…APC begins another macabre dance
… Call the remnants of your supporters to order
… maintain Peace and Order… Edo PDP caution APC leaders
…asks security operatives to be on alert
Ahead of Saturday ward congresses of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo state, the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, in the State has called on the leadership of the various factions of the party to rein in the remnants of their support to ensure a crisis-free exercise.
It is on record that all the Congresses organized by APC to date have been characterized by thuggery, blood shed and deaths as it is their regular trademark! We therefore call on the security agencies in the State to be vigilant and prevent the breakdown of law and order in any part of the State.
As we wish them a successful Congress, we must advice Edo people not to be tempted or fooled by offers of positions in the executive Committees they are attempting to fill as reliable information reaching us is that in majority of the wards across they state , they cannot raise 20 people to form their Exco. They have resorted to making financial offers to innocent and unsuspecting community leaders to give them names and passport photographs of their residents.
You will recall that their last membership registration exercise in Edo State was an abysmal failure. They registered less than 13000 in the whole state a situation that validates the Edo People position that APC is like a dinosaur that once dominated earth but now it’s relic are only found in museums to teach pre-civilsation wildlife.
Even at that, the various factions are planning to hold parallel Congresses, a development that could lead to mayhem and bloodletting.
With the recent Supreme Court judges position on their national leadership, confusion and panic have been added to the already volatile mix called APC. We caution their leaders to maintain peace and order.
We implore them not to allow their inordinate and selfish interests to jeopardise the peace and harmony of the State.
