“By this, a formal notice has been issued to INEC, party faithful, media houses and the general public that no such gathering had been planned or sanctioned by AAC.”

He described any of such gatherings in the name of the party as “baseless, criminal and motivated by mischief.”

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the party has been embroiled in crisis since July 27, after Mr Leonard Nzenwa, the former Nation Secretary of the party was expelled by its NEC.
