APC to investigate Amosun’s role in rowdy Ogun rally
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has threatened to take punitive measures against Governor Ibikunle Amosun over the violence that marred the party’s rally in the state. 
In a statement by APC spokesman, Mallam Lanre-Issa Onilu, the party said the attacks by the crowd was premeditated.
Lanre-Issa Onilu said, ‘The All Progressives Congress (APC) regrets Monday’s premeditated attacks 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.
‘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 spokesman said party supremacy and discipline according to the APC’s constitution are not matters of choice but binding principles which must be adhered to by all party members.
“The APC is a party known for discipline, justice, fairness and equality hence any plan to destroy what this party stands for would be rejected. No single person will be allowed to put his personal and selfish interests ahead of the wishes of the people of Ogun state and elsewhere.
“Post primaries, the decision of the National Working Committee to uphold the wishes of party members is unbendable. Therefore, whatever means being presently deployed by persons intending to undermine the wishes of the people for personal gains will not be tolerated”.
APC urged the party supporters and members not to be disturbed by Monday’s condemnable incident.
“We urge all to continue trooping out enmasse for our remaining campaigns and vote massively for ALL and ONLY APC candidates in the forthcoming general elections”. Channels TV
