The All Progressives Congress (APC) has vowed to punish the perpetrators and sponsors of the ruckus that happened at the Presidential campaign in Abeokuta.
Flags of the Allied People’s Movement (APM) were seen being hoisted by people believed to be working on the instructions of Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun.
The Ogun State Governor supervised the pulling down of placards and posters of the APC Governorship candidate in the state, Senator Dapo Abiodun.
In the event that was the nadir of the violence shown in Abeokuta on Monday, President Buhari was stoned by hoodlums as he raised the hand of Sen. Abiodun as the party’s candidate.
In a statement by Lanre Issa Onilu, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, he said it is a disgraceful act that calls for swift actions as he promised that sponsors of the act will be duly punished.
”The All Progressives Congress (APC) regrets Monday’s premeditated attacks sponsored by Governor Ibikunle Amosun on President Muhammadu Buhari and other senior party leaders at the venue of the presidential campaign rally in Ogun State,” Mr Issa-Onilu said.
”Party supremacy and discipline according to our constitution are not matters of choice but binding principles which must be adhered to by ALL party members.”
Amosun has previously declared his opposition against the party’s choice as he has shown his support for his anointed candidate, Adekunle Akinlade and even took him to Abuja for the endorsement of the President.
