Governor Dapo Abiodun has threatened that aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who challenge the outcome of the primaries in court, will be expelled from the party.
Abiodun said this on Saturday when he led the APC team on a campaign tour to his Ikenne Local Government.
The Governor expressed concern that some aspirants from his local government had dragged the party to court to seek redress.
According to Abiodun, this is an anti-party activity that would not be tolerated in the party.
He said “More than one person vied for the chairmanship position in Ikenne Local Government, but we know only one of them will emerge as the candidate. It is only God that enthrones a king, I am a testimony to that.
“We also have many councillorship aspirants. But, I learnt that some people went to court in my own local government. I am not happy with that development. I’m not happy.
“Anybody who goes to court should go and withdraw the case immediately. It is anti-party. Anybody who goes to court will be sent out of the party. There must be discipline in this party,” he added
He further said “All those who were not picked as candidates, I am assuring you that the serious ones among them will be given appointments by me your governor; if not at the local government, I will give them appointments in Abeokuta. After that promise, I don’t want to hear any crisis in this local government again,”
