Registration: Be wary of sponsored side-information – APC tells members
The Anambra State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has cautioned members against what it termed sponsored side-information targeted at inflaming passion to some predetermined goals.
The party in a statement issued by the State Publicity Secretary, Okelo Madukaife, also urged members to avoid behaviours associated with some unethical political parties in the State who revel in violent solutions.
The statement read, “As distribution of materials got underway this afternoon we wish to forewarn our esteemed membership not to allow themselves to be misled by side information with colouration, intended to inflame passion to some predetermined goals.
“We insist that our membership must not be guided by sponsored side-information in order than the official channel of the party, particularly as it concerns the Registration & Revalidation of APC in Anambra State.
“Similarly, party members are urged to avoid any behaviours associated with some unethical political parties in Anambra State who revel in violent solutions.
“Consequently, it has become necessary, and it is hereby clarified for our membership and the public that the chairman of our great party in Oyi Local Government Area is Mr Obed Chuks.
“Similarly, our party in Orumba South LGA is chaired by Mr. Sunday Nwokike to the exclusion of anyone else. Mr Francis Ogbuefi chairs our great party in Ogbaru LGA.
“Any issues or grievances arising from policies made by the LG Executives of the party led by the listed Chairmen above as well as those of other 18 others should be escalated to the next higher organ as lucidly illustrated in our constitution.
“Note that any petitions to the cited organs should be routed to the Secretary of that organ copying the membership and must be signed and dated.
“Any action to the contrary will be brought to book, particularly in this period of registration in which APC is the toast of a beleaguered state eager to be let off the hook of isolationist politics of mean indoctrination without commensurate development.”
While restating the resolve of the party to champion the cause of enthroning a Nigerian President of South East extraction, the party called on the people of the state to join other Ndi Igbo in the train.
“We reaffirm that the mission to rescue our darling state from Iron clutches of irredentist politics of stunted growth is a divine one that is irreversible and urge other party members wishing to join APC to resign their membership and take advantage of the next two weeks to begin a new journey of building with APC.
“Registration of new members and Revalidation of membership for current members begin Thursday,” the statement added.
