The All Progressives Congress has revealed that it will sanction Ogun State governor Ibikunle Amosun and every other person behind the attack on President Muhammadu Buhari and other senior party leaders at the venue of the presidential campaign rally in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

In a statement on Tuesday by APC National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre-Issa Onilu, the party blamed Amosun for “premeditated attack” on President Buhari and other leaders at the Ogun State rally.

“This is one act of indiscipline too many. The APC will not condone acts of indiscipline, indiscretion and anti-party activities from any party member no matter how highly placed,” it said.

The party further threatened that it will review the gross misconduct of deliberately positioning thugs to attack and embarrass the President and the party’s leadership.

On the candidacy of Dapo Abiodun as the party’s Ogun state flagbearer, Onilu said the decision of the National Working Committee to uphold the wishes of party members is unbendable.

“The party will take a decision on this matter immediately after the elections.” the statement read.

It continued; “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.

“The APC is a party known for discipline, justice, fairness and equality hence any plan to destroy what this party stands for would be rejected. No single person will be allowed to put his personal and selfish interests ahead of the wishes of the people of Ogun state and elsewhere,” it said.
