The group in a release signed by its Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Ayegbokiki, noted that those making the call want to overheat the polity.

According to the statement which was made available to news men on Tuesday, said the election that produced Hon. Lasun as Deputy Speaker was in line with the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“We make bold to say that apart from the emergence of Hon. Lasun through a democratic, open and transparent election, the process of the election complied with section 50, a and b of the 1999 constitution.

“We warned all those who have allowed themselves to be used for this reprehensible act to allow reason to prevail.

“For the change which our party promised Nigerians to materialise, all hands must be on the deck.

“The least President Mohammadu Buhari expect from genuine APC members at this critical moment is for everybody to be on the same page with him.”

The group also advised the Deputy Speaker to extend hands of fellowship to all and ensure that yoruba interest is protected

The Concerned APC Stakeholders however, called on all members of the party in particular and Nigerians in general to give maximum support and cooperation to the President in his task of reforming the country.
