The crowd was booing, jeering and throwing objects at leaders of the party who came to the podium to speak.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has vowed to deal with all those involved in the ugly incident which took place during its rally in Ogun state on Monday, February 11, 2019.

According to Daily Post, APC’s spokesman, Lanre Issa-Onilu said the party will not allow any individual put his or her selfish ambition above the wish of the people.

The crowd was booing, jeering and throwing objects at leaders of the party who came to the podium to speak.

Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) had to protect President Buhari from being hit by the objects.

It got worse when the APC chairman, Adams Oshiomhole tried to introduce the party’s governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun.

Abiodun’s choice did not go down well with the Ogun state Governor, Ibikunle Amosun who is sponsoring his candidate, Adekunle Akinlade to run for Governor on the platform of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM).

APC condemns the incident

Condemning the incident, Issa-Onilu called on the ruling party’s supporters not to be deterred by Monday’s incident.

He said “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 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.
