Some foreign delegates have lamented the ill-treatment they received at the ongoing national convention of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)
currently taking place at Eagles Square,
Abuja.In a video in circulation which was sighted by DAILY INDEPENDENT,
a foreign delegate from Canada,
said they arrived at the venue of the convention as early as 7 am but were not allowed admittance as at 1 pm.He said they were asked to be in the queue but were beaten while some of them have their phones stolen.“
They sent us an e-mail that we should come by 7’o clock in the morning. We were there at 7 am. Later, they sent another e-mail that we should come at 9 am.
They gave us a tag, took us on a bus. We went round all this place for almost one hour. They couldn’t let us in”.“They finally told us to form a line.
We got on the line. They started beating us, stealing our phones. As I am talking to you,
we are still standing outside. Just look at what they are doing to foreign delegates. This is very unacceptable and the government has to know this.
I came all the way from Canada and this is what we are getting”.
