APC condemns NASS invasion hours after calling incident “legislative matter”


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the invasion of the National Assembly “in strongest terms”.

Yekini Nabena, National Publicity Secretary of the party, said this in a statement sent to DAILY POST Tuesday evening.

He said: “Our Party wholly dissociates itself from any act of brigandage and affront on the sacred symbols of our budding democracy.

“Our Party remains a law abiding political organisation and advises every constituent part to abide by the tenets of our constitution and our democracy.

“Whilst our contention with the leadership of the National Assembly as currently constituted is a matter of public record, we still believe that the legislature as an independent arm of government must be allowed free reign for vibrant contestation of ideas and values amongst its members within the context of their constitutional mandate and for the benefit of the Nigerian people.

“We call for a more harmonious working relationship between the various Arms of Government in the general interest of the country.”

But in a statement hours earlier, APC stated that what happened was a “legislative matter”.

The party also stated that National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, was not in any way involved as being suggested in some quarters.
