The All Progressives Congress in Ondo state has implored politicians and political parties to upgrade their concerns for the wellbeing of the people, and suppress the natural instinct to criticize for political gains.
The party also described the allegation that the it is violating government’s directives on how to stem the spread of Coronavirus as erroneous and unproductive political gymnastic.
According to a statement issued by the party’s Publicity Secretary,, Alex Kalejaye, the APC said such allegation is senseless and reckless.
Kalejaiye said APC can neither indulge, nor encourage violation of the directives of the state government restricting public and social gatherings..
The statement reads, “Truth is, the chapter recently held a few online meetings, to interact as a family. We opted for online to promote compliance with measures spelt out by the State Government and the NCDC
As a responsible political party, that is sufficiently knowledgeable about the dangers inherent in playing games with the global pandemic, the APC can neither indulge, nor encourage violation of the directives.
“The Ondo APC appreciates all residents of the state for joining hands with the government and its agents to tackle the dreaded menace, in the interest of all. We assure that the APC-led government in Ondo State will not relax its crave for palliative measures to confront food insecurity while the situation lasts.”
