The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun of being the brain behind the hoodlums attack on President Muhammadu Buhari during the party’s campaign rally in Abeokuta.

It was reported that the President and other dignitaries of the party were pelted with objects on Monday at the campaign ground.

In a statement released by the party spokesman, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, he urged the party supporters not to be discouraged by the condemnable incident.

He added that the party will handle the case of Amosun decisively after the elections.

The statement reads: “We urge our teeming party supporters and members not to be disturbed by Monday’s condemnable incident. We urge all to continue trooping out enmasse for our remaining campaigns and vote massively for all and only APC candidates in the forthcoming general elections.”

“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.

“The APC will not condone acts of indiscipline, indiscretion and anti-party activities from any party member no matter how highly placed.

“The party will review this gross misconduct of deliberately positioning thugs to attack and embarrass the President and the party’s leadership. The party will take a decision on this matter immediately after the elections.

“It must be stated that 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.

“The APC is a party known  for discipline, justice, fairness and equality, hence any plan to destroy what this party stands for would be rejected. No single person will be allowed to put his personal and selfish interests ahead of the wishes of the people of Ogun state and elsewhere.

“Postprimaries, the decision of the National Working Committee to uphold the wishes of party members is unbendable. Therefore, whatever means being currently deployed by persons intending to undermine the wishes of the people for personal gains will not be tolerated.”
