Twenty local government chairmen, state executive, and aggrieved members of the African Action Congress (AAC) in Kogi have unanimously passed a VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE on the state chairman, Ojodomo Musa Thomas, and the state executive of AAC while adopting Hon. Orunja Gilbert as the new acting chairman.
Released in a report by the party’s faithful, Hon. Apeh Kelvin Abuchi, Ojodomo was ousted from his position on the grounds of impersonating as the Governorship Candidate of the party during the last Kogi election; flouting the rules and decisions of the party; engaging in dishonest practices; defrauding the party; carrying out anti-party activities, and monopolising the party amidst other negligent acts.
While all executive positions at the state level were resolved, other states’ positions were left pending when their congress elections hold.
There to witness the event was the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) and the Police Force.
The African Action Congress (AAC), in the buildup of the upcoming Ondo state Gubernatorial election, has publicly denied its involvement in the endorsement of the People’s Democratic Party, Eyitayo Jegede.
This was released in a press statement signed by the party’s National chairman, Omoyele Sowore.
According to the release, claims of endorsement by AAC was a false publication as such an act went against the principles of the party.
“Our attention has been drawn to a false publication across the media about 11 political parties endorsing PDP’s candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, in the forthcoming Ondo gubernatorial election in which our dear party, AAC, was also falsely reported to be part of the unholy endorsement.
We want to make it categorically clear and loud that as a revolutionary party, we are not and will never be part of an alliance or endorsement which only objective and goal is to continue to weaponise poverty and keep Nigerians in 21st-century slavery. We distance our party completely from this unholy alliance and also want to use this opportunity to appeal to all members and supporters of our dear party including the general public to disregard the information being peddled around the media space.
The African Action Congress is a party of oppressed Nigerians (poor and working people) and will continue to fight and stand with the masses.
Series of branch meetings were held all over Lagos by African Action Congress (AAC) engineered towards liberating Nigeria from the hands of political buccaneers and economic saboteurs and their thieving cronies.
The AAC party is a fasting growing political party in Nigeria today. Join the liberation party.
The African Action Congress (AAC) Party has decided to boycott the 2020 Edo elections in protest of INEC unlawful exclusion of her party and its candidate.
This was released in a statement by the state party chairman, Comrade J.C. Hafiz Lawal today.
According to him, the Edo State Chapter of the African Action Congress (AAC) has resolved in solidarity, to sit at home & boycott the election in reaction to the protest.
He says: “As enshrined in Nigeria’s Constitution, every Nigerian from across tribes, religion, race, colour, sex, and on the required age bracket is eligible to contest for elective positions in Nigeria. However, this is not the case for African Action Congress (AAC) and Hon.Isokpan Edith when INEC, after the party’s primaries, refused to enlist the party for the Edo state election; a situation that has been challenged in the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.
We believe we will get justice in court over the unlawful exclusion of the party/candidate, even if there is gross frustration in the justice system in Nigeria.
Our demands are simple, return AAC and its candidate to the ballot, and pay the damages of having the party lose teaming members to the opposition parties.
Once again, the party in the state will be sitting at home and boycotting the Edo election tomorrow. Victory is Certain!”
