The National Legal Adviser of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Babatunde Ogala Esq. has said that the party is yet to receive a court order restraining the National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu.
This was expressed in a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen.
“The attention of the legal department of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been drawn to a widely-reported statement on a purported court order restraining the National Publicity Secretary of our party, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu from performing his duty as our party’s spokesman.
“The Party’s Legal Department has not received the purported court order the media is referring to in their reports. If indeed, there is a court order, the party ought to have been notified.
“To this effect, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu remains the National Publicity Secretary of the Party. We call on the public, media, and members of the Party to disregard the statement and its claims.”
