ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Anambra State of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), has warned its members against voting or campaigning for candidates of other political parties, as 2023 general elections approaches.
The Anambra State chairman of APGA, Sir Nobert Obi, gave the warning in a press release circulated among members of the State Working Committee and all the Local government area and Ward chairmen.
He noted that it amounted to anti-party to do so.
It was learnt that the warning may have come as a result of the wide acceptance the presidential candidate of Labour Party, (LP), Mr. Peter Obi is gaining across political party in the State.
The chairman said that his attention had been drawn to several unwholesome activities of certain members of the APGA who are campaigning for candidates of other political parties.
He noted that, “You may wish to know that it is wrong for any member to campaign, solicit votes, or attend any activity organized by other political parties or their candidates other than our great party APGA.
“Such development is considered anti-party activity and an act of indiscipline in breach of Article 21, General Code of Conduct of our great party.
“There are several cases of members belonging to WhatsApp, Facebook and other social media platforms that promote and campaign for candidates of other political parties. Not a few even go as far as sharing posts that promote candidates who are not APGA members,” the chairman said.
The Chairman emphasized that such an action was dangerous to the overall interest of APGA which had the intention to sweep the 2023 general elections, especially in Anambra State where the party is fielding candidates in all elective position.
He said such activity shall be visited with severe disciplinary action as stated in the party’s constitution.
