The APC in Anambra State has assured it members of full security as provided by the Nigerian Constitution ahead of the gubernatorial election slated for November.

The assurance came in the wake of series of alleged threats by the ruling party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), which said those who registered with the APC would face persecution.

In a statement issued in Awka at the weekend, signed by the State Publicity Secretary of the APC, Okelo Madukaife,  the party vowed to take necessary action on any form of intimidation or oppression meted on “the lowest placed APC member” by any individual or group of persons.”

“Our party states unequivocally that registration of members in Amawbia community and indeed in any of the 326 wards in Anambra State under the on-going registration and revalidation exercise includes protection of their constitutional rights duly provided for in Nigeria’s bill of rights encoded in sections 33 to 46 of the 1999 Constitution.

“Consequently, no member of Anambra State government, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) or indeed any non-APC member who genuinely feels threatened, without our sympathy on the rising popularity of APC in Anambra State, will be allowed to intimidate or oppress the lowest placed APC member for one minute, without commensurate action from us,” he said.
