The media office of Senator Chris Ngige, the minister of labour and employment has dismissed the letter to President Muhammadu Buhari reportedly by members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Anambra state.
Nwachukwu Obidiwe, an aide for the former governor's media office, who disclosed this in a statement in Abuja, described the authors of the letter as impostors.
He explained that the authors of the reported letter are neither party members in the wards nor local government offices.

According to Obidiwe, a simple characterization of those behind the letter easily exposes their motive as ill and their claims, baseless, false, and mischievous.
Ngige's media aide went on to note that there is no reason genuine APC members in Anambra state would feel marginalized or excluded in opportunities offered by the ruling party.
It was gathered that the identities of two genuine APC members were allegedly stolen and signatures forged.
Ugochukwu Egbobe, the Anaocha local government chairman, and Goddy Offor, Ekwusigo local government chairman of the APC had publicly disclaimed the letter.
They explained that the other signatories are phoney characters who impersonated the genuine officers.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that ahead of the much-talked-about 2023 presidential election, a leader of the APC in the southeast, Odu Onyeka, has said only unity can ensure an Igbo candidate emerges the president.

Onyeka said this on Monday, September 14, in Awka, Anambra state, when he played host to the party's leadership led by acting chairman Basil Ejidike and the 21 local government chairmen.
He told the APC chieftains to work as one, saying if Anambra APC got it right, the entire southeast would unite.
