The All Progressives Congress has dismissed speculations on social media that its publicity committee expended a whooping N800m to host the presidential election that produced Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as its flagbearer.

Social media has been awash with unconfirmed accounts of how the media committee set up by the party expended between N600m and N800m on publicity alone.

The allegation became rife a few days after the end of the three-day APC National Convention which was held at Eagle Square in Abuja from June 7.

Addressing journalists after he submitted his official report at the APC national secretariat, the Chairman of Media and Publicity Committee for the special convention and Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule, debunked the report.

According to Sule, the 56-man media committee was given N120m, spent N100m and returned N20m into the party’s account.
