The All Progressives Congress (APC) has clarified on purported sales of nomination forms for forthcoming congresses, directing members of the party to disregard the message and avoid making payment into any bank account because the sales of the nomination forms has not commenced.
A press release signed by Sen. John James Akpanudoedehe, the National Secretary of Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) reads:
Our attention has been drawn to an unauthorized message asking members of the party wishing to contest for various posts in the forthcoming congresses to make payments for nomination forms through a bank account.
Members of the party should disregard the message and avoid making payment into any bank account because the sales of the nomination forms has not commenced.
This clarification has become necessary in order to ensure that no member of the party is duped in the name of making payments for nomination forms.
The APC management will use the appropriate channels of communication to inform interested members when the sales of the forms will commence and provide authenticated bank account for making the required payment.
The relevant security agencies have been alerted on the fraudulent request for payment and when those behind it are apprehended they would be prosecuted for financial crimes.
