The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused some persons of “satanic plans” against the ruling party ahead of 2023.
The APC raised the alarm after a report on alleged bickering involving Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, and National Caretaker Chairman and Yobe Governor, Mai Buni.
The chieftains were accused of disagreement over who will occupy the seat of the President after the next general elections.
In a statement on Friday, Buni’s spokesman, Mamman Mohammed insists there is no conflict, adding that claim was false.
Mohammed said “the satanic plans being orchestrated by mischievous elements” were meant to distract the APC leadership and discredit the President Muhammadu Buhari led government.
“They (Lawan and Buni) have remained good brothers in a very good relationship with a common goal of contributing to the development of their state, party and country.”
Mohammed said his principal was preoccupied with the task of governance of his state and rebuilding the party.
He noted that any member canvassing for the top political office, two years into the tenure of a sitting President, was engaging in insubordination.
Mohammed added that Buhari has two more years to complete his tenure and must be supported to succeed.
“It is compulsory for the party and every loyal member to support him and the APC administration. We cannot contemplate anything outside the set plans of the party”, the statement read.
