UDOMA: I’m in APC administration, not a member
The Minister of Budget and National Planning, Sen. Udoma Udo Udoma on Thursday stated that he was not a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) but working for the administration.
The Minister declined his membership of APC at the National Headquarters of the party, while fielding questions from journalists.
The Minister, who spoke to the media after a long meeting with the members of National Working Committee of APC, where he briefed them on the state of the economy, responded to the question of his membership of APC in the negative.
Asked to confirm the allegations that he said he was not a member of APC, the Ministers said, “I am a member of an APC administration.”
He had to ignore the response of the APC National Publicity Secretary, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi to respond to the question. Abdullahi had responded to the question on the Minister’s membership of APC by saying that the Minister was not going to respond to the question.
But the Minister ignored him and said that was only an appointee of the party.
