APC Senators Did Not Flout Party's Directive - Lai Mohammed

The All Progressives Congress, APC has describe as misleading media reports that it’s Senators flouted the party’s directive to withdraw co-operation with the Executive until the restoration of law and order in Rivers state.

A statement by the party’s interim National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed said the reports were borne out of the gross misunderstanding of filibustering as a veritable democratic tool to impede legislation by obstructive tactics.

The APC said non-operation does not mean non-participation.

The party said it was fully aware that its members in the Senate would attend the screening of the service chiefs and have no problem with it.

APC reiterated the propriety of its directive which its described as pro-people, democratic and aimed at saving Nigeria from sliding into anarchy saying the directive had already succeeded in dousing the tension in Rivers.
