The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday likened the decision of Governors Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun State) and Rochas Okorocha (Imo State) to support their preferred governorship candidates on the platforms of other political parties to anti-party activities.

The APC National Publicity Secretary, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu, stated this in a statement issued after a consultative meeting the National Working Committee (NWC) had with 2019 election governorship candidates, state chairmen and state secretaries at its National Secretariat in Abuja.

Issa-Onilu said the meeting led by the APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, frowned at attempts by some leaders to polarise the party in some states following post-primary disputes.

He said the meeting resolved that party leaders must campaign for all candidates of the party eyeing presidential, governorship and legislative positions.

He said that a situation where leaders engaged in selective support by picking and choosing candidates to campaign for and support was declared anti-party.

Issa-Onilu called on governorship candidates to run an issue-based campaign based on the achievements of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration which was evident in all the states of the federation.

The meeting, which urged the party’s governorship candidates to run an inclusive campaign by bringing onboard former aspirants, also encouraged the candidates and other stakeholders to domesticate ongoing peace and reconciliation efforts undertaken by the NWC.

The consultative meeting, which passed a vote of confidence on the NWC, urged them to continue its effort to protect the best interest of the party and pursue efforts to achieve peace and reconciliation in the party.

The meeting also observed a minute silence in honour of the late Chairman of the Cross River State chapter of the Party, Dr. Mathew Achigbe, who died recently in a ghastly auto crash.
