Ibrahim insisted that he remains the chairman of the party after he was reinstated by an appeals court against the controversies of a vote of no confidence passed against him by some members of the state working committee.

In a statement at the end of the press parley made available to journalists, Ibrahim said:

”You will recall that sometimes in July 2022, the Executives of APC Kente Ward of Wukari Local Government Area wrote the Chairman of APC Wukari LGA calling for the expulsion of Chief David Sabo Kente on series of allegations and offences against the party as enshrined in the party constitution 2022 as amended.
