Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has debunked the insinuations that he was summoned to the party Secretariat in Abuja on Monday following his call for restructuring of the country, rather he said he was at the Secretariat as a chieftain of the party, to rub minds.
A media report had alleged that the former Vice President was queried by the leadership of his party over his recent comments.
But in a statement issued by his Media Office Tuesday in Abuja, the chieftan of All Progressives Party (APC), said: “My visit to the National Secretariat of our great party was to rub minds with the party hierarchy, and it was of a routine kind as a chieftain of the party.
“I was neither summoned nor queried by the party on any issue as being speculated. Rather, my visit was at my own behest.
“As a party chieftain, I owe it a duty to my party to appraise challenges within the structures of the party and also proffer suggestions on how to manage those challenges. I urge you all to discountenance any malicious insinuations about my visit to the party secretariat”, he added.
