The Yobe State Governor, is Chairman, APC Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee (CECPC).
On Monday, a unit within the party, Progressive Youth Movement, announced his replacement.
They named Mustapha Audu as National Caretaker Committee Chairman with immediate effect.
He further announced a zoning formula for Positions in the new National Working Committee (NWC).
But APC National Secretary, John Akpan Udoedehe, dismissed the “felonious activities of the purported group”.
In a statement on Monday, the APC chieftain said the faction is unknown to the party, either as a structure or a registered support group and therefore non-existent.
“Relevant security bodies must now check and address their unscrupulous activities. The attention the purported group seeks will not be given to them by the party.
“We can only advise that the general public completely disregard them. They are not registered members of the APC and are being used by opposition elements and fifth columnists to cause confusion.
“As widely reported, the successful meeting between the APC leadership, Progressive Governors’ Forum and the President produced February 2022 as the timeframe for the National Convention”, Udoedehe said.
