The All Progressives Congress (APC) has warned that any purported parallel congress, parallel party organ and or parallel party office would not be tolerated by the national leadership of the party ahead of Saturday’s Ward congresses.

The National Secretary of the Caretaker/ Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of the party, Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, in a notice to party members said the party would deploy the full weight of the law as stipulated in Section 21(D) of the party’s Constitution on any one who engages in such act.

In the notice, the party said it was important that the attention of all party faithful was drawn to the resolution of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of 8th December, 2020, which subsists and extends to the conduct of party members during the congresses.

The party noted that for the purposes of clarity, it restated that all pending litigations instituted by members against the party should be withdrawn forthwith, and going forward, no member should institute matters against the party, without exhausting the internal mechanism for conflict resolution, as enshrined in the party’s constitution.

The ruling party said as a consequent of the above, party members should note that all activities that may be carried out by persons to put the party and its officers in bad light, before, during and after the congresses should be jettisoned.

It added: “All activities or processes congresses and thereafter which do not have the approval of the CECPC are exercises in futility. This is to say that: any purported; parallel congress, parallel party organ and or parallel party office, is to say the least a nullity. These divisive activities will not be tolerated.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the party shall deploy the full weight of the law as stipulated in section 21(D) of our party’s Constitution on any one who perpetrates such unlawful Act(s) and also on their sponsors.”

The party therefore on called all persons who are affected by Article 31 of the party’s constitution to apply for waivers as stipulated under Section 3 of the said Article 31.
