Ondo APC to Sen Boroffice: Watch your utterances or be sanctioned
THE Ondo State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Sunday, called on the lawmaker representing Ondo North Senatorial districts, Senator Ajayi Boroffice, to watch his utterances as regards the affairs of the party in the state or be sanctioned.
This was contained in a statement issued and signed by the Party Publicity Secretary in the state, Mr. Alex Kalejaye, after a crucial meeting at the State Working Committee (SWC) of the party.
Kalejaye who described the activities of the Senator as unjustifiable said the SWC of the party has called on Boroffice to embrace peace or be sanctioned from the party.
He said “the party organ frowned at the resolve of the lawmaker to keep away from all the activities of the party in the state but finds it convenient to continually fans the embers of discord within the fold.
“Senator Ajayi Boroffice cannot remain at large and continue to speak on behalf of the party; he can’t stay away in Abuja or wherever, and be dishing out what he thinks his supporters in the ‘diaspora’ would applaud.
“We must remind the Senator that his unholy efforts and strategies in the past to disorganise and destroy the party in Ondo State (to no avail) are still fresh in our memories.
“He has the option to retrace his steps and reconcile with the party or continue to hobnob with those that are surreptitiously expending resources and time to deflate the strength and unity of the State Chapter.
“Besides, Mr. Boroffice has taken to the pages of newspapers lately to deliberately paint the vibrant State chapter in terrible lights. This, without mincing words, is vexatious and unacceptable to the Ondo State APC.
“No party member, irrespective of his position, is permitted to play to the gallery at the expense of the highly cherished party image,” the statement read in part.
Kalejaye urged aspirants on the platform of the party to seek the understanding of the people of their constituents, rather than resorting to media campaigns, adding that “elections are not won on the pages of newspapers.”
He said the party is working assiduously to ensure a hitch-free local government and ward elections, as scheduled by the State electoral body.
He said “the Ondo State Independent Electoral Commission has announced date for the local government and ward elections. We are working out modalities to ensure that we handle our own parts diligently so that we don’t falter.”
