Abdullahi said these individuals have continued to arrogate powers to themselves by trying to decide the fate of the ruling party.
He added that these people do so without recourse to members of the APC scattered all over the country.
Governors working to destabilise the party
Abdullahi describing those promoting the "twin stories" of the endorsement and zoning in the media as purveyors of fake news and merchants of lies said the presidential flgabearer of the APC is something beyond governors including Nasiri El-Rufai or Kayode Fayemi or Mohammed Badaru can impose.
"APC-MG is challenging the PGF to publish adopted minutes of any APC meeting where it was agreed that the presidency should be zoned to any region of the country as they are now championing.
"Illegal agreements reached in covens cannot be allowed to supplant the democratic process that will take place at an elective party convention."
He warned that the cartel of state governors within the APC are working towards personalizing Nigeria for their own selfish gains which well-meaning Nigerians should do well to stand against at this point.
APC-MG further called on Nigerians to take interest in what is going on within the party and join to demand ctransparency and accountability in the APC's internal politics process.
