The Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has distanced itself from a group known as Edo Peoples Movement, describing it as alien to the party.
In a statement, Edo APC Publicity Secretary, Chris Azebamwan, denied the existence of such a group in the party’s ranks, noting that the existence of the alien group is not supported by the party’s constitution.
He stated that the supposed movement was not only in opposition to the unity and stability of the party, but it was also unknown to the party’s constitution.
According to the statement, the attention of the State Executive Committee of the APC was drawn to a publication by a group called Edo Peoples Movement claiming same to have been done on behalf of the All Progressives Congress, Edo State.

It said, “The aspiration of every responsible political Party such as the APC is to put a government in place that will serve the interests and wellbeing of the citizens of the State such as we have in Mr. Godwin Obaseki and his team. We, therefore, direct all those behind the movement to desist from associating their nefarious activities with the APC.”
Party members were asked to dissociate themselves from the said movement.
“For the avoidance of doubt and in the interest of the general public, there is no provision in the constitution of our Party for any group or movement within the Party other than the organs created by the said constitution. The formation of an alien movement within the Party is antithetical to the unity and stability of the Party, and unknown to law.”
He continued, “We, therefore, disown the said Edo Peoples Movement. The attitude and language of the publication do not conform to acceptable standards, and neither do they reflect the character of our Party.”
