The Adamawa Chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has cautioned its members against accepting appointment from People’s Democratic Party (PDP) government of Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri.
A statement on Wednesday by the State Publicity Secretary of APC, Mohammed Abdullahi, said according to the party constitution, anyone who accepted such appointment ceased to be members of APC.
Abdullahi said APC was observing the sustained fruitless effort by PDP in the state to cause disunity among its members.
“We refer to the recent appointments released by the PDP Government in the State that featured the names of some members of our Great Party and wish to draw the attention of the appointees to Article 9.5 of the APC Constitution which states that, any Party Member that accepts a political appointment from any political party or opposition Government ceases to be a member of APC.
“While we commend the loyalty and faithfulness of our Party members who rejected the appointments offered to them by the PDP Government, all those who accept the appointments will have their names removed from the Party Register.
“In conclusion, the APC is keenly watching the PDP government s fruitless efforts in trying to cause commotion and disunity within the APC family. This attempt has failed and will ever fail,” Abdullahi said.
He urged members of the party to remain resolute and focused on supporting the Buhari Administration as the party further unite to take over power in Adamawa State in 2023.
Already, one of the party chieftains given an appointment by Gov. Fintiri as Special Assistant, Mrs Anna Sini has rejected the appointment.
Sini in a letter to APC said she declined the appointment as a loyal party member.
“I am assuring my party that, I remain loyal and committed APC member,” Sini who was an APC Senatorial Aspirant for Adamawa North District said in the letter.
