Naija News learnt that the party said this in a statement yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu.

Recall as earlier published by Naija News, an Ilorin high court on Wednesday, sacked Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq as the APC governorship candidate in Kwara State and the court ruling has continued to generate mixed reactions.

The party however noted, “We wish to restate the National Working Committee (NWC) decision to expel the erstwhile Ishola Balogun Fulani-led All Progressives Congress (APC) Executive in Kwara State.”“This is in view of widespread misinterpretations given to a judgement of an Ilorin High Court on Wednesday.”

The ruling party explained that the decision to expel Ishola Balogun Fulani and others was within the powers of its NWC which investigated and deliberated on their alleged anti-party activities.

It explained further that direct primaries were used to elect party candidates in Kwara for the 2019 general elections, stressing that state executives had no role to play in the primaries.

Only candidates that emerged from the direct primary exercise conducted by the NWC inaugurated committee was submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).“These candidates remain the authentic flagbearers of APC,” the party added.

It, therefore, urged the people of the state and members of the party to remain unrelenting in their collective efforts ahead of the forthcoming polls.
