APC: Parallel congress exercise in futility

Chief Rochas Okorocha

The national publicity secretary, of the party, Bolaji Abdullahi, made this known in a statement on Monday while reacting to news of parallel congresses in a some states.

Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, has assured members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party will soon announce new dates for the Ward and Local Government Congress.

President Muhammadu Buhari, meanwhile, has stressed the need to reform Article 51 of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption and the Article 16 (1)(c) of the African Union Convention for Preventing and Combating Corruption.

"The party's position is that there is no such thing as parallel congress". He noted that the 1999 Constitution empowers the Federal Government to control the police, but "sadly, the Federal Government has delegated the control it has over the security agencies to certain individuals in the All Progressives Congress (APC), and it now uses security officers to achieve whatever it desires in Rivers".

"How could there have been Congress?" We came here and I've never found a more peaceful people in any part of the world, so accommodating and pleasing.

However, Mr Theodore Ekechi, the spokesman for the Imo APC delegation and a former Commissioner for Information and Strategy said the meeting with Osinbajo was very eventful. It was also directed that the congress committee from Abuja should meet with stakeholders on arrival and be briefed on arrangements and agreements already reached in the state.

Today, we held our LG congresses within the headquarters of the 33 LGs in the state.

"From the rascally attempt to overrun a court of competent jurisdiction in Port Harcourt, Rivers State to halt the wheel of justice, the burning of their own secretariat in Owerri, Imo state, the gruesome murder of their own members in Lagos and Oyo States to the malignant disputation and lust for power by its leaders across the nation, it is clear that the APC is not organic but a soulless mob without any form of conscience and integrity; an "evil wind that blows no good".

"Since its emergence, the APC and its leaders have continued to drag our nation towards a state of anarchy by engaging in actions that instigate bloody conflicts and breakdown of law and order among Nigerians, including in their fold as a party".

"The Southsouth caucus of the party had met at the home of the Minister of Transportation, (Chibuike Amaechi, ) in Abuja and directed that certain steps be taken by leaders in the states to build confidence in the process before the congresses should begin".

At Ose Local Government, the following were elected and returned as the executive of the party: Ladi Tenabe (Chairman), Adetula Solomon Ade (Vice chairman), Dele Isibor (Secretary), Gabriel Ebegbe (Treasurer ), Omage Folorunsho (Financial Secretary), Muyiwa Owolabi (Organising Secretary), Ayedogbon Abiodun (Auditor).
