"CAPS has no doubt that Hon. Nabena is abreast with the capacity and experience to carry on the task of effectively managing the image, internal and external communications of the APC preparotory into the 2019 general elections and thereafter.
"CAPS has accepted the exit of Mallam Abdullahi from the APC and its appreciates the time spent and worked together and wish him well in his future political career.
"In view of the spate of movements of politicians across the different political parties and particularly the defection of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki from APC to PDP, CAPS admits that it is within the rights of the senate president to choose where to pitch his political tent.
