The All Progressive Congress has denied claims of a leaked APC 2023 Election Document currently in circulation saying it’s mischievous against the party.

A statement signed by the Party’s National Publicity Secretary Barr. Felix Morka on Monday, June 27, 2022, said the leaked document alleged that the Party has voted a whooping N6.5trillion to fund schemes aimed at swaying the Nigerian electorate to support and vote for the Party and its Presidential Candidate in 2023. 

Felix who described the document as ridiculous noted that the author alleged that the APC have voted this obscene amounts of money for outright vote-buying; compromising INEC staff; security operatives; judicial officers, and other officials to work in their favor. 

“The APC wishes to place firmly on record that the document is not of the Party. We neither authored nor own any such document, and it certainly did not emanate from our Party. 

Indubitably, the document is the handiwork of very sick elements of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a desperate quest for unmerited electoral advantage by attempting to smear our Party with wrongdoing. 

In their zealous attempt to mudslinging, the document’s authors senselessly alleged that our Party proposes to apply nearly half of the country’s entire 2022 budget to buy votes. How in the world does a government operating a national budget of N17trillion dole out N6.5trillion to rig elections? It clearly betrays the authors’ extreme ignorance of the complexity of the systems and processes for the appropriation and utilization of state funds. 

Only a party that is a masterful looter of the national treasury such as the PDP can even imagine another capable of engaging in the kinds of atrocious acts the document suggests.” 

The party, therefore, urged Nigerians to disregard such propaganda for which the PDP has gained notoriety.
