The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the governing All
Progressives Congress
(APC) Mr. Yekini Nabena, said he has taken over the
office of Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu on acting capacity pending the time the later
will vacate a Court order retranning him from duty.

A Sokoto High Court last week had restrained the party from
appointing or electing “Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu or any member” into
its top positions except through a National Convention.

In a statement signed on Sunday in Abuja, the deputy spokesman
said with understanding Onilu he would act pending the time Mallam will sort
out the court matter.

Nabena said: “APC is a law abiding party and as leaders
of the party we must be seen doing the right thing at all time,  including respecting the order of the court.
In lieu of this, Mallam Onilu has began the process of vacating the order of
the Sokoto High Court restraining him but pending the time this will be done I
will act in his position.

“Unlike the former ruling party, APC has high regard
for the judiciary and we must be seen at all time practice what we
preach,” Nabena stated.

The Bayelsa-born politician, however called for
understanding among the APC supporters worldwide even as he urged the media and
other stakeholders to cooperate with him in carrying out the assignment as

He assured media representatives of prompt responses to
enquiries and clarifications while creating mutual understanding between the
public and the governing party.
