April 2, 2023.
I sincerely commend the leadership of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State ably led by Elder Omeni Sobotie over the recent expulsion and suspension of Dr. Cairo Ojougboh and Madam Lauretta Onochie, respectively, as members of the party over their involvement in anti-party activities.
Particularly, I commend the Ward executive members of Alihame Ward 06, Ika South LGA and Onicha Olona Ward 04, Aniocha North LGA for rising to the occasion and commencing this important mission of saving our party from saboteurs.
The bold decision of the party leadership to activate the exit buttons for unrepentant erring members is consistent with standard political practice globally, even as it aligns with the provisions of Article 21.1(i), (ii), 21.3(iv) and 21.5(g) of the Constitution of the All Progressives Congress 2022 as amended.
It is disheartening to find members of the APC who have continued to feed fat from opportunities afforded them by the party working tirelessly to frustrate her growth at the state level. This will serve as a deterrent to other as we are tired of the Monkey they work baboon they chop adage
The actions of the duo, especially in the last General elections not only negate the expectations of party stalwarts who have continued to benefit immensely from the party but also run afoul of democratic norms and rules of administration of political parties anywhere in the world.
Indiscipline in political parties is antithetical to democratic consolidation and good governance. Therefore, to maintain its stability and sustain its quest for power and the primacy of its agenda, the need for party discipline has become increasingly important.
I take this opportunity to call on our members to uphold the party’s interest at all times and shun actions that are capable of undermining its survival and growth.
