APC parallel state congress: Party reveals executives it would recognise

Following the reported parallel party congresses in some States on Saturday, the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC) said only congress supervised by its Committee will be recognized.

In a statement signed by the National Secretary, APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Senator James Akpanudoedehe, the APC expressed joy that party members came out enmasse in the various states to elect executives who will oversee the affairs of the party in the next four years.

The party also denied that parallel congresses were conducted in some states as allegedly quoted in some quarters.

The Statement reads in part: “Our attention has been drawn to reports of so called and purported “parallel” Congresses. To borrow the phrase of one of our esteemed governors, such “parallel” Congresses are mere naming ceremonies.

“The purported “parallel” Congresses are futile activities and very strange to the party, our Constitution and the guidelines for the conduct of the State and other Congresses.

“Only exercises conducted by duly inaugurated State Congress Committees are recognised by the party. The APC leadership will not hesitate to take adequate and lawful measures against any person or interest sabotaging the collective party’s interest and efforts to achieve peace and unity in our great party.

“Where contestations exist, adequate conflict resolution measures have been put in place to address them. The party has Appeal committees for every Congress”.

APC boasted that the congress on Saturday was successful and congratulated its members for the outing.
