The APC spokesman said:

“First, I am just hearing about this. I didn’t monitor that information. I wouldn’t say much about it. I don’t know the context or circumstances in which he made those comments.
“We know that the individuals who are behind this move to suspend the national chairman are people without membership in the party and any form of authority.
"From all indications, many of the members who were at that press conference where the announcement was made are individuals we profiled that are connected one way or the other with very senior officials of the NNPP.”
