Speaking on the group's leadership, Comrade Bello said the Jibrilla Madu Gadzama was the national coordinator from 2013 until he left the APC before the 2019 election, a copy of the statement sighted by on Facebook also indicates.

Bello said he stepped up from his previous position as the national secretary to become the national coordinator after Gadzama's exit, in line with the group's constitution.

He said Alfa has never been a member of the APC youth group, adding that the leadership of the group is shocked that he is conducting himself as the national coordinator.

The group reportedly displayed some documents while talking to newsmen to show that it has duly registered as a support group of the ruling APC since 2013.

Comrade Bello said Alfa and his cohorts have organised an event scheduled to hold on Saturday, June 26, to give awards to unsuspecting members of the APC.

In a statement by the spokesman of the APC Patriots, Victor Afam Ogene, the group said that the APGA’s participation in the next election remains a matter of conjecture.
