Press Statement: APC National Chairman Did Not Call for Probe of Supreme Court Judges

The attention of the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been drawn to a report in the Vanguard newspaper of Thursday, 4th February, 2016 with the title “Oyegun Calls for Probe of Supreme Court Judges” purporting to convey the reaction of the respected statesman to the verdict of the Court on the governorship election in Rivers State.

The report goes ahead to state that Chief John Odigie-Oyegun “has called for the investigation of Supreme Court judges.”

The Party wishes to deny this report in the strongest terms.

As much as he expressed “total astonishment” over the ruling of the Supreme Court, the National Chairman of the Party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, never called for the investigation of Supreme Court judges.

Indeed, a copy of the statement issued following Chief Odigie-Oyegun’s meeting with the APC delegation from Rivers State was widely circulated. At no time during the meeting or in the statement referred to did the National Chairman make such a call for the probe of Supreme Court Judges. What transpired at the meeting was correctly reported in other media outlets.

Given that the author of the Vanguard report was not physically at the venue of this event, but relied on this statement, it is baffling that he gave this slant to the story.

The Party wishes to affirm that Chief John Odigie-Oyegun has the highest regards for the judiciary.

Signed:

Mai Mala Buni
National Secretary
