Members of the Northern Christians in All Progressive Congress (APC) have distanced themselves from the pronouncement by the Chairman of the Group, Babachir David Lawal, over the endorsement of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party(LP), Peter Obi, in 2023 elections.

The former Speaker House Representative Hon Yakubu Dogara and seven other Members of the Group disclosed in a statement made available to Journalists on Thursday in Bauchi.

The statement titled ‘RE: Dogara, Babachir Lawal-led Northern APC Members Dump Tinubu, Declare Support For Peter Obi’ frowned against the decision of the former secretary to the government of the federation.

The Group denied being part of the decision announced by Babachir Lawal, saying Babachir is on his own.

“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,” the Group stressed.

The Group further stressed that the decision to endorse a particular candidate and the statement credited to the Chairman are solely his decision.

“We hope this statement clears all the queries most of us have been inundated with on this all-important subject matter”, they explained.
