APC Reacts To Crowd Trouble At Ogun State Rally
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has promised to sanction as many who are responsible for sponsoring violence at the Ogun State presidential rally on Monday.
The party, however, said whatever action to be taken will be after the general elections.
Naija News captured the drama that took place when President Muhammadu Buhari, and his team consisting of Adams Oshiomhole, Bola Tinubu, Rotimi Amaechi among others were booed and pelted at the stadium.
During the rally, Oshiomhole was trying to give a speech, suspected hoodlums booed him and attempted to stone him save the intervention of security operatives at the campaign ground.
The APC National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu said, in a statement, today, that the party regretted Monday’s alleged premeditated attacks purportedly sponsored by Governor Ibikunle Amosun on President Muhammadu Buhari and other senior party leaders at the venue of the presidential campaign rally in Ogun State.
Issa-Onilu, who said the party would review what he called ‘gross misconduct’, added that party supremacy and discipline were not matters of choice but binding principles which must be adhered to by all party members.
The APC spokesman, who urged party supporters and members not to be disturbed by Monday’s condemnable incident, implored all to continue trooping out enmasse for the remaining campaigns and vote massively for only APC candidates in the forthcoming general elections.
“This is one act of indiscipline too many. The APC will not condone acts of indiscipline, indiscretion, and anti-party activities from any party member no matter how highly placed.
“The party will review this gross misconduct of deliberately positioning thugs to attack and embarrass the President and the party’s leadership. The party will take a decision on this matter immediately after the elections,” the statement read in part.
