The All Progressives Congress (APC), yesterday declared that it will not tolerate any further shift in the general elections rescheduled for March 28 and April 11.
In a communique issued at the end of its First Leadership Meeting in Abuja, the party resolved “that the rescheduled election dates of March 28 and April 11 remain sacrosanct as the party will not tolerate any further shift.
“That the use of the card readers for March 28 and April 11 is non-negotiable, as contrary to the misinformation being disseminated, the use of card readers is not synonymous with electronic voting.”
The party also resolved that immediate and necessary disciplinary action be taken against all individuals that were involved in the subversion of democracy in June 21 Ekiti governorship election as revealed by the videos released by Sahara Reporters.
“They include, Brigadier General Aliyu Momoh who should be immediately investigated by the military authorities; Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Jelili Adesiyan, who should immediately be relieved of his ministerial appointment; former Minister of State for Defence Affairs, Senator Musliu Obanikoro whose name has just been sent to the Senate for confirmation again as a minister of the Federal Republic must not be confirmed by the Senate and must be barred henceforth from holding any public office.
The party also resolved at the end of its meeting, “That in line with the Court of Appeal decision of yesterday (Monday) that upheld an earlier judgment of the Sokoto Federal High Court that ruled as illegal the participation of the military in the electoral process, the military should be kept away from election duties henceforth.”
