The North East All Progressives Congress Social Media Forum has said that it didn’t endorse Senator Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, former Nasarawa State Governor, for national chairmanship of the party.
The statement of denial was made by Shuahinu Abdullahi, Chairman, North East APC Social Media Forum (NEAPCSMF).
He made this remark a statement issued to newsmen in Damaturu, Yobe State capital.
He said that the denial is necessary after the forum’s attention was drawn to a report circulating on social media platforms with a caption ‘North East Social Media Forum Endorses Al-Makura for National Chairman of APC’.
The Chairman noted that, “At no time or place has the forum or any of its branches across the six North-East states involved in any endorsement nor any of its genuine members or branch aware of, or given the mandate to make the said press endorsement.
“The leadership of the NEAPCSMF is hereby issuing this statement to disassociate itself from any such purported endorsement and calls on all members of the party in North East and Nigeria at large to be aware that the said news did not emanate from the Forum”.
According to Abdullahi, the objective of NEAPCSMF is to work as a support group by promoting the values, achievements, activities and image of the party.
“It also works closely with the apex body of the party, which has the primary role of engaging all members and stakeholders across the country in matters of the party,” he added.
