The All Progressives Grand Alliance has warned its members against anti-party activities, especially indulging in campaigning for candidates of other political parties.

The warning came a few weeks ahead of the commencement of campaigns for the 2023 general election in a widely circulated letter by its Anambra State chairman,  Nobert Obi, made available to journalists in Awka on Wednesday.

But a party source had told our correspondent that the warning may be coming as a result of the wide acceptance of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, who has gained wide acceptance across the political parties in the state.

Anambra State has two presidential candidates – a former governor of the state, Obi contesting on the platform of the LP and former Chief Judge of the state, Prof. Peter Umeadi of the APGA.

The letter, which was also circulated to members of the State Working Committee and all the Local Government Areas and ward chairmen of the party was dated August 18 2022 with Ref. No. APGA/AN/08/60.

 

In the letter, the chairman said that his attention had been drawn to several anti-party activities by some of its members who, he said were consciously or unconsciously campaigning for candidates of other political parties.

He declared that such activity shall be visited with severe disciplinary action as listed in Section 22 of the APGA Constitution.

The letter reads, “You may wish to know that it is wrong for any member to the campaign, solicit votes, or attend any activity organised 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.”
