We'll Wield The Big Stick If You Participate In Parallel Congress, APC Warns Members

...As Ogun State APC Congress Committee Announces Modalities for Ward Congress




By Jane Okafor, Abuja

As the All Progressives Congress APC prepares for nationwide ward congresses on Saturday (tomorrow), the party has vowed to deal with any member who participates in parallel congress or organises one.

The stern warning was issued on Friday by Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, the party's National Secretary, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC). 

Akpanudoedehe explained that the  divisive activities would not be tolerated, warning that "the party shall deploy the full weight of the law as stiputated in section 21 (D) of our party’s Constitution on any one who perpetrates such unlawful Act." 

The details ...

All Progressives Congress (APC)
NOTICE TO PARTY MEMBERS: A NECESSARY REMINDER*

It is important that the attention of all party faithfuls be called to the NEC resolution of 8th December, 2020, which subsists and extends to the conduct of party members during the congresses.

For purposes of clarity, may I re-state the relevant point in the resolution to wit:

“All pending litigations instituted by members against the party should be withdrawn forthwith, and going forward, no member should institute matters against the party, without exhausting the Internal mechanism for conflict resolution, as enshrined in the party’s constitution”.

Consequent upon the above, party members should please note that:

(i) All activites that may be carried out by persons to put the party and its officers in bad light, before, during and after the congresses should be jettisoned.

(ii) All activities or processes leading up to the congresses and thereafter which do not have the approval of the CECPC are exercises in futility. This is to say that: any purported parallel congress, parallel party organ and or parallel party office, is to say the least a nullity.

These divisive activities will not be tolerated. 

(iii) For the avoidance of doubt, the party shall deploy the full weight of the law as stiputated in section 21 (D) of our party’s Constitution on any one who perpetrates such unlawful Act (s) and also on their sponsors.

(iv) All persons who are affected by Article 31 of our Constitution should apply for waivers as stipulated under sub. Section 3 of the said Article 31, this is also clearly spelt out in the “Special provisions” of our guidelines.
