The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has said any person or group of people planning to conduct parallel Congress aside party’s main congress will not be allowed by the party.
The party’s Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Kunle Oyatomi while restated the instructions that all pending litigations instituted by members against the party be withdrawn forthwith.
He directed that 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
Oyatomi also explained that the APC leadership at the National level had also unanimously vowed to dish out maximum punishment to offenders in accordance with its constitutional provisions.
He said the CECPC Secretary warned party leaders and members to understand that sanctions await whoever holds parallel congress and all activities that may be carried out by persons to put the party and its officers in a bad light, before, during and after the congresses should be jettisoned.
“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 means that any parallel congress, parallel party organ and or parallel party office, is a nullity.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the party shall deploy the full weight of the law as stipulated in section 21(D) of our party’s Constitution on anyone who perpetrates such unlawful Act(s) and also on their sponsors.”
Oyatomi enjoined all the party members in the state to come out massively and make the exercise peaceful.
