ADAMAWA APC WARNS MEMBERS AGAINST UNDUE CRITICISM AGAINST ELECTED PARTY MEMBERS 

 – Says Criticism Amounts to Anti- Party Activity
Adamawa State Executive Council of the All Progressives Congress,APC,has warned its members in the State to desist from all actions and activities that tend to portray some of their elected members as not performing, stressing that doing so may amount to Anti- Party.
In a Public Announcement seen on one of the media platforms for leaders and members of the Party in the State,the Party frowned at the undue criticisms and what it called diatribes against members elected on the platform of the Party. The statement reads:
“The attention of members of the State Executive Committee ( SEC) of our Great Party,the APC,in the State ,has been drawn to activities and actions of some members of our Party,who, for some personal reasons best known to them, have continued to engage in activities and actions against persons elected on the platform of our Great Party ,without recourse or regard to any of the internal dispute resolution mechanisms that have been made freely available in the Party to settle grievances among members .
“It must be noted ,without prejudice to other personal political ambitions of other intending aspirants in future elections,that any criticism or diatribe against any of our members occupying an elective office is equally a criticism against the Party upon which the person was elected. When the above is done by any of our members, our Party Constitution recognises it as an Anti-Party Activity and the State Disciplinary Comittee or an Ad Hoc one set up for the purpose of redressing any issues in that regard will judge it as so.
“The attention of members of the State Executive Committee ( SEC) ,other Stakeholders and members of our Great Party,the APC,in the State ,has been drawn to  activities and actions of some members of our Party,who, for some personal reasons best known to them, have continued to engage in activities and actions against persons elected on the platform of  our Great Party ,without recourse or regard to any of the  internal dispute resolution mechanisms that have been made freely available in the Party to settle grievances among members .
“It must be noted ,without prejudice to other personal political ambitions of  intending aspirants in future elections,that any criticism or diatribe against any of our members occupying an elective office is equally a criticism against the Party upon which the person was elected. When the above is done by any of our members, our Party Constitution recognises  it as an Anti-Party Activity and the State Disciplinary Comittee or an Ad Hoc one set up for the purpose of redressing any issues in that regard will judge it as so.
“Those who know Party politics,know that you do not do certain things as a member of a Party, however aggrieved you may be . Take for instance,how can it ever happen in a serious Party for a member to begin to threaten to initiate the Process of Recall against a member of the legislature elected on the platform of his own Party. This is unheard of,and such threats and others like it should neither be issued nor carried out against anyone in the same Party with you.
“We , therefore,warn all our members who possess the habit of casting aspersions or pouring invectives,diatribes and undue criticisms on some of our elected members to desist from such actions forthwith. We understand that there may exist frictions and differences between or among  members of the same Party from time to time,but,as we pointed out earlier,there exists also an internal mechanism to address such concerns within the framework of the Party.
 “However,in a situation where such criticisms come from any of our members because of a prospective ambition,as we alluded to earlier,we equally advise that such a person keep their ambition in check until such a time when the Party ,who are the owners of tickets for elective offices and whose right it is to  give out these tickets at the right and opportune time to its members through democratic means , indicates its preparedness  to engage in another round of search for new would-be Party Standard
 Bearers for elective offices.
“Any activities now in the direction of the foregoing by any of our members is grossly premature,ill-timed and adverse to the interest and ideals of our Great Party, since the last General Election has just gone past one year. And as earlier stated,any action or activity of a Party member,which is inimical to the interests,goals, objectives and vision of his Party is anti- Party,which is sanctionable.For any house that is divided against itself,as the saying goes, cannot stand”,the statement concluded.
