Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday urged members of the public to shun activities of some individuals who parade themselves as All Progressives Congress Youth Vigilante (APCYV).
It said there was nobody inaugurated to operate under APCYV within the party in the state.
The APCYV in a press statement signed by Destiny Oviasu, Abu Umoru, Odianosen Sunday, had threatened to carry out mass protest to achieve sanctity, sanity and democratic practices in Edo APC.
The statement also appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari not to consider former Governor Adams Oshiomhole for any political appointment.
But APC Youth Chairman in the state, Hon. Valentine Asuen, who spoke in a chat with newsmen, said the people claiming to be APCYV were not recognised members of the party.
Asuen urged President Buhari to ignore the statement credited to the group and consider Oshiomhole for political appointment as promised when he (Buhari) visited the state to commission some projects.
According to him, “There is nothing like Edo APC Youth Vigilante Group. I have called other youth wings across the state; they have denounced knowing the names Destiny Oviasu, Abu Umoru, Odianosen Sunday as members of the APC.
“That publication should be ignored; Oshiomhole is our leader, who created the platform for this present administration. He deserves good political appointment from Buhari because he has done well for the people of Edo State.
“There is no reason for Oshiomhole not to be given appointment. When Buhari came to commission some projects in Edo State, he said Oshiomhole deserve to be given some national assignment.
“Oshiomhole bank of wisdom in the polity of Nigeria should be harvested.”
