Press Release

APC Rejects John J. Usanga, Ambassador Designate.

The attention of the APC Akwa Ibom State Chapter has been drawn to the news of the appointment of Mr. John J. Usanga as an Ambassador Designate in place of Mr. Oboro Efiong Akpabio.

While we appreciate President Muhammadu Buhari for taking such swift action in effecting a replacement, we also quickly like to draw the attention of HE to certain basic information about the new nominee, John J. Usanga.

The new replacement would have been highly applauded and joyously celebrated if he were not an outright antagonist of APC as a party and ardent critic of the same government he is now being recruited to serve without any clearance from APC State Chapter.

Besides, he is neither a member nor a well wisher of our party, on that note APC Akwa Ibom State Chapter rejects and opposes his appointment as ambassadorial nominee.

To his account, we therefore attach to this release some of his publications against our party and the government to be read along together, if these are what make him more qualified than others during selection.

We remain extremely grateful and loyal to Mr. President for his anticipating attention and desire to restore APC, Akwa Ibom State and Nigeria in general to progressive minds.

God bless APC.
