APC didn’t lose $75,000 - Felix Morka

By James Kwen

Felix Morka, National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said the money that reportedly lost at the party’s national secretariat does not belong to the party.

Morka said the loss is neither connected with proceeds of sale of forms nor with relocation of the venue for the collection of expression of interest and nomination forms from the secretariat grounds to the International Conference Centre (ICC), as erroneously reported by the media.

There were media media reports that $75,000 which is about N43,000,000 in Nigeria’s currency allegedly got missing at the APC national secretariat, Abuja on Wednesday.

But Morka in a statement on Thursday denying the report said only $50,000 was lost by an individual around the entrance gate of the national secretariat.

“Our attention has been drawn to reports in sections of the media regarding lost US Dollars at the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress.

“The Party’s decision to relocate the venue for collection of forms to the ICC was to ease heavy human and vehicular traffic around the Secretariat with teeming aspirants and their supporters who thronged the Secretariat to collect forms.

“As widely advertised and reported in major news outlets, all purchase of forms are payable to designated bank accounts of the Party. In any event, the fee for the said forms is set and denominated in Naira not US Dollars.

“We urge our party members and the general public to disregard any reports or suggestion to the contrary as false and grossly misleading,” the statement read in parts.
