APC: We Didn’t Conduct Assessment Poll on Buhari


Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja

The All Progressives Congress (APC) wednesday disclosed that it did not carry out any assessment on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration neither did it commission anyone to do so on its behalf.

The party said its attention was drawn to some false and misleading reports that it conducted a poll to assess the performance of President Buhari administration.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Malam Bolaji Abdulahi, the party asked Nigerians to disregard any such assessment purported to have been ordered by it.

“For the record, the APC has not conducted or authorised any assessment poll on the President Buhari administration. The media and indeed the 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,” the statement said.

The party had last year distanced itself from the twitter handle, “@APCNigeria” following similar report credited to the party on the outcome of the Benue South senatorial rerun election.
