEC looks into its internal handling of official correspondence and put a stop to these leaks.”
The statement noted that while the leaked formal notification to INEC has been done by the APC pursuant to the provisions of Section 85 of the 2010 Electoral Act (as amended), the party advised the general public particularly the media to wait for an official announcement from the Party as the leaked dates are subject to changes, if necessary.
