Ahead of the All Progressives Congress (APC) membership registration and revalidation exercise, youths under the aegis of APC Integrity Forum have raised alarm over alleged plans by hoodlums to disrupt the exercise.
The spokesperson for the forum, Babafila Abdullateef disclosed this at a press conference held In Ilorin on Sunday.
Abdullateef said, “It has come to our notice that some disgruntled members of our great party, the All Progressives Congress under the leadership of former APC State chairman are planning to disrupt the forthcoming membership registration/revalidation exercise.
“This is coming barely two weeks after some elements loyal to some party chieftains addressed a news conference, where they threatened to disrupt the party’s registration exercise.
“While we condemn such baseless resort to threats and anti-party behaviours, we urge these people to let peace reign.
“There are other Kwarans who are apolitical and it would be unacceptable for anyone to disrupt public peace on account of their own political ambitions and ‘me-or-nobody’ mentality.”
The youth, therefore, called on the security agencies to be on an alert and foil the alleged attempt by some disgruntled members of the party to disrupt the exercise.
It was observed that the two factions have started mobilising members for the exercise billed to commence on Tuesday.
The embattled state chairman of the party, Bashir Bolarinwa, insisted that he remained the authentic chairman adding that those who will carry out the exercise had already been trained.
Meanwhile, the Abdullahi Samari-led faction of the party made up of loyalists of the state governor, equally announced that it had trained party staff who would register party members.273
