The aggrieved Northern Christian politicians in the ruling All Progressive Congress has disowned themselves from the endorsement made by the leader of the group, Engr Babachir Lawal where he endorsed Peter Obi of the Labour Party.
In a statement signed by eight members of the group, the group spokesman Rt Hon Yakubu Dogara said they haven't formally endorsed any candidate.
the statement reads:
We want to draw the attention of the general public to the recent position canvassed by our Chairman, Engr B D Lawal, as the position of our Group.
We wish to state that necessary consultations have been concluded, and based on manifestly unassailable empirical data, the group is poised to adopt a position which will be made known to the public at an interfaith event to be held very soon.
Also suffices to say that no one in the group including the Chairman has been mandated to speak to the public about our position at this material time.
Based on our modus Operandi, our position was meant to be presented to the general public at the event above referred to. That has not changed.
Consequently, the decision to endorse a particular candidate and the statement credited to the chairman are soley the decision and views of the Chairman which he is absolutely entitled to but not that of the group.
