The Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) Northern Chairmen Forum has denied endorsing the presidential ambition of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The forum in a statement issued through its Secretary, who is also the IPAC Chairman Kaduna state chapter, Mikaila Abubakar, disclosed that it had never endorsed Tinubu.
The forum accused one Dr Ahmad Ahmad of using the names of its members and other political party candidates in the North to garner support for Tinubu.
According to Abubakar, even if the forum would support a presidential candidate in 2023, it has five better options that can serve Nigerians.
The forum threatened to file a lawsuit against Dr Ahmad if he fails to tender an apology.
IPAC said, “The attention of the Northern IPAC Chairmen forum has been drawn to the fraudulent activities of some people led by one Dr Ahmad Ahmad, using the names of our members and other political parties’ candidates across the 19 Northern States to garner support for the APC presidential candidate in the forthcoming elections.
“It should be made categorically clear to whoever is concerned that he has never met with Dr Ahmad Ahmad or any of his business partners anywhere anytime.
