Written by Morenike Adebayo on January 22, 2018
The leadership of the All Progressives Congress in Kwara State has dissociated itself from the press statement issued by some party members under the banner of Caucus for Progressive Change, CPC. The Kwara APC says the CPC is unrecognized by the party, and therefore its activities should not be linked to the party.
The CPC had accused the party’s leadership of alleged alienation and imbalance. However, while noting that the content of the CPC’s statement is full of false accusations, the APC says this exposes the sponsors of the group as desperate politicians and agents of division with hidden agenda.
The APC refuted the claim of the group that the party leadership instituted a court case against a party member. It also denied allegation of victimization against party members, saying that the party leadership usually take practical steps to protect the interests of members, especially in the areas of security and welfare.
The APC also stated that the present configuration of the Alhaji Ishola Balogun Fulani-led State Executive Committee (SEC) of the party represents fairness to the legacy parties and equity to the 16 local government areas of Kwara State.
The party frowns at the anti-party statement credited to the group and urged the press and the public not to pay attention to the group.
