- The APC has mourned the killing of its Gboko southward chairman in Benue state
- James Ornguga, a spokesperson of the party in the state called for those responsible for the killing to face justice
- The APC chieftain said his party does not support violence
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the killing of Tersoo Ahu, its Gboko southward chairman in Benue state by suspected hoodlums.
The spokesperson of the party in the state, James Ornguga, urged security agencies to investigate the killing of the APC chieftain.
Premium Times, citing a report from the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), stated that Ornguga described the APC as a peaceful party.
The party’s spokesperson said the late politician and other party supporters were attacked while they were engaged in the training ahead of the membership registration/revalidation exercise.
“We strongly condemned the killing of our ward chairman. APC is a very peaceful party and we don’t believe in violence.
“So wherever this is coming from, the party frowns at it. We call on the security agencies to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to book.''
Meanwhile, the APC has responded to the error that occurred on the membership registration form of a national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu.
The ruling party is currently conducting on-going registration and revalidation of party members. Tinubu recently posted photos of his registration form shortly after taking part in the exercise.
However, Nigerians raised some concerns after spotting an error on his form.
But the APC said the error has been corrected and signed by Tinubu's ward chairman with the date of registration put as February 6, 2021.
In another news, Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state has declared that Nigerians will vote for the ruling APC again in the 2023 general elections.
Uzodinma made the comment during an interview with Channels Television on Wednesday, February 3.
He said the party will remain strong even after the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari leaves power.
