APC disowns parallel LG Congresses nationwide


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that it won’t recognise any congress not conducted in accordance with the party constitution, which was organised by the congress committee charged by the party nationwide.
There have been reported cases of parallel Local Government Congresses in Kwara, Delta, Enugu among other states.
But responding in a statement Monday in Abuja, APC National Publicity Secretary Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, described such so-called parallel congresses as exercise in futility and attempt to cause confusion in the party.
“I have received requests from some of our colleagues on the issue of so-called parallel congresses in a couple of States.
“The Party position is that there is no such thing as parallel congress. The only congress recognised by the party is that conducted in accordance with the party constitution, which was organised by the congress committee charged by the party to organize such congress.
“We therefore regard any so-called parallel congresses as exercise in futility and attempt to cause confusion in the party.
“We wish to reiterate that any party member who has any genuine grievances regarding the congresses should channel such through the Appeals Committee in their respective states.”
