Ward Congresses: APC Solicit Petitions From 14 States

Former National Chairman Comrade Adams Oshiomhole said he has no plan to return to his former position in the party.

All Progressives Congress (APC), have begun soliciting petitions from 14 states concerning protests on the outcome of ward congresses.

Twelve state chapters are yet to submit reports of the congresses to the Mai Mala Buni-led National Caretaker Committee, three weeks after.

There is concern in the party that the non-conclusion of congresses may affect announcement of dates for local government and state congresses.

The dates may not be disclosed, until reports of the ward congress appeal panels are presented before the national secretariat.

Former National Chairman Comrade Adams Oshiomhole said he has no plan to return to his former position in the party.

During the time of inaugurating Appeal Panel Committees for the ward congress yesterday, only 21 of the 33 states where the congress held had submitted reports. The Ward congresses were held on July 31. Congress did not hold in Anambra, Bayelsa and Zamfara states.

The Nation reported that the national secretariat received petitions from, Akwa Ibom, Enugu, Niger, Kwara, Ekiti, Osun, and Kano among other states.

The Chairmen and Secretaries of the five-man Appeal Panel Committee for each of the 33 states and Federal Capital Territory (FCT) were inaugurated by the Chairman of CECPC, Yobe State Mai Mala Buni at the party secretariat in Abuja.

The inauguration of the Appeal Panels came five days after the committee was scheduled to have completed the assignment. The earlier timeline and schedule for the Ward Congress Appeal Panel Committee was to have been between the 1st and 7th of August.
