APC moves to probe vi­o­lence in state con­gresses

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Muideen Olaniyi

The All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) has con­demned the vi­o­lence that greeted its last Saturday’s state con­gresses to elect del­e­gates for the planned na­tional non-elec­tive con­ven­tion.

The party, in a state­ment is­sued by its Na­tional Chair­man, Chief John OdigieOye­gun, yes­ter­day, said it found the vi­o­lence in Rivers and Kaduna states quite dis­turb­ing.

The party, how­ever, stated that most of the state con­gresses were peace­ful and con­ducted in com­pli­ance with guide­lines and di­rec­tives given to the ap­pointed congress com­mit­tees.

It voiced its re­grets and con­dem­na­tion over the at­tack on the Na­tional Union of Jour­nal­ist (NUJ) Sec­re­tar­iat in Kaduna, which re­sulted in in­juries to two jour­nal­ists.

The party promised to in­ves­ti­gate the re­ported cases and take nec­es­sary ac­tion in line with its con­sti­tu­tion against who­ever is found cul­pa­ble.

The party also con­grat­u­lated and com­mended all the states whose ex­er­cise went peace­fully, stat­ing that “where griev­ances have been re­ported, the party shall ex­am­ine such cases and ad­dress them ac­cord­ingly.”
