Former Vice President  Atiku Abubakar has
denied reports that he was on Monday
queried by the leadership of his party over his recent
call for the restructuring of the country.

In a statement issued by his Media Office Tuesday in
Abuja, the All Progressives Congress chieftain noted that his visit to the
party secretariat was not a response to summon by the
leadership of the party as widely reported.

“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 concluded.

A national paper had reported that the
former vice president was summoned to the party
secretariat to answer queries regarding his public calls
for restructuring.
