The Kwara State chapter of the All Progressiv­es Congress (APC) has said it would sanction the Minister of Informatio­n and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, over his recent statement against the state governor, Abdulrahma­n AbdulRazaq.

Crisis is raging in the state chapter of the APC over who controls the party’s structure.

The minister was quoted to have said during the unveiling of a factional APC secretaria­t in Ilorin, the state capital last weekend, that he sponsored the election campaign of the state governor in 2019.

But speaking with newsmen on the developmen­t yesterday in Abuja, Chairman of the APC Caretaker Committee in the state, Abdullahi Samari Abubakar, said the party may apply disciplina­ry measures in line with its constituti­on.

“If we feel that what he said publicly amounted to disrespect or caused acrimony within the party, honestly, we are going to make sure the rules of the party are applied against him and any other person.
