APC primary: Aregbesola tells members to move against violence

APC primary: Aregbesola tells members to move against violence, Minister of Interior Ogbeno Rauf Aregbesola has appelaed to members of the All Progressives Congress(APC) to prevent violence and thuggery in the ongoing governorship primary.

He specifically told women to lead the voting process to prevent attacks by thugs during the exercise.

Aregbesola, who has mounted stiff opposition to the second term bid of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola, in a statement he personally signed, appealed to members of the party to conduct themselves peacefully
According to him: “This electoral cycle is a two-staged process. The first is intra-party, meaning that our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), will democratically nominate its candidate. The second stage, inter-party, will take place in a state-wide election sometime in July, God willing.

“I am appealing to all our party members to participate but peacefully in the primary election taking place today. They should avoid any form of violence, brigandage and disorderliness.

“Our party members, especially our supporters, should be resolute to cast their vote, not to be intimidated and scared away.”

“But they should portray themselves and the party in the best form in comportment, organisation and promotion of societal peace and tranquillity.

“I am also appealing to our members to push out the women and let them lead the process by coming out decently and peacefully.

“This is to demonstrate the customary dignity of women as matriarchs, mothers, wives and daughters, which confers on them the special protection status from violent attacks from thugs and hoodlums.
Our overall objective is to have a transparent, free, fair and peaceful election.

“You should know that we are first a community of humans before we are a political community. Our peaceful coexistence, therefore, supersedes every other activity.”
