APC denies conducting mid-term poll to assess Buhari’s performance

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed as false and misleading reports that the party conducted a mid-term poll to assess the performances of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.

In a statement signed and issued to journalists in Abuja by its National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, the Party denied the “assessment poll” purportedly conducted on social media by the operators of a twitter handle – “@APCNigeria.”

It also blamed media organizations that published the story without verifying from the Party’s Publicity department the authenticity of the unauthorised poll credited to the Party for misleading and misinforming the public.

The statement reads: “The attention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been drawn to some false and misleading news reports that the Party conducted a poll to assess the performances of President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
“For the record, the APC has not conducted or authorised any assessment poll on the President Buhari administration. The media and indeed the general public are advised to ignore the questionable poll.
“The twitter handle, “@APCNigeria” with which the so called “assessment poll” was purportedly conducted is not the official twitter account of the APC.
“Unfortunately, media organisations that published the story did not verify from the Party’s Publicity department the authenticity of the unauthorised poll credited to the Party.
“Recall that the Party had on February 21, 2016 distanced itself from the twitter handle, “@APCNigeria” following a similar false report credited to the Party on the outcome of the Benue South Senatorial rerun election.”
