The leadership of APC youth parliament in Bauchi state has condemned the attack by some hoodlums suspected to be loyal to the party on the secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in the state on Thursday saying the perpetrators are not members of the youth wing of the party.
Recall that the thugs stormed the secretariat Thursday morning where they disrupted a press conference being addressed by some factional chieftains of the party and injured two journalists.
However, the secretary of the APC youth parliament in a press release issued on Saturday dissociated the youth wing from the act.
” We wish to condemn in strong terms and by the same token dissociate ourselves from the said disruption of the press conference purported to have happened at the NUJ secretariat Bauchi.
“As featured in the reportage of some media outlets, the disruption was said to be a same party affair where a faction within the APC advocating the dissolution of state Exco were attacked, but this is is a mere fabrication by unscrupulous people who masquerade as party members to discredit the hard earned reputation of the party faithfuls.
“The youths parliament gathered reliably that, it was a fight between some disgruntle elements within the party trying to share the money given to them to cause rancur within the party.
“In their attempt to collect part of the proceeds, the fight erupted. We the indefatigable APC youth parliament across the state are law abiding, by antecedent we have never been found in such shameful act and will never be part of our character.
“It is in the light of the above that we wish to reiterate our firm and unreserved support to the Bauchi state APC leadership under the able chairmanship of Our Undeterred Leader Hon. Alh. Uba Ahmad Nana( Garkuwan Ningi).
“We therefore call on the APC members across the state to maintain the tempo as law abiding citizens and remain committed to the ideals of the party for the overall development of the state”. He said.
