The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has described reports making the rounds as published by some media houses as false and misleading.
In a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the party said that media houses should always cross check facts before dishing them out to the public.
” Our attention has been drawn to syndicated fake news published in some sections of the media that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) ‘raided’ the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday, February 22, 2018.
“The report is completely false as nothing of such happened as reported.
“We once again appeal to media houses to fact check and verify information ascribed or relating to our Party from the official APC media channels,” it concluded.
