A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Senator Abubakar Girei has said he is not a member of the proposed new party Action Democratic Party (ADP) as claimed in some section of the media.
Sentaor Girei in a statement he issued yesterday refuted his membership of the party and said his attention was drawn to the interview where one Engr. Yusuf Sani mentioned his name as one of the brains behind the proposed party.
According to the Senator, “I wish to refute the claim by Engr Y. Sani the self appointed Chairman of the ADP that I am one of the promoters of the proposed party. Engr. Sani whom I met only once in my life has no basis nor justification for that claim.
“I hereby dissociate myself completely from his claim and for the avoidance of doubt, reiterate that I remain an irrevocable member of the All Progressive Congress and I have no intention whatsoever of leaving my party” he stated.
Senator Girei therefore called on Nigerians to disregard such claim of his membership of ADP, describing it as baseless and completely false.
