The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the attack on its leaders during their rally in Abeokuta, Ogun State on Monday.
The APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and President Muhammadu Buhari were yesterday, booed and stoned at the party’s campaign rally at Ogun state.
Troubles started when Oshiomhole mentioned the name of the party’s governorship candidate in the state, Mr. Dapo Abiodun while addressing the crowd.
However, the party, in a statement by its spokesman, Lanre Issa-Onilu accused the state governor, Ibikunle Amosun of sponsoring the attack.
According to Issa-Onilu, the party “will review this gross misconduct of deliberately positioning thugs to attack and embarrass the President and the party’s leadership.”
Part of the statement read, “The 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. 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.”
