Read Time:1 Minute, 9 Second

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied false and reckless reports making the rounds that the party has been pushing for a postponement of the forthcoming general elections.

The governing party emphatically said it was ready for the elections slated for February 25 and March 11 respectively.

The party said there was no iota of truth in the report, insisting that the party remain confident that Nigerians will overwhelmingly renew its mandate in a peaceful, free and credible electoral contest. In a statement yesterday, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka dismissed the report, stressing that it is fake news.

The statement reads in part: “Our attention has been drawn to a shadowy media report in some media outlets that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is pushing for a postponement of the 2023 general elections.

The report is blatantly false and reckless and bears no iota of credibility. Beyond its loud headline, the report offers no substantive justifying content aside from its intended purpose of misleading and causing needless anxiety and speculations regarding the upcoming elections.

Our general election is a matter of extreme national importance bordering on national security and corporate integrity of our country. It is not and should not become a matter for idle, rash or insensitive speculation by the media or any institution for that matter. It bears reiterating that the underlying report is fake news.
