The National Secretary of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, has rubbished reports that he has resigned.
He stated this while addressing journalists on Tuesday at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.
Akpanudoedehe stressed that he would only resign his position if President Muhammadu Buhari asked him to.
Akpanudoedehe stated: “I have read in social media that I have resigned as Secretary of the APC. I want to state that it is not true. I didn’t resign. If I had resigned, you would have seen my letter of resignation written by me. Someone cannot just say somebody is dead when he is alive.
“I am not bigger than the party, or bigger than the president who is a leader of the country. I am waiting for the nationalu chairman to come back.
“This is not the first time you are seeing a power play. I am waiting for the Chairman. If we have a directive from the President that we should resign, we are not bigger than the president, we will do.
“So, if we hear from him. Somebody cannot say go and announce he is resigning. Like MKO Abiola used to say you don’t shave someone’s head in his absence. I am stating here that that breaking news is not from me. I don’t know who announced it.
“Someone cannot say the president said. I have not received any letter from anywhere. As I said, nobody is bigger than the party. The issue is that, have I resigned, the answer is no. I am the national secretary of the party”.
