The All Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos State has debunked reports that it suspended thousands of party members in Alimosho Local Government.

It will be recalled that some members of the party stormed the Secretariat, last week in protest over the alleged marginalisation of certain group against others in Alimosho area.

The party chairman, Cornelius Ojelabi was assaulted in the process by the protesters.

The Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Seye Oladejo, in a statement on Sunday, while reacting to news about the purported suspension of thousands of party members, urged the public to ignore the “fake news.”

The statement reads: “Our attention has been drawn to the fake news making the rounds about the purported suspension of thousands of party members in Alimosho Local Government by the state chairman.

“We wish to state unequivocally that there’s no truth in the allegation.

“The Lagos State Chairman of APC, Hon. Cornelius Ojelabi remains committed to the unity of the party and acts that engender peaceful co-existence of all members.

“APC as a political party, made up of members with different aspirations, naturally has its fair share of wrangling and suspicions that can always be resolved within the framework of its constitutional provisions.

“The chairman as an experienced individual in party politics and governance is always prepared to bend backwards to accommodate all opinions without trampling on the rights of others.

“He opines that the interests of caucuses should not over-ride that of the party which remains cohesion among members and ensuring that we act as checks to our elected and appointed officials in government as regards service delivery.

“There’s no provision in the party’s constitution that can be invoked for the chairman to unilaterally suspend a member.

“Members of the public are hereby advised to ignore statements that are designed to create an imaginary conflict and deliberate falsehood that are basically self-serving.”
